Sperry Marine and DNV GL have announced the signing of a strategic cooperation agreement to support the sharing of vessel navigation data to support digital classification services.
The agreement will give DNV GL access to data from the ship’s bridge, which can be used to assess the condition of key equipment and better understand hardware and software performance.
“This agreement with DNV GL to provide access to Sperry Marine’s secure digital bridge platform will make our customers’ vessels more efficient while also improving their safety at sea,” said James Collett, Managing Director, Sperry Marine.
“DNV GL’s digital class services and extensive insight into maritime digital transformation will help to elevate the availability of navigation bridge data, ensuring that together we are positioned to deliver tangible operational efficiencies to customers.”
Sperry Marine’s SperrySphere digital platform offers a secure data link to the navigation bridge equipment and access to navigation applications, allowing the vessel’s operational technology to connect with onboard or shoreside systems for monitoring and control as well as optimisation and maintenance.
“We are very pleased to partner with Sperry Marine, who share our commitment to ensuring that digitalisation in shipping, with all its benefits, is able to advance in a safe and reliable manner,” said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO, DNV GL – Maritime.
“Data is a key future currency supplementing the safe and well-known practices on which shipping relies. In enabling customers to use data securely via the SperrySphere, we can access and offer more class services digitally, helping our customers to safely reduce costs and optimise operations.”
