The company will be dealing with Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Offshore, CIMC Raffles, Cosco Shipyard and Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard in China, as well as Hyundai Heavy Industries and Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea.

The contracts have a total value of 330 million Norwegian krone ($A56.8 million).

Included in Kongsberg's delivery scope, to be provided by the Maritime business, are integrated dynamic positioning, automation, navigation and hydroacoustic positioning systems.

Sister company Kongsberg Oil and Gas Technologies will supply riser management solutions to the shipbuilders.

The vessels to be serviced include four advanced drilling units, two advanced accommodation units, six LNG vessels and one LNG floating storage and regasification unit.

One of the four drilling units will be a semi-submersible drilling rig for China Oilfield Services, providing Kongsberg with an opportunity to further cement itself in the Chinese drilling market.

"These new contracts for 2014 build on an excellent 2013 performance in China and Korea, where Kongsberg was chosen for numerous advanced vessel new buildings by major yards and owners," Kongsberg Maritime regional manager Morten Stanger said.
