SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eMARINE Global, Inc. (OTC: EMRN), a leading provider of information and communications technology for the maritime industry, is pleased to announce it secured a three-year contract with Hyundai Global Service Co., Ltd., a spin-off of Hyundai Heavy Industries, to supply the Company’s Marine Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform for more than 1,000 ships now in operation at sea.
“This is another major win for eMarine Global and our role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” stated Ung Gyu Kim, Chairman and CEO. “Having our innovative and proprietary technology retrofitted into more than 1,000 vessels currently in operation, places us in an ideal position for long-term success and market leadership.”
