Bergen, Norway – 1st July, 2022
Maritime (KM) distribution agreement comes to an end.
On April 1st 2022 Bergen Engines and Kongsberg Maritime (KM) announced that they will end an agreement whereby KM provided an exclusive route to market for Bergen Engines in the commercial marine sector.
Following a 3-month transition period the separation is now complete.
The agreement was entered into when KM Acquired Rolls-Royce’s commercial marine business in April 2019.
