“Building a relationship with the Zamboanga City State College of Marine Sciences and Technology not only helps us to assist in guaranteeing the professionalism of future maritime graduates, but also cements our already leading position within maritime training in the Philippines,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, Executive Vice President Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital.

“Zamboanga City is the country’s largest exporter of tuna and other marine products, and this contract confirms (Kongsberg Digital’s) strong global position within training for crews and operators in the fishery segment.”
