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.
