A new business aims to gather ocean-related competence, technology and R&D capacity under one umbrella to create a global supplier of technology, products, solutions and services for the ocean space domain.

Targeting the global offshore, maritime and aquaculture markets, NORBIT Oceans has been established by Norway-based global technology group NORBIT and will include NORBIT Subsea AS, NORBIT Aptomar AS, NORBIT Aqua and NORBIT Defence.

“Our engineers have developed a range of ground breaking technologies, products and solutions that enable effective and safe operations in their specific industry segments,” said Per Jørgen Weisethaunet, chairman and group CEO of NORBIT.

“Bringing together the best engineers, knowledge and technology from several different markets enables us to offer technology, products, solutions and services across the entire ocean space domain.”

NORBIT Subsea AS provides wideband multibeam sonars for hydrographic applications and subsea leakage detection for the oil and gas and maritime industries. Acquired last year, NORBIT Aptomar AS provides integrated field monitoring services for the marine and offshore industries.

NORBIT Aqua offers a range of specialised solutions for the aquaculture industries, including high power submersible and dimmable multispectral lights for fisheries and cage-based farming.

NORBIT Defence provides customised underwater acoustics, radar and camera command and control systems and naval intelligent antenna systems for submarines and surface vessels.
