06 Jun '17 Marorka 15 years old
Marorka is 15 years old today. Established on 6 June 2002, the company aimed to develop commercial products based on the PhD thesis Modelling of Fishing Vessel Operations for Energy System Optimization by Jon Agust Thorsteinsson, entrepreneur and founder of Marorka.
The company’s combined onshore-onboard energy management systems were first installed on local fishing vessels. Increasing interest from container, tanker and bulk carrier operators triggered rapid development over the next 15 years. Marorka systems are now used by many of the world’s foremost shipping organizations.
Today, Marorka is recognized as the leading global provider of data-driven energy management and operational performance solutions for the international maritime industry, with high-performance systems installed on more than 600 vessels. Our knowledge and expertise enables our customers to reduce fuel consumption, cut emissions and increase fleet performance leading to significant financial savings.
From our humble beginning as a three-man office in 2002, Marorka still has its headquarters in Reykjavik, Iceland, along with a worldwide network which includes offices in Germany, Singapore, and The United Arab Emirates.
