Kongsberg Digital has announced that the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) has taken the next step in its digitalisation journey by signing up to Kongsberg Digital’s data infrastructure subscription service, Vessel Insight, and the performance application Vessel Performance.
The NCA is a national agency for coastal management, maritime safety and preparedness against acute pollution. It is looking for digital tools to make its operations more data driven. “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.”
Kongsberg Digital’s data infrastructure and subscription-based service, Vessel Insight is claimed to give maritime operators a low-threshold, viable way to start their digitalisation journey. The vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure 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.
“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,” said Kurt-Ivar Gram Franck, Technical Manager in the Norwegian Coastal Administration.
The NCA will install Vessel Insight on their first vessels during Q3 2021.
