Kongsberg Maritime Acquires Contros Systems & Solutions GmbH

Kongsberg Maritime has acquired the remaining 90% of the shares of the Germany based underwater chemical sensors specialist Contros Systems & Solutions GmbH. Contros was established in 2006 and is based in Kiel, close to Hamburg. The company develops, produces and markets underwater sensor systems to detect dissolved gasses such as hydrocarbons, CO2 and oxygen, as well as pH and total alkalinity (TA). Contros has built a strong reputation as a provider of complete systems for offshore early leak detection and environmental monitoring.

Following the acquisition, Contros will be part of the Subsea Monitoring business unit of Kongsberg Maritime's Subsea Division. The focus of the business unit is the development, engineering and realization of modular, scalable and networked subsea monitoring systems for existing and emerging markets, such as environmental monitoring, leak detection, marine research, arctic applications, fish farming and offshore renewables.
