The two have joined forces to offer shipping customers digital solutions aimed at optimising performance and making operations more secure and sustainable.
Specifically, Kongsberg and DNV GL will work with the former's Kognifai and the latter's Veracity solutions. The first has been developed for industrial digitalisation, with a particular focus put on the maritime sector, while the second is a market platform for digital assurance and class solutions.
"In DNV GL we will develop our class services and other technical assurance services through increased collection and processing of the digital information being made available. Transparency and collaboration on the data value chain is a big challenge. The fear of losing competitive advantage through sharing of insights offered by data keeps the data in silos. But sharing should be encouraged and this is part of the intention behind secure, well governed platforms like Veracity and Kognifai and the reason for collaborating to support the digital transformation of the maritime industry," Remi Eriksen, Group President and CEO, DNV GL, said.Geir Håøy, President and CEO, Kongsberg, added to this, "Kongsberg's Kognifai and DNV GL's Veracity will, combined, give customers access to platform capabilities and an ecosystem of value enhancing services. This partnership will significantly enhance our customers' opportunities for digitalization. Together we have 350 years of experience, we have deep domain knowledge, and with this partnership we will enhance customer value."
