Dorian to roll out Vessel Insight across LPG carrier fleet


Dorian LPG has agreed a new deal with Kongsberg Digital to install the Vessel Insight data management system across its fleet of 22 LPG carriers, consolidating collection of data from its vessels into one common infrastructure.

Dorian plans to collect all critical data from its entire VLGC (Very Large Gas Carrier) fleet within Vessel Insight to improve monitoring of the fleet’s assets and make its data more accessible to its chosen software providers.

The shipping company’s initial goal is to monitor and predict consumption and emissions data to plan for IMO 2023 regulations, which will require vessels to combine technical and operational approaches to reduce their carbon emissions. Dorian also aims to benchmark performance between vessel types in its fleet to identify potential areas of improvement.

“This contract emphasises the untapped potential and value of collecting data to analyse, predict and improve processes for vessels and fleets, especially given the current situation within the maritime industry, where gaining a competitive edge and decarbonising while meeting new regulations is key to survival and success,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, Executive Vice President Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital.

The contract between Kongsberg Digital and Dorian was signed on 4 March 2021, and Vessel Insight is expected to be installed on all 22 vessels in the upcoming months.
