Ship owners and operators using Vessel Insight can now improve performance and reporting – and reduce fuel and energy consumption – through the new KONGSBERG application Vessel Performance. Users will also achieve increased transparency and awareness about vessel emissions.

The Vessel Performance application collects contextualised data from the ship using KONGSBERG’s data infrastructure solution, Vessel Insight. The data is used to generate real-time value for users, with tools for reducing fuel consumption and unnecessary running of equipment, optimising equipment maintenance windows, and simplifying reporting according to up-to-date regulatory requirements.

“Aside from getting access to contextualised data from your vessels, one of the main benefits of using Vessel Insight is the immediate access to value-adding applications. Vessel Performance will increase the value for customers who are Vessel Insight users and help them reduce costs, utilise their assets better and stay compliant with new regulations,” says Vigleik Takle, SVP Maritime Digital Solutions at Kongsberg Digital.

Vessel Performance reduces system and information complexity, improves ship and office communication and operational awareness. All information from the application will be available in the cloud, on the vessel and onshore. The application provides details on fuel consumption and overall energy efficiency levels, benchmarked against historical performance, allowing the crew to exploit opportunities to minimise fuel usage and emissions. Vessel Performance is highly customisable and can be configured to meet specific customer needs across a wide range of vessels.

“KONGSBERG’s vast experience in vessel and equipment design places us in a leading position in the development of unified applications, delivered seamlessly via Vessel Insight,” says Bård Bjørløw, EVP Global Sales and Marketing at Kongsberg Maritime. “By making efficiency data easily available, Vessel Performance will facilitate vessel and fleet operations, enabling decisions in real time.”

Vessel Performance is immediately available for purchase and use in the Kognifai Marketplace.
