Trip to Egersund

Simon Salter (Chief Executive) and members of the CherSoft team were in Egersund, Norway this week visiting Jeppesen as the team look to broaden partnerships with commercial hydrographical companies. CherSoft originally met Egil Aarstad of Jeppesen in South Africa at Hydro 09 and they have been working together closely to identify new business development areas.

Simon was very happy with the visit, saying “The two companies are very complementary with solutions for the global hydrographic community and this should enable a very close working relationship for the future. We are especially focussed on our tidal products and solutions that are already gaining a wide audience in Europe”

Egersund is situated in a beautiful part of the world about one hour’s drive south from Stavanger. Frozen lakes, snow covered roads and rock strewn hills were all brilliantly lit by the arctic sun which, although bright, managed to impart no warmth at all. However it did provide a fantastic backdrop for our meeting with Jeppesen and we spent the whole day at their well appointed (and warm) offices which look out over the fjord. Many thanks to the Jeppesen team whose hospitality and interest certainly shone throughout the day.
