An agreement signed yesterday by Kongsberg and classification society DNV GL will enable customers of Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight data infrastructure solution to collect and transfer data from vessels to DNV GL, which will enable DNV GL to perform digital class and assurance services.
“Currently, most class inspections require the surveyors to be on board the ships. However, we can now perform some surveys by analyzing digitally obtained data on shore,” says Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO, DNV GL – Maritime. “By enabling customers to share their data via Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight, we can expand the amount of data we are able to access and offer even more class and assurance services digitally. This will help customers not only to reduce their costs, but streamline their daily operations.”
“We believe that broad maritime digitalization and the value generation for ship owners will be achieved much faster if expert vendors work together to solve industry challenges,” says Hege Skryseth, President, Kongsberg Digital and EVP Kongsberg. “By combining DNV GL’s unique expertise in digital class and assurance solutions and Kongsberg’s data infrastructure specifically developed for the maritime sector, we are putting together necessary pieces of a puzzle. Together, we want to help our customers see the full picture.”
