Høglund Marine Solutions along with DNV GL shake their hands and inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to boost and improve big data from ships. Specifically, through this partnership, both companies aim to take the maritime industry’s digitalization a step forward.
This MoU will also give Høglund the ability to advance and develop its automation systems, while DNV GL will give a boost to its classification services.
Although the shipping digital transformation in the maritime industry is spreading and many long sought-after advantages are expanding, there is still need for progress.
For many years, Høglund has pointed to the lack of consistency in ship specifications on how important data shall be made available for all stakeholders. By combining Høglund’s expertise in how to create, standardize and export data through a vessel’s integrated automation systems with DNV GL’s industry knowledge and independent role we can provide owners and operators with a more accurate overview of a ship’s performance and compliance with regulations.
…Børge Nova, CEO of Høglund Marine Solutions, noted.
With modern vessels becoming more complex, vast amounts of data are generating. Through a combination of high quality data along with seamless methods to access and analyze it, ship owners and operators have the chance to take better decisions, concerning the operating costs of the ship, its reliability, efficiency and safety.
Moreover, the maritime companies still have ways to pass ahead and take full advantage of all available performance data, by improving data collection, exportation and use, while giving a try to expertise and collaborate in different fields.
We are very excited to enter into this partnership with Høglund. Data is already the fuel that is driving the transformation of many other industries, often as a result of collaborations between different fields of expertise. For DNV GL, this cooperation represents an opportunity to harness the power of data to improve our classification services and to develop added services based on our independent role.
… Jon Rysst, Senior Vice President and Business Development Leader, of DNV GL concluded.
For the records, this is not the first time that DNV GL partners with Høglund. Several months ago, both companies have cooperated for the “ROMAS” (Remote Operation of Machinery and Automation Systems) project.
