Norwegian e-navigation company Navtor opened an office in Singapore.

The move comes in response to growing regional demand for distribution solutions as the International Maritime Organization’s electronic chart display and information systems mandate continues its gradual rollout.

“Our philosophy of developing high-tech solutions to simplify tasks for navigators has underpinned our success in Europe, and its appeal will be equally compelling in Asia,” Navtor CEO Tor Svanes said in a statement. “The Asian market is diverse, sophisticated and receptive to innovation, and Singapore is the perfect base for Navtor to take advantage of the opportunities in this unique environment.”

Navtor’s new office is in Singapore’s dynamic central business district and will be led by Jennifer Lee, formerly the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office’s account manager for Admiralty Nautical Products and Services, Asia Pacific.
