Specifically, this collaboration will provide a sophisticated new Decision Support System (DSS) for offshore vessel operations.

In addition, the new tool will be the basis for DOF to simplify operational complexity with objective measurement, ultimately enabling optimal utilisation and more sustainable fleet management.

It will affect how marine operational decisions are supported by providing more accurate, timely and easily consumable information to decision makers; from the vessel’s Chief Engineer to the Chief Operation Officer based shore-side.

As Eirik Mathiesen, Director of Energy Products Integration, Kongsberg Maritime commented

The partnership is focused on building a platform for intelligent efficiency, made possible only through the integration of operational, information and communication technologies.

Concluding, in light of the project, Anders Valland, Research Manager, Maritime Energy Systems, SINTEF Ocean stated

This is an exciting project that strengthens Norway’s position as the world’s leading offshore and maritime innovator with focus on efficient and sustainable operations.
