Scorpio Group signs up for Sea IT´s BlueCORE solution

Dry bulk and tanker company Scorpio Group has confirmed a deal with Sea IT for its BlueCORE ICT solution, covering IT equipment purchasing and warehousing, onboard deployment and day to day maintenance.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} BlueCORE ICT solution provides day to day business monitoring of vessels’ ICT systems, including critical updates. The BlueCORE Concept is a fully managed ICT service 24/7 that is built to optimise business processes, reduce operational costs and to ensure maximum efficiency by utilising all available IT resources onboard.

Under the agreement with Scorpio Group, Sea IT has integrated a fuel optimisation system in the BlueCORE services. The installation is prepared for future system installations such as engine monitoring, scrubbers, and training programs. The infrastructure is open for future secure integrations of 3rd party products that are important for the Scorpio Group operations.

Together with IOActive, SEA IT has tested and quality validated the system based on cybersecurity. The system has also undergone extensive proof of concept onboard two of Scorpio's vessels to ensure that the solution offers all the functionality desired.

According to Kristian Ryberg, CEO of Sea IT, Scorpio Group has bought the entire BlueCORE cyber security solution and only small adjustments based on the original design have been made to adapt the solution to Scorpio's wishes.

“BlueCORE provides us with an advanced IT platform with real-time monitoring of all services and applications that is managed and maintained remotely within a Service Management Agreement framework. It supports the onboard crew user experience while enabling the faster introduction of new or updated services across our Fleet,” said Alasthair Saunders, Scorpio vessel IT service delivery service line lead.

“BlueCORE is a not only an evolution from our existing onboard IT infrastructure, it’s a change that involves all the Vessel IT service delivery process chain. I’m positively impressed by the attention to detail, the professionalism and the commitment that all Sea IT team is constantly demonstrating, giving me the confidence for a long-lasting partnership,” said Nicola Fainelli, Scorpio Group CIO.

“We are extremely proud to sign our largest contract ever with the professional and fast growing Scorpio Group,” said Kristian Ryberg CEO at Sea IT. “The project is in full operation and we expect to install in average 10 vessels per month during the coming 18 months.” {/mprestriction}
