Kongsberg Maritime has opened a new facility in Kochi, India, as part of a strategic drive to enhance customer support and prepare for future assembly of its waterjet products.

Delegates attending the special opening ceremony included Norway’s Ambassador to India, May-Elin Stener, Bejoy Bhasker, Director (Technical), Cochin Shipyard, and senior officials from the Indian Navy and Coastguard. 

Located in the Maritime Park adjacent to Cochin Shipyard’s International Ship Repair Facility (ISRF), the new Kongsberg Maritime facility will provide local specialist technical support for newbuilding and other projects undertaken within the Cochin Shipyard, and general support for customers in the Kochi region.

Future plans include further expansion and investment to enable the assembly and overhaul of Kongsberg Maritime’s range of Kamewa waterjets, as part of a strategic move to support the Indian Government’s ‘Make in India’ strategy to develop more home-grown capability across a range of industries.
