Wilhelmsen and Kongsberg establish world's first autonomous shipping company
Land-based control centres will be established to monitor and operate autonomous ships in Norway and internationally.
With a combined 360 years of experience, Massterly will benefit from Kongsberg`s unique technological expertise and solutions, and Wilhelmsen's world-leading experience in logistics and ship management operations.
Norway’s position as a leading maritime nation also creates opportunities in the development of next-generation maritime personnel.
The new joint venture company will be based at offices in Lysaker, Norway, and be fully operational from August 2018. ■
