HiQ signs framework agreement with Swedish Coast Guard

HiQ has signed a four-year framework agreement with the Swedish Coast Guard, with an option to extend for an additional two years.

The agreement involves HiQ taking comprehensive responsibility for providing everything from project management to development and testing.

Sjöbasis is an information coordination system used to collect, process and develop relevant maritime information, all done within a single system and that is made available to public authorities that need it. In doing so, the system eliminates costly double-up work. Sjöbasis effectively coordinates the information and intelligence efforts within maritime monitoring.

"HiQ has been active in Karlskrona since 2004, and during our eight years in the region we have cemented our expertise and our fields of speciality. Naturally, this helped us to win the contract. There are many exciting customers in the area. For HiQ, this comprehensive project will see us draw on our expertise within operational control. We look forward to simplifying and streamlining the Coast Guard's management function even further," says Klas Nyström, Managing Director at HiQ Karlskrona.

The Coast Guard is responsible for maritime monitoring and rescue services. The Swedish Coast Guard is active along the entire coast of Sweden 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to rescue, assist and monitor, and to prevent crime.

"HiQ in Karlskrona has developed at a steady pace, and we are happy to see that our customer base is expanding to include new customers like the Swedish Coast Guard. We are incredibly proud of the great confidence the Coast Guard has shown in HiQ," adds President and CEO of HiQ, Lars Stugemo.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
