As part of the partnership, data scientists from Bahri Data and Veracity, DNV GL’s data platform, will lead efforts to drive innovative initiatives to bolster safety, security, quality, and compliance frameworks in the global fleet.

The experts are currently working on a prototype of a solution to make safety and quality decisions easier to perform from the perspective of an owner, a vessel operator, a charterer, a port authority operator, and a regulator, thus allowing all stakeholders to work together on safety and quality improvement.

An early prototype targeting owners/operators and charterers in a first instance will be unveiled on November 8 at the Bahri Data Forum in Dubai.

"These collaborations are remarkable enablers of growth for the sector, allowing global players to continuously innovate, stay ahead of industry trends, and implement best practices that will enable us to further improve our services and optimize performance,” said Anwar Siddiqui, President of Bahri Data.
