Kongsberg Digital Acquires a Share of NSG Digital
Kongsberg Digital is purchasing a 34 percent ownership share in NSG Digital, a subsidiary of the supply base and logistics company NorSea Group. NorSea Group, controlled by Wilhelmsen, is joining forces with Kongsberg Digital to digitalize the supply chain in the oil and gas and offshore wind industries.
Kongsberg Digital and NSG Digital have collaborated since the beginning of 2017 on developing a new logistics system called NSG E2E. NSG E2E (End-to-End) is offered as a part of Kongsberg Digital's application platform, Kognifai, and is a solution that improves logistics management through increasing information sharing and collaboration in the supply chain. The partnership is now further strengthened.
“We are very excited by the investment in software development made by NorSea Group and its subsidiary NSG Digital. The news that is presented today is one of several collaborative projects in our group, and digitalization is shaping our future within the maritime industry," said Chief Digital Officer of Wilhelmsen, Inge André Sandvik.
“NorSea Group`s existing services and infrastructure already make us a major player within offshore logistics. With our position it is vital that we take an active role in offering digital solutions that will lead to a more efficient supply chain. This is done through NSG Digital, and in collaboration with Kongsberg Digital, our customers and our suppliers," said Chief Commercial Officer in NorSea Group, Ola Thuen Neergaard.
“Our goal is to ensure an open and robust solution for logistics management for the entire supply chain. We have identified strong synergies between Kongsberg Digital and NSG Digital from the outset of our collaboration, and both companies are now increasing their efforts in developing new and effective digital solutions. The fact that Kongsberg Digital is purchasing a share of NSG Digital is a natural next step in our joint commitment,” said Managing Director of NSG Digital, Henrik Heggland.
