Kongsberg Digital have signed a contract with Marinvest, a private ship management company based in Sweden, to install Vessel Insight on five of its fleet of 10 oil and chemical tankers.

About Vessel insight

Vessel Insight provides vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure, capturing and aggregating quality data in a cost effective and secure way for vessels and fleets. By providing instant and easy access to critical data from all data points on a vessel through one common infrastructure, the service reduces the complexity of data gathering from ships.  

Issues presented by having several vendor systems onboard, such as price and lack of data for contextualization to gain optimal insight into processes, is thereby eliminated. In addition, Vessel Insight subscribers gain access to the Kognifai Marketplace, where they can download top-ranked software applications, already integrated with Vessel Insight.

How Kongsberg help Marinevest?

Marinvest have been using Kongsberg Maritime’s Autochief 600 propulsion control system for five years, leveraging its Fuel and Speed Pilot functions to aid fuel and speed optimization. Vessel Insight, which builds on KONGSBERG’s long-standing history as a system integrator and leading provider of automation and information management systems, will work in tandem with the Fuel and Speed Pilot applications to facilitate vessel performance optimization by measuring emissions that are not currently monitored. 

This integrated approach – enabled by Vessel Insight – is expected to deliver significant savings, in addition to giving Marinvest a common infrastructure for all critical data signals and making them ‘digital-ready’ for integration with future software applications.

Contract

The contract between Kongsberg Digital and Marinvest was signed on February 10th, 2021, and Vessel Insight is expected to be installed on all five vessels by September 2021.

“To have intimate knowledge of the performance of our ships, over a wide range of speeds and conditions, lays a solid foundation for efficient day to day operations,” says Fredrik Stubner, Director Ship Management, Marinvest. “Marinvest has in the past conducted several speed and consumption related projects which has resulted in our fleet consistently improving and staying competitive, irrespective of market conditions and bunker prices. We believe that our new agreement with KONGSBERG will help us further improve our performance, and we look forward to this collaboration.”
