Kongsberg Digital (KDI) recently signed a fleet agreement to provide its vessel-to-cloud infrastructure, Vessel Insight to over 100 vessels. Signed with a large industrial shipowner in the tanker segment, the new contract is another major step towards digitalisation of the shipping industry.
“We are very proud to announce that we recently signed a major deal to digitalise a large industrial shipowner in the tanker segment, with a fleet agreement exceeding one hundred vessels. This is a good example of digitalisation as a crucial step on the journey towards greener, safer, and more efficient ship operations, where Kongsberg Digital’s products are paving the way to meet future needs of a sustainable maritime sector,” says Hege Skryseth, President of Kongsberg Digital.
Vessel Insight is a SaaS based solution that provides vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure capturing and aggregating quality data in a cost effective and secure way. The solution provides instant and easy access to fleet overview, vessel specific dashboards and data analysis tools. Through Kognifai Marketplace, ship owners have access to a large range of applications and services that can turn their data into business value.
One of the main goals of Vessel Insight is to drive sustainability in the shipping industry by providing actionable insight from analysis of operational vessel data. The consistent and standardised way of collecting data through Vessel Insight enables quality reporting, empowers transparency, and allows for in-depth analysis to optimise vessel and fleet performance.
“We are now seeing a shift in the industry to ship owners becoming more eager to digitalise entire fleets, as the utilisation of data holds an important key to a greener maritime industry. This contract is a solid proofing point of how Kongsberg Digital’s technologies, including Vessel Insight, will be an important contributor in making the industry more sustainable,” says Andreas Jagtøyen, SVP Digital Ocean in Kongsberg Digital.
