On 5 May Norway’s Ambassador to Singapore, Tormod Endresen, hosted a reception on the occasion of AWT (Applied Weather Technology) becoming StormGeo.
“In cooperation with our caterer, the guests were served Norwegian food, and the waffles we brought in from Sjømannskirken i Singapore was a big hit!” writes the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore.
AWT is now the shipping division of StormGeo. AWT was acquired by StormGeo in January 2014, and is now changing its name as part of the process of merging with its parent company.
