Kongsberg Digital is proud to announce that it has signed a contract to deliver its Vessel Insight infrastructure solution to the entire Island Offshore fleet of 26 highly advanced offshore vessels. This is one of the largest contracts for Vessel Insight since the software solution was launched in 2019.
By installing the Vessel Insight infrastructure, Island Offshore will collect all data from its fleet on one common platform. The data collected will enable the company to use advanced decision support tools and benchmark its vessels by comparing operational data from all vessels to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as automate the reporting processes.
We are very pleased to contribute to further strengthening KONGSBERG’s collaboration with Island Offshore. We look forward to working closely with Island Offshore to deliver and further develop solutions that can help give them a competitive advantage in the market, as well as help them achieve their goals for safety, efficiency and sustainability, says Andreas Jagtoyen, Executive Vice President of Digital Ocean at Kongsberg Digital.
Four vessels in the fleet are already connected to the Vessel Insight platform, and Kongsberg Digital is continuously working on installation on the remaining vessels in the fleet. For the first vessels, Island Offshore has already used the Vessel Performance application from Kongsberg Maritime and the partner application Yxney Maritimes MARESS, which is available in Vessel Insight's Maritime Ecosystem. This has in a short time led to the four vessels now going from manual to automated reporting.
By collecting all data on one common platform, we get a correct and efficient starting point to analyze our operations and compare all our vessels in the fleet. In this way, we can share experiences between the vessels and ensure that we operate as efficiently and safely as possible. Our fleet will be even more sustainable by reducing fuel consumption and thus the attractiveness in the market will increase. With increasing demands for reporting, going from a manual to an automated reporting process will save us a lot of work, says Trond Hauge, Technical Manager, Island Offshore.
