Kongsberg Digital expands investment in Coach Solutions

Software provider Coach Solutions has announced that it has received new investment from parent company Kongsberg Digital.

Coach Solutions offers a toolkit of applications for vessel owners and operators, designed to improve the gathering of data. Founded by Danish shipowner Clipper Group, it was established as an independent company in 2016 before being acquired by Kongsberg Digital in June 2020.

Coach Solutions is now integrated into Kongsberg Digital’s maritime portfolio, offering digitalisation systems that complement Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight data infrastructure and wider ecosystem.

The new funding will be used to recruit new staff to accelerate the next phase of product development, the company says, citing increasing demand for voyage optimisation services in the maritime sector.

“Shipping is undergoing some challenging and important changes, and this investment ensures that we can continue to be a reliable partner for many years to come,” said Christian Råe Holm, Managing Director, Coach Solutions.

“As the experts in the voyage optimisation and vessel performance space, we can take the next steps towards expanding and supporting more clients across more shipping segments.”
