DNV GL and Kongsberg have signed a memorandum of understanding at Norshipping with the ambition to help bring about digitalization of the maritime industry.

“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,” said Geir Håøy, President and CEO of Kongsberg.

“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,” said Remi Eriksen, Group President and CEO, DNV GL.

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 subscription-based service which enables customers to cost efficiently capture and aggregate quality data from their assets, and securely transfer them to the cloud.
