MARINTEK and KOMERI signs collaborative agareement

MARINTEK and the Korean research company KOMERI have signed an agreement to collaborate.

MARINTEK and KOMERI signs collaborative agreement"We are extremely pleased to have signed this agreement to collaborate with KOMERI. MARINTEK will quite certainly benefit from the expertise of the Koreans, while they have said that they find our own expertise very attractive. In September, a number of us will be travelling to Korea to visit KOMERI, quite simply in order to get to know how they operate," says Beate Kvamstad-Lervold, MARINTEK's Vice President Maritime.

KOMERI's top management team first came to Nor-Shipping in early June. While they were in Oslo, several MARINTEK staff were invited to the Grand Hotel along with a few hundred other Korean and Norwegian representatives from the marine sector. The Korean delegation then came to Trondheim to visit MARINTEK. They visited several of our laboratories at Tyholt, as well as SINTEF Energy Research's wind laboratory and the Geotechnical Laboratory at NTNU. KOMERI president Jeong-Ryul Kim expressed that he was extremely pleased with his visit.

Impressed by laboratories

"I am very pleased that we were invited to visit MARINTEK and at the same time had the opportunity to acquaint ourselves with the many other activities of SINTEF and NTNU. The laboratories here are very impressive. The aim of the agreement is to improve our technical competence and, just as importantly, to expand KOMERI' s range of commercial activities," said Kim.

At present, the Korean company, which has about 180 employees, focuses mainly on testing and certifying equipment for the maritime industry. In the future, it aims to widen its business focus to include both engines and electronics, as well as sources of renewable energy such as floating wind turbines. All of these are areas in which MARINTEK has a high level of expertise.

"We have done some work on maritime communications technology, and we are aware that MARINTEK is also very competent in this area, so this is a field in which we are hoping for an exchange of expertise," concludes KOMERI's President Jeong-Ryul Kim.
