During Nor-Shipping this week, Kongsberg will reveil Vessel Insight, a subscription-based service to address the key challenges for digital adoption in the maritime industry. Vessel Insight’s data infrastructure aspires to help ship owners, managers and operators unlock the value of their data.
DNV GL signed a memorandum of understanding with Kongsberg aiming to boosting digitalization in the shipping industry and improve customer benefit and ease. As there’s an increasing number of providers offering digital solutions, ship owners could gain many benefits from data infrastructure standardization and access to business ecosystems connecting all relevant digital solutions or services.
Kongsberg Maritime is part of a new collaboration scheme, along with DOF, SINTEF Ocean and NORCE, aiming to decrease fuel consumption and GHG emissions for complex offshore operations, while also streamlining fleet-wide maintenance.
Kongsberg Digital has signed a contract to deliver two new K-Sim Full Mission Bridge simulators at the Royal Australian Navy’s HMAS Watson Bridge Simulator Facility in Watsons Bay, Sydney, Australia. The project is added to Kongsberg’s service delivery contracts with the RAN, which includes multiple shiphandling and engine room simulators delivered at training facilities across the country.
At the first SAFETY4SEA Conference in London, Leif Pentti Halvorsen, VP Products, Kongsberg Digital, explained how a firefighting simulator can become an advanced tool to increase the realism in training to realistically conduct practical exercises to demonstrate and assess competence that is described in the STCW.
Kongsberg Maritime conducted a a tailored DP (dynamic positioning) emergency scenario training course for SAIPEM’s employees at the Kongsberg Maritime training centre in Kongsberg, Norway. SAIPEM decided to put all their pertinent crews through the course. Overall the series consists of ten courses.
Kongsberg Digital and GasLog inked an agreement for Kongsberg to deliver an LNG simulator package designed to enhance safety and operational training for GasLog’s crews. The simulators will be installed in GasLog’s Technical Management HQ in Piraeus, Greece.
Kongsberg Digital launched a new digital twin, after a successful feasibility study with Equinor. The new twin is a virtual model of unmanned production facilities for oil and gas and it allows users onshore to explore planned or existing assets offshore. The digital twin can also improve design quality and processes.
Kongsberg Digital launched a 3D virtual application for its K-Sim Cargo simulator. The system generates visualization for operational training on important areas of the cargo deck, enabling training centres to deliver safer cargo transfer operations. The 3D virtual model is based on a customized simulation model of a VLCC, M/T “Kiho”.
The unmanned RALamander fireboat aims to keep marine firefighting professionals out of harm’s way. Fires involving containers, petrochemicals, shore-side structures or vessels can be dealt with more quickly in situations where toxic smoke or explosion risk may obstruct manned vessels from responding effectively.
