Norwegian marine technology provider Kongsberg Maritime has opened a new facility in Kochi, India.

The main purpose of the plant is for the assembly of waterjets, and it will also offer localised technical support for vessel newbuilding and general support for regional customers. It is located in the Maritime Park adjacent to Kochi’s International Ship Repair Facility.

A newly established team includes service engineers to provide technical support for the wide range of products in Kongsberg’s portfolio, including propulsion, handling and navigation systems. The company is planning further expansion and investment in Kochi.

Annette Holte, president of Kongsberg Maritime India, said: “It is our pleasure to open this new facility in Kochi and expand our operations in India. Being closer to our customers is a fundamental requirement, and through the establishment of a dedicated team here in Kochi, we can provide support when and where it’s needed.”

“The Kochi area is a true maritime hub. Its expected growth in the years to come is underpinned by high levels of expertise and competence in shipbuilding and repair, and we are delighted to be part of Cochin’s bright future. This is a first step for us, and through strategic partnerships, we expect to expand our operations to include assembly and overhaul capability, for our range of waterjets.”

Part of the Kongsberg Group, Kongsberg Maritime delivers positioning, surveying, navigation, and automation solutions to merchant vessels and offshore installations. It employs around 6000 people spread across 117 offices in 33 countries.
