Kongsberg Maritime has officially renamed GlobalSim Inc., its wholly owned onshore and offshore crane simulator subsidiary, to Kongsberg GlobalSim Inc. The name change is part of GlobalSim’s ongoing incorporation into Kongsberg Maritime’s corporate structure, and represents a deeper connection between the company and the Kongsberg brand.

Acquired by Kongsberg Maritime in 2008, Kongsberg GlobalSim, Inc. is a company in the development of advanced simulation training systems. Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, the company has delivered training systems for equipment operators in the maritime, construction, offshore, intermodal, military and mining industries throughout the world.

“With Kongsberg GlobalSim now fully entrenched in the corporate structure we can offer even more value by bringing its unique approach to onshore and offshore crane simulation into the full picture,” adds Paal Aamaas, Vice President, Kongsberg Maritime Simulation. “Within simulation, the full picture approach ensures that our customers can offer integrated simulation training across navigation, automation and crane operation, providing benefits in safety, efficiency and preparedness for critical missions.”
