The Administration will use Kongsberg Digital’s services to enhance safe navigation and better environmental awareness through data driven operations.
Vessel Insight is a vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure that ensures customers can capture and aggregate quality data from their fleet. This data will be used to run applications tailored to various needs and goals, all available in KONGSBERG’s application marketplace. The marketplace hosts KONGSBERG, OEM and third party developed applications.
“Digitalisation plays a critical role in transforming the maritime industry towards more sustainable, accurate and efficient operations,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, EVP Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital. “The question is not whether there is an increased focus on digitalisation, but rather how fast we can enable the transformation towards a more data-driven and sustainable fleet. We are very happy to be working with the Norwegian Coastal Administration to help them achieve their goals.”
“In the Norwegian Coastal Administration, we want to achieve the most efficient and environmentally friendly operation of our vessels. With that goal in mind, optimising energy use and reducing emissions are two important factors. With Kongsberg Digital’s solution, this is what we achieve,” commented Kurt-Ivar Gram Franck, technical manager in the Norwegian Coastal Administration.
The Norwegian Coastal Administration will install Vessel Insight on its first vessels during Q3 2021.
