Support Frames (MSF), modules and steel constructions in general.

More than 70 licences in 14 countries, of which 11 are in Norway. Through our pro- duction series we serve the entire Norwegian shipbuilding industry.


For 17 years the SRS has delivered system products, shipyard services and ship designs.

As early as 1972 we surprised the world by selling Norwegian software to the US government.
