Advisory Services

KONGSBERG MARITIME have a proud history of helping our customers reach their goals. We have a unique combination of operational knowledge and access to data. When customers have ideas or challenges that initiate concepts, we are proud to support them through the process, and create new solutions all the way, until they have a safe and efficient, economic and environmentalfriendly operation. 

With both maritime, technical and operational competence, we work closely together with our customers to develop the best solutions. Our long experience with a wide variety of challenges every day, all over the globe, makes our services exceptional


As part of Kongsberg Maritime Training & Advisory, Advisory Services’ main focus is to assist operators and ship owners to perform marine operations in a safe and secure manner.

By use of engineering simulation tools and coupled analysis of positioning, vessel systems and the industrial mission, ADVISORY SERVICES  can suggest the safest vessel setup and find the optimum tuning of the systems to deliver a safe and green  operation. We combine the product expertise and operational experience with state-of-the-art simulation tools, enabling our clients to operate the equipment correctly under different, changing and challenging operational conditions. Engineering simulation is often performed in connection with operational challenges related to power and thruster capabilities and DP performance.

In KM, we use SIMO and SIMA simulation tools, and when needed, these are directly coupled to KM DP vessel specific SW.

For operational set-up, it is often more convenient to use K-Sim bridge simulators, enabling situation awareness to be addressed in workshops for personnel involved in the operation in a controlled environment. 

We group our Advisory Services into the following three main categories:

  • Engineering simulations
  • Operational simulations
  • Operational support
