NORBIT awarded order for multiple Guardpoint Underwater surveillance sonars

Trondheim, 20 January 2022: NORBIT today announces that NORBIT Subsea, part of segment Oceans, has been awarded an order from an undisclosed international customer for delivery of several Guardpoint surveillance sonar systems. The value of the order is approximately NOK 20 million and the systems are expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2022.

“It is satisfying to announce a significant order for Guardpoint, a powerful surveillance tool effective in detecting underwater objects, which was launched last year. This is another example of how NORBIT broadens its product offering and capitalizes on our global sales and distribution platform”, says Per Jørgen Weisethaunet, CEO of NORBIT.

The Guardpoint Underwater Sonar System is a newly developed surveillance tool designed to detect targets in challenging environments. The system automatically detects, tracks, classifies and alerts to the presence of underwater objects, where one sonar offers a surveillance range of up to 1000 meters. NORBIT Subsea provides a unique offering of sonar heads at different frequencies adapting to open sea and shallow and restricted waters.

A final contract is subject to the parties agreeing on certain terms and conditions.
