Robotic ships to use DNV ShipManager

Ocean Infinity, a marine robotics and deep-sea data acquisition company, is implementing DNV’s ShipManager software for use on 17 new robotic ships and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

The application will be used to manage planned maintenance, procurement and business intelligence for the fleet of uncrewed, low-emission ocean data capture vessels.

The robotic ships in Ocean Infinity’s Armada fleet use low-emission systems and are equipped with sensors and navigational technologies to collect information from shallow or deep waters for exploration, mapping or searching for wreckages.

The marine robots use hybrid technology that emits up to 90% less CO2 than a conventional survey vessel, the company says.

“As part of our efforts to secure the reliability of our fleet of robotic ships and AUVs, we were looking for a trusted partner that could deliver an integrated fleet management solution,” notes Andy Holt, Fleet Director, Ocean Infinity.

“We know DNV has validation in the market and ShipManager is very intuitive and user-friendly. We were also excited to see the latest developments in user experience based on modern cloud solutions. Especially ShipManager Analyzer, with its advanced reporting capabilities, really delivers what we were looking for.”
