DNV GL and ABB have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to accelerate digitalisation in the maritime industry. The agreement was signed remotely by DNV GL – Maritime CEO Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen and ABB Marine & Ports managing director Juha Koskela in an online ceremony.

The MOU will see ABB and DNV GL work together on a “Digitalisation Roadmap”, to examine how the maritime industry can benefit from the greater availability of data, interconnectivity of systems, data analysis, and new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.

“The COVID-19 crisis has made us find a new way to carry out this signing, and even if we couldn’t meet in person, it is nevertheless a great pleasure to be working together – with ABB,” said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO of DNV GL – Maritime. “And the crisis has the potential to trigger a lot of innovation and new ideas throughout the maritime world – leading to a renaissance for the whole industry. At DNV GL, digitalisation has driven many of the new services and processes we have been working on to help our customers and improve our service delivery. Working together with ABB on this trend can help us explore its potential across the whole industry.”

“Today, electric, digital and connected technologies are driving innovation in the marine industry at an unprecedented pace,” said Juha Koskela, Managing Director, ABB Marine & Ports. “Collaborating with DNV GL on the next steps in shipping’s digital journey, we look forward to opening up new opportunities for customers and empowering them to achieve increased gains in safety, efficiency and sustainability through digitalisation.”

A planned series of workshops will launch the development of the Roadmap and see ABB and DNV GL cooperate to unlock the benefits of new digital technologies and data analytics, as well as goals and standards, that can help to develop and enhance new and existing products and services.
