In 2014– as a response to numerous oil companies who want the industry to take a broader, more systematic approach to field monitoring – 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 Aptomar a contract to provide 24/7 field monitoring services at the operator’s Knarr field on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Integrated Field Monitoring by Aptomar: Improve safety, Reduce cost, Create value

Aptomar was founded in 2005 by Lars Andre Solberg, Jonas Aamodt Moræus and Håkon Skjelten, who all still have central positions in the company. Besides the founders and other employees, Statoil Technology Invest, ProVenture Seed, Investinor, Verdane Capital, SMN Invest and NTNU TTO are shareholders of Aptomar. The company and its  employees are based in Trondheim, the technological capitol of Norway. Agents and representatives are located world wide.

Aptomar places much emphasis on the core values of the company: Proud, Fearless, Open and Responsible. We actively use and follow these values in our daily business, in order to provide the best results for our customers, employees and owners.

For the first five years of the company, focus has been on the product SECurus. The product and the technology was the brainchild of the founders, and has been developed in cooperation with and supported by pilot customers, Statoil, ENI, Møkster, NTNU, Forskningsrådet (Norwegian Research Council) and Innovasjon Norge (Innovation Norway). Aptomar and SECurus has won several technology and start-up awards.

After making the first commercial installation of SECurus on Volstad Princess in June 2008, the ground-breaking SECurus technology has created a new standard for multi sensor integration and tactical decision support  for emergency response operations.

Since then Aptomar has evolved from a sensor supplier, to become a leading provider of systems and and services to safeguard people, the environment and assets
