Maran Gas Adopts KONGSBERG’s K-IMS Platform
Kongsberg Maritime announced that Maran Gas Maritime, one of the largest international ship-owning concerns, has signed a contract to roll out KM’s K-IMS Information Management System across its entire fleet. Already a long-term customer of KM, with this move Maran Gas are taking the relationship to a new level by integrating KM into its digitalisation strategy and cyber security. KM currently has secured more than 300 K-IMS contracts, with over 100 K-IMS agreements signed in the first half of 2021 alone and more in the pipeline.
The KONGSBERG Information Management System (K-IMS) is a suite of specialised applications hosted on the Kognifai open digital ecosystem. K-IMS is designed to allow continuous access to data, both on board and on shore, in an interactive, web-based solution, and to provide an efficient information flow. Applications, dashboards and tailor-made fleet and process automated viewing tools can subsequently be added to the K-IMS solution in each owner’s or third-party’s data replication and advisory cloud environment.
Most ships in the Maran Gas fleet already have K-IMS-ready hardware in place: any outstanding vessels have been taken into consideration in the overall rollout plan.
