DNV acquiring the software company Synergi Solutions

DNV has acquired Synergi Solutions and enlarges its present software portfolio extensively together with 30 new employees. “We are now able to provide the most complete set of risk based software for operational integrity management and asset integrity to the energy, maritime and healthcare industries,” says Are Føllesdal Tjønn, managing director at DNV’s software house.

Being a leading provider of asset integrity software for the energy and maritime industries, DNV is now extending its portfolio to include risk based software for operational risk management. Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (QHSE) is growing increasingly complex in many industries, and recognised systems for managing these risks are vital. DNV now looks forward to serving its global customers with the most complete interface for asset and QHSE integrity management systems.

Based in Stavanger, Norway, Synergi Solutions’ software is available in 20 languages and used in 150 countries by 500 000 users. Existing Synergi customers, as well as new customers, will benefit from DNV’s global presence and close relationship with companies in the energy, maritime and health industries.

Through the acquisition, 30 new employees will be joining DNV’s software house. “Both support and sales activities will be managed from our new combined unit,” says Føllesdal Tjønn. “We aim to have especially strong growth in China, Korea, Singapore, Middle East, South America, and with further expansion in North America.”
