The move by Alfa Laval sees the company accelerating its digital business and provision of tools to help customers with decarbonization.

The deal is valued at NOK3.63m ($442,000) on a debt and cash free basis and is expected to be completed in Q2 of this year.

StormGeo has 2,200 customers globally in a variety of industries, including shipping, energy and onshore industries. The company will be part of Alfa Laval's marine business division.

“The acquisition of StormGeo will be a strong addition to our toolbox of solutions that help our customers address the decarbonisation challenge in the industry.
