ABS launches data collection and aggregation platform

Classification society ABS has launched My Digital Fleet, a digital platform which aims to connect multiple disparate vessel data siloes, including third party sources, for display and analysis within a single web application.

ABS says that the system will provide real-time alerts and online access allowing users to monitor an asset’s performance in terms of regulatory compliance, fuel efficiency, structural and mechanical integrity, or analysis in the context of any other system the user chooses to integrate through the platform.

The society notes that My Digital Fleet can also be configured to interface directly with vessel operators’ own systems, so users won’t be required to replace their existing infrastructure

“Digitalisation is the key enabler for asset management, sustainability and regulatory compliance strategies. Yet data silos and disparate systems have, until now, prevented owners and operators from realising the safety and operational potential of their data,” said Christopher Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO.

“The ABS My Digital Fleet web-based platform aggregates these data sources into one centralised online environment and derives valuable insights by leveraging emerging technology such as artificial intelligence.”

“It’s fast, scalable and highly configurable to a user’s business and fleet needs. It represents the next phase of our commitment to delivering the safety, environmental and economic benefits of digitalisation for the industry.”
