In June we could proudly present our biggest Vessel Insight contract so far, as MSC, the world’s largest container line, chose Kongsberg Digital to digitalize their entire owned fleet consisting of approximately 500 vessels, including options.
Right before summer, Floatel International signed Vessel Insight for all their operational rigs. Their fleet consists of five semi-submersible accommodation and construction support vessels, and with Vessel Insight, the company is systematically working to reduce its emissions and optimize its operations.
The Kognifai Marketplace, our ecosystem of applications available for our Vessel Insight customers, continued to expand with partners and quality applications – all of them designed to meet operational needs and requirements. At the beginning of the year, IKM Instrutek and Lab021 joined forces with us to connect their services to Vessel Insight and Kognifai Marketplace.
As a result of the high activity level towards Nor-Shipping in April, Kongsberg Digital partnered with Optimarin, Metis Cyberspace Technology, ChordX, Anda-Olsen and Awake.AI to further expand the Kognifai Marketplace with apps for greener, safer, and more efficient operations.
Today, the Kognifai Marketplace ecosystem consists of over 40 partners.
We always look for ways to meet customers’ needs. During Nor-Shipping we launched Vessel Insight Access, a software solution provided by our Danish acquired company COACH Solutions. A solid offering that embraces digitization and ensures that customers can enjoy the benefits of Vessel Insight without needing additional hardware onboard.
In April, Kongsberg Digital was the very first vendor of vessel-to-cloud technology to receive the D-INF approval from DNV. This is an important milestone for Kongsberg Digital and acknowledgement of our intensive work and investments in cyber security and class validation audit and verification.
Taking the partnership even further, the partners decided to deepen the cooperation by signing a memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in June. The MOU aims to enhance DNV’s D-Inf rules and support greater uptake by the industry.
K-Sim is our extensive and unique maritime simulation digital platform offering a variety of simulation training packages for the education of students and crew.
In the last six months, Kongsberg Digital has entered several valuable partnerships. In March, Kongsberg Digital and the University of Plymouth partnered to provide offshore wind project teams and crews with facilities to verify, test and optimize the installation and maintenance of floating offshore wind turbines, a potentially game-changing project in a rapidly growing market.
In June, the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP), an already valued partner to Kongsberg Digital, signed a significant simulation contract to deliver a range of maritime simulators to a new and extensive Innovation Lab in the Philippines.
K-Sim Connect received the prestigious DOGA Award for Design and Architecture this spring. Kongsberg Digital and EGGS Design were given an award for demonstrating outstanding use of design and architecture.
In Kongsberg Digital we love utilizing real-time data. The SiteCom® ecosystem is our industrial work surface for well operations that offers real-time data aggregation and visualization solution for all phases of well construction and operation. With SiteCom, engineers and geologists can make decisions that mitigate operational risk, improve performance, and optimize drilling and well construction.
In May we launched our brand new SiteCom Go mobile app – an application that enable users to access real time drilling and well information at any time. It utilizes the power of SiteCom® Global Mnemonics to automatically integrate and show data from all vendors and latest information can be displayed for immediate overview of current situation. Users now have easy access to a complete list of wells and may receive active notifications of new developments in the wells.
Kognitwin is Kongsberg Digital’s digital twin Software-as-a-Service platform. It enables operators to integrate and contextualize data from their IT and OT systems and enable advanced process and flow simulation to drive higher degrees of asset performance and collaboration.
The year started with Kongsberg Digital joining The Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) on Wind Energy, called NorthWind. The aim is to contribute to the development of a Digital Twin Technology for offshore wind infrastructure.
In April we could proudly announce that after a successful delivery of Kognitwin® on two assets, one of the world’s largest energy corporations expanded their contract with Kongsberg Digital, adding four more assets. Shane McArdle, SVP Digital Energy in Kongsberg Digital, said that he sees a shift within the energy industry regarding digitalization, the use of data and digital twins.
