His Royal Highness The Crown Prince Haakon Magnus visited the StormGeo headquarters in Bergen
May 22 2014 His Royal Highness The Crown Prince Haakon Magnus visited the StormGeo headquarters in Bergen. “It is gratifying that our results and focus areas of applied research and development are gaining visibility,” said Kent Zehetner, CEO of StormGeo.
The Crown Prince was given a tour of the forecasting operations center, interacted with employees, and received an overview of the company, its products and services. Two new priority areas discussed were environmental monitoring for drilling and production operations offshore, and advanced solutions for fuel savings and operational criteria for special purpose offshore vessels. Both products are low cost investments and contribute to significant risk reductions while providing potentially very large cost savings for customers. “For these products, StormGeo takes the combination of our existing infrastructure and expertise in meteorology, oceanography, engineering, modeling and ship design a big step forward,” said Zehetner.
