Areas of Expertise
Norconsult develops and distributes complete IT solutions for project, building, and facility management for both infrastructure and property. Their competitive advantage is to combine knowledge of disciplines, systems, and sector in user-friendly and integrated IT solutions.

In Norway, fishing, and oil and gas are the two biggest industries, and it is of national interest to maintain a sustainable exploitation of these resources. Both industries use the same offshore acreage, creating the potential for area conflicts. Sharing information between these industries is key, and Hexagon is providing the means by contributing to a web-based map solution developed by its partner Norconsult.
Norconsult, in collaboration with the non-profit organization EPIM and industry representatives, developed the map solution SAM-X to assist Norway’s fishing, oil, and seismic industries. SAM-X provides a platform for sharing efficient, timely and accurate activity information between important stakeholders, including authorities, fisheries, operators, suppliers, and seismic vendors. The result is more optimized and sustainable operations for these segments. Hexagon is delivering back-end support through its GeoMedia WebMap technology, which adds robust toolkits and interactive developer communities that allow EPIM to build effective custom web enterprise solutions.
