Strive to provide more advanced electrical propulsion systems
Kongsberg Maritime and BMA Technology have formed a strategic collaboration alliance to support the supply of low voltage electrical products and engineering services to Turkish shipyards.
BMA Technology, based in the Gebze Organized Industrial Zone, east of Istanbul, is a technology company providing electrical system solutions for the marine industry.
As part of the alliance agreement, BMA Technology will manufacture, assemble and test Kongsberg Maritime low voltage electrical products in its facility in Türkiye. The company will also provide engineering support and perform commissioning work on the products at the local shipyards, working alongside the Kongsberg Maritime team in Istanbul.
“As the shipping industry moves towards more electrification of vessels, we need to evolve the range of products and services we can provide,” said Mr. Knut Ivar Dybdal, Senior Vice President from Kongsberg Maritime. “This strategic alliance brings both companies together with a shared goal of providing more advanced electrical propulsion solutions directly to shipyards. It also has the added benefit of a local, highly skilled and dedicated team able to work closely with the ship builders, through installation and commissioning of these complex electrical systems.”
BMA Technology is an electrical solution provider, with a prime focus on development, software engineering and production of systems for electrical propulsion of ships. Its electrical systems are installed on a growing number of vessels, across a range of sectors, including fishing, offshore, tugboats and passenger.
