Island Offshore has signed a contract that will see Kongsberg Digital deliver its Vessel Insight infrastructure solution to its entire fleet of 26 offshore vessels.

“By installing the Vessel Insight infrastructure, we will collect all data from our fleet on one common platform,” says Island Offshore. “The data collected will enable us to use advanced decision support tools and benchmark our vessels by comparing operational data from all vessels to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as automate the reporting processes.”

Kongsberg Digital says the contract is one of the largest for Vessel Insight since the software solution was launched in 2019

“We are very pleased to contribute to further strengthening Kongsberg’s collaboration with Island Offshore. We look forward to working closely with Island Offshore to deliver and further develop solutions that can help give them a competitive advantage in the market, as well as help them achieve their goals for safety, efficiency and sustainability,” says Andreas Jagtøyen, executive vce president of digital ocean at Kongsberg Digital.

Four vessels in the fleet are already connected to the Vessel Insight platform, and Kongsberg Digital is now working on installation on the remaining vessels in the fleet.

For the first vessels Island Offshore has already used the Vessel Performance application from Kongsberg Maritime and the partner application Yxney Maritime’s MARESS, which is available in Vessel Insight’s Maritime Ecosystem. This has, in a short time, led to the four vessels now going from manual to automated reporting.

“By collecting all data on one common platform, we get a correct and efficient starting point to analyze our operations and compare all our vessels in the fleet. In this way we can share experiences between the vessels and ensure that we operate as efficiently and safely as possible,” says Island Offshore technical manager Trond Hauge. “Our fleet will be even more sustainable by reducing fuel consumption and thus the attractiveness in the market will increase. With increasing demands for reporting, going from a manual to an automated reporting process will save us a lot of work.”

Headquartered in Ulsteinvik, Norway, the Island Offshore Group is majority-owned by the Ulstein and Chouest families
