Norwegian Coastal Administration moves to data-driven energy efficiency

The Norwegian Coastal Administration has signed up to Kongsberg Digital’s data infrastructure subscription service, Vessel Insight, and the performance application Vessel Performance, as it seeks to optimise the efficiency and energy consumption of its fleet, and reduce its environmental impact.

“In the Norwegian Coastal Administration, we want to achieve the most efficient and environmentally friendly operation of our vessels,” said Kurt-Ivar Gram Franck, Technical Manager at the Norwegian Coastal Administration.

“With that goal in mind, optimising energy use and reducing emissions are two important factors. With Kongsberg Digital’s solution, this is what we achieve.”

The Norwegian Coastal Administration will install Vessel Insight on their first vessels during Q3 2021, using the vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure to capture and aggregate data and integrate it with performance optimisation applications.

“Digitalisation plays a critical role in transforming the maritime industry towards more sustainable, accurate and efficient operations,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, EVP Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital.

“The question is not whether there is an increased focus on digitalisation, but rather how fast we can enable the transformation towards a more data-driven and sustainable fleet. We are very happy to be working with the Norwegian Coastal Administration to help them achieve their goals.”
