Kongsberg's ship scanning technology, known as Vessel Insight, will be part of a fleet of more than 100 vessels in the coming years, according to the company's announcement last Wednesday (04/05). And although the company did not disclose the shipowner with which the partnership was made, she celebrated the adoption of further modernization in the naval industry segment and the importance of this use within this sector.
Kongsberg is a world reference in the search for digitalization and the adoption of new technologies in the naval industry and in the offshore sector. Now, the company has announced a closed partnership with an undisclosed shipowner for the use of its Vessel Insight technology in a fleet of more than 100 ships. In this way, vessels will benefit from the benefits of using this type of technology and will achieve much more efficiency in their operations.
Kongsberg's Vessel Insight technology builds on SaaS, which provides ship-to-cloud data infrastructure by capturing and aggregating quality data cost-effectively and securely. Thus, the solution gives shipowners much more control over the operations carried out with the fleet of ships. And among the benefits offered by the company's technology are instant and easy access to the fleet overview, vessel-specific dashboards and data analysis tools, essential for the best operation of these vessels.
Although the company has not yet disclosed the owner with which it closed the contract, Kongsberg said that the company has a large presence in the naval industry in the production of large vessels. Thus, the new fleet of more than 100 ships will be able to use Vessel Insight to ensure more operational safety, transport efficiency and much more agility in activities. The company also highlighted how this agreement serves as a reference for the naval industry to continue investing in the digitalization of its processes and to be able to use Kongsberg technologies in this trajectory,
In addition to announcing the closed partnership with the international shipowner, Kongsberg made a point of highlighting the relevance of its technology not only for this fleet of ships, but also for the entire naval industry. Thus, Vessel Insight ensures a greater boost in sustainability within the maritime transport sector by providing companies with diverse information from the analysis of operational data of the vessel.
In addition, the technology also contributes to a more secure control of cargo transport reports and makes the entire logistics chain even more efficient. Vessel Insight's final point for the shipping industry is the possibility of improving operations, since the technology also points out the main deficits within the fleet of ships.
And finally, Andreas Jagtøyen, Senior Vice President Digital Ocean at Kongsberg Digital, commented: “We are now seeing an industry shift for ship owners increasingly eager to digitize entire fleets as data utilization is a key important for a greener maritime sector. This contract is solid proof of how Kongsberg Digital's technologies, including Vessel Insight, will be an important contributor to making the industry more sustainable.”
