Seamless and secure digital sailing

Email used to be impossible on ships. Now, it's indispensable. 

The digital transformation at sea is happening at large toward a new era of smartness. We’ve been part of the voyage for decades already, and continue to drive it towards a fully digitalized horizon.

But to reach that horizon safely, there are reefs to conquer: Cyber security, infrastructure, and data quality.

That's what we're here for.

The Globetech History

It all started on a taxi 
boat in Singapore

Back in 1998, one of the four yet-to-be Globetech founders installed his first laptop on a vessel – to raised eyebrows from its captain. He was an IT man on a ship. A strange sight.

A few years later, our founders realized the magnitude of digitalizing the maritime industry, and that it required around-the-clock focus, dedication, and support.

The inception came in 2010, on a taxi boat in Singapore, when our the founders decided to use that insight to create something of their own. Globetech was born the next year.

A decade and a half later, we continue to supply and support vessels with state-of-the-art IT equipment tailored for their respective maritime operations. 

We've not only witnessed the technological revolution at sea for the past twenty-some years. We've lived it. And we'll keep living it for the next twenty and beyond.

Company Highlights

The Globetech Milestones

  • 2011

    Globetech is born

    A company dedicated to maritime ICT excellence, Globetech saw the light of day in 2011.

    Our first assignment

    Globetech's first mission took us to Curacao, where we installed IT on JOIDES Resolution, a renowned science vessel sailing under the International Ocean Discovery Program today.

    Our first client

    2011 also marks the beginning of our first strategic partnership, with Siem Offshore signing up for tailored ICT solutions and secure connectivity. Siem remains a valued client to this day.

  • 2013

    Our first new colleague

    Two years from our establishment, it was time for our staff to expand beyond the founders. We hired our first specialist to continue delivering world-class ICT at sea.

  • 2014

    It's time for a child

    The need for our services expanded beyond the seven seas. Rather than wavering from our specialized course, we started a daughter company (Osselle) supplying and supporting IT for land-based clients. Globetech's sharp focus on maritime and offshore operations continued.

    What about the data?

    To continue to be able support vessels with reliable services, we invested in a maritime communications data center. The infrastructure still allows us to secure vast quantities of data for vessels roaming the seas.

  • 2015

    "Gaselle" company of the year

    Every year, renowned Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv nominate companies accelerating in growth and innovation to the Gaselle Award. We were on the list for 2015.

  • 2017

    A new fleet to the fold

    Having already secured several large vessels on contract, 2017 marked the year where we signed an agreement to support all of Utkilen's 24 chemical tankers. This became our largest supported fleet thus far.

  • 2019

    Employee number 10

    Globetech's crew continued to grow. In 2019, we welcomed our tenth talent to continue our adventure.

  • 2021

    Membership in Norma Cyber

    Norma Cyber, a Norwegian maritime organization for battling cyber security threats, was established in 2021. We didn't hesitate to sign up and join forces for safer maritime operations.

The Globetech Impact

Our global responsibility is crystal clear: efficient and secure maritime operations. The future is connected, and we're proud to contribute to its enablement.
