You should let Kongsberg know what you find wrong, don't like, or think could/should be improved. I'm sure they would appreciate your input and, in combination with other comments from actual users, (not from people that just want to criticise anything non-American) would make an effort to improve their products.
That is how small Norwegian companies have become world beaters within the Offshore Marine field. Just look at ship designers who are now selling their designs all over the world, or shipyards that used to built small fishing vessel a few decades ago, now building the most sophisticated vessels in the offshore industry, with equipment developed and manufactured by local companies.They listened to the user of the ships and equipment they developed and corrected any mistakes based on input from them.
Is this bragging?? Well, maybe so, but prove me wrong.
BTW; I'm equally proud of what has been accomplished in Singapore in that same time span. From being a colonial backwater and transhipment port, to today being among the world's leading shipping centers.
In the 1960's and early 1970's there were three yards for ship repairs run by British and Japanese companies.In the early/mid-1970's American rig builders arrived and set up shop, building rigs from US designs (with drawings in US units, but built from Taiwanese steel in metric sizes) with all American machinery and equipment imported from the US.
Today Singapore is a leading rig building, conversion and repair centre, with their own proprietary designs and with subsidiary yards all over the world, incl. in the US.
I lived there during most of this time, watched this development and, in some small part, participated and contributed in it. I am - in equal parts - proud of my two "home country's" accomplishment.
Do I need to apologize for being a Norwegian and long time Singaporean resident? Well, I'm not and will not, no matter the amount of "encouragement" to do so I may get from certain quarters on this forum..
