Kongsberg and DNV GL have signed an agreement to share data. Customers of Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight, a cloud-based, vessel-specific system providing fleet overviews, dashboards and data analysis tools, will be able to share their data for use in the classification society’s digital class and assurance services.
The aim of the cooperation is to make class and assurance services faster, cheaper and less complex by working together on new digital solutions, Kongsberg and DNV GL said in a statement. The Norwegian company’s data infrastructure system, Vessel Insight, will be used to collect and transfer data from ships to DNV GL, enabling the classification society to perform digital class and assurance services.
Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, DNV GL Maritime CEO, explained: “Currently, most class inspections require the surveyors to be on board the ships. However, we can now perform some surveys by analysing digitally obtained data on shore. 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.”
