Malaysian Contract for Kongsberg

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Kongsberg Maritime has been awarded a contract by HJS Maritime SDN. BHD, Malaysia to deliver two Polaris Ship's Bridge Simulators for use in a new centre of excellence being built for the Malaysian Marine Department. This key contract follows the recent installation of the world's largest 360° marine navigation simulator at the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP), Philippines and reflects Kongsberg Maritime's leading marine simulation position in Asia.

The contract win is a result of a competitive tender involving ten Malaysian companies and five major international simulator suppliers. Captain Dato Ahmad Othman, Director General, Malaysian Marine Department, elaborates: "Kongsberg Maritime has very good worldwide references and was awarded the contract based on the technical proposal, where they scored the highest. Local company HSJ Maritime SDN. BHD is the main supplier for the delivery whilst Kongsberg Maritime in cooperation with their local sales representative, Kelana Stabil (M) SDN. BHD., are a major sub-contractor."

The scope of supply comprises two full mission Polaris simulators, with integrated GMDSS and a tailor-made training package with different simulation exercises, designed by a team comprising Willem Barentsz Maritiem Instituut (Netherlands), Lantec Marine Inc. (Canada) and Pelorus Intelligence & Technology Academy (Malaysia). Additionally, Kongsberg Maritime has contributed its decades of marine simulation experience to support the building of a brand new building for the Malaysian Marine Department, which is specially designed to house the Polaris simulators and other rooms dedicated to improving the marine training capabilities in Malaysia.
