Kongsberg, BMA Technology to provide electrical systems for Turkish shipbuilders
Norwegian equipment provider Kongsberg Maritime and Turkish firm BMA Technology have formed a strategic alliance for the supply of electrical systems solutions to Turkish shipbuilding industry.
As informed, the partners will provide low-voltage electrical products and engineering services to Turkish shipyards.
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.
