These tools include Smart Vessel Optimiser, a platform that uses vessel data to optimise fleet performance by benchmarking ship performance, predicting and optimising asset availability, performing emission reporting, and managing multiple facets of operational efficiency.
Vessels and fleets benefit from real-time insights when they are able to use deep sea sailing time to troubleshoot problems, but these insights and interventions are not possible without satellite connectivity. Unlocking already available data sources on a vessel can translate to information that helps maritime companies optimise their operations. By leveraging advanced satellite technology, maritime IoT and service companies can utilise real-time data feeds from vessels and help operators make improvements on every vessel in the fleet
“Smart Vessel Optimiser’s plug-and-play architecture for data analytics can be easily integrated with KVH Watch connectivity and we expect our customers will greatly benefit from our partnership with KVH,” said Bram van den Boom, managing partner of TechBinder. “Today, customers increasingly want a real-time visual of their vessels’ key performance indicators, so they need satellite communications as vessels are not within LTE reach all the time.”
“With solutions such as Smart Vessel Optimiser, TechBinder is devoted to helping maritime companies optimise their operations and we are pleased to be able to provide the connectivity that enables real-time data flow and insights,” commented Sven Brooks, senior director of IoT business development for KVH. “KVH Watch will enable TechBinder’s customers to engage in remote expert interventions, allowing technical troubleshooting and maintenance work to be carried out at deep sea.”
