DNV GL, Kongsberg in Digitalization MOU
DNV GL and Kongsberg have signed a memorandum of understanding with the ambition to help bring about digitalization of the maritime industry and greatly enhance customer benefit and ease.
In the maritime industry, digitalization and the use of data will have a huge impact. There are a great number of providers offering digital solutions to the maritime industry, and ship owners would benefit from data infrastructure standardization and access to business ecosystems connecting all relevant digital solutions or services. Kongsberg and DNV GL have decades of knowledge, competence and technology in the maritime sector, and are now joining forces to offer shipping customers digital solutions which will optimize performance and allowing them to have more secure and sustainable operations.
Kongsberg and DNV GL have developed complementary digital solutions through Kognifai and Veracity. Kognifai is tailor made for industrial digitalization with a particular focus on maritime industry. DNV GL’s Veracity is a market leading platform for digital assurance and class solutions. Bridging the two solutions will strengthen the quality of both infrastructures and enhance the number of value-adding solutions and services for customers while they stay in control of their data.
The DNV GL and Kongsberg partnership was announced the same week as Kongsberg launched their new data infrastructure solution for vessels, Vessel Insight. Vessel Insight is a cost-efficient subscription-based service which enables customers to cost efficiently capture and aggregate quality data from their assets, and securely transfer them to the cloud.
