KONGSBERG’s Vessel Insight Gains DNV GL Acceptance
were the critical parameters in a recently completed Technical Qualification for Vessel Insight.
Digitalization is on the cusp of transforming the maritime industry, enabling operators to increase efficiency, safety and address new and stricter environmental standards. The first step operators need to address is gaining access to quality data from the vessels. Each ship represents a unique configuration, and aspects such as poor or no connectivity and various vendor systems onboard renders standardization challenging. KONGSBERG identified this industry challenge and launched Vessel Insight as a subscription-based cost-efficient service for operators to start standardizing their data collection and contextualization, leveraging the company’s long history as a system integrator, and a leading provider of various automation systems, information management systems and as a system integrator. Now, the novel technology behind Vessel Insight has been qualified by DNV GL through their Technical Qualification program.
A secure and reliable data infrastructure plays a critical role in enabling the digitalization of the maritime industry. The safety of crew and vessel as well as the confidentiality, integrity and availability of vessel data are key requirements for creating value with digital solutions. The systematic approach used by DNV-GL as part of the Technical Qualification provides evidence that Vessel Insight meets these requirements
Following the Technical Qualification process in which safety and cybersecurity were the critical parameters, DNV GL is of the opinion that the Vessel Insight functions within specified operational limits with an acceptable level of confidence.
