The company focuses on protecting the safety and integrity of people, the environment and assets by managing; 24/7 oil spill detection and combating, surveillance and security as well as search and rescue in close cooperation with Industry. NORBIT Aptomar is a part of the NORBIT Group, located in Trondheim, Norway, with further offices in and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Using proprietary technology and commercially available sensors, NORBIT Aptomar merges remotely monitored sensor data into a single display, and distributes it to create a real time common operating picture. Experienced operators interpret the combined sensor data and intervene when necessary to alert and support the offshore operator in case of incident.

In 2014– as a response to numerous oil companies who want the industry to take a broader, more systematic approach to field monitoring – NORBIT Aptomar established a new maritime control center in Trondheim, Norway. The center is called Aptomarin.

Aptomarin combines 24/7 competence and monitoring capacity, with robust detection and an efficient and controlled emergency response management. Aptomarin consists of master mariners and professionals with extensive maritime and nautical competence.

The first oil company to acquire Aptomarin’s services was BG Group, which awarded NORBIT Aptomar a contract to provide 24/7 field monitoring services at the operator’s Knarr field on the Norwegian continental shelf.
