Orolia, a global specialist in critical GPS applications, announced the launch of McMurdo Marine Solutions, a new business unit dedicated to integrated solutions for the maritime industry focused on safety, compliance and operational efficiencies. 

Building upon the momentum seen in 2012 for Aids to Navigation products (AtoNs), vessel monitoring, fleet management and safety products, and with the acquisition of U.S.-based Boatracs, Inc. in July of 2012, the newly created business unit is now offering a range of business-to-business software solutions and services to global maritime markets. 

Irwin Rodrigues, Executive Vice President of Orolia, commented, “This new business focus has come about due to the increased demand from our major customers for integrated solutions that encompass hardware, software, and various communications technologies. With our successful track record of growth and expansion, we have taken the next step towards building an agile organization that will be the catalyst for maritime solutions development and expansion within Orolia for the benefit of our customers on a global scale. We believe that a major source of this benefit will derive from leveraging the very broad set of relationships Orolia already possesses with maritime stakeholders in the areas of safety, compliance and vessel operations.”

Commenting on this launch, Pierre Jean Jannin, Senior Business Development Manager of McMurdo Marine Solutions, said, “We support our customers with solutions for positioning, navigation, supervision and communication in difficult environments where standard tools are inadequate. This newly formed business unit is a huge advancement in the group’s strategy to move up the value chain by offering more complete business solution to its customers that operate critical infrastructure in remote or harsh environments. We now have a strategic position in global marine solutions and can benefit from an excellent suite of software and solutions that offer valuable business contributions.”
