Island Offshore fleet to implement common data platform

Island Offshore has agreed a deal to implement the Vessel Insight data collection infrastructure from Kongsberg Digital across its fleet of 26 offshore service vessels, one of the largest single contracts for Vessel Insight since the software system was launched in 2019.

Island Offshore will use the technology to collect all available data from its ships using a common platform, allowing it to be integrated with decision support tools for management and benchmarking of the vessels, comparing operational data across the fleet to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. It will also facilitate automation of reporting processes.

Four Island Offshore vessels are already connected to the Vessel Insight platform, linked with the Kongsberg Maritime Vessel Performance application and MARESS, a partner application from Yxney Maritime.

“By collecting all data on one common platform, we gain a correct and efficient starting point to analyse our operations and compare all the vessels in the fleet,” said Trond Hauge, Technical Manager, Island Offshore.

“In this way we can share experiences between the vessels and ensure that we operate as efficiently and safely as possible, while at the same time making our fleet even more sustainable by reducing fuel consumption. With increasing demands for reporting, moving from a manual to an automated reporting process will save us a lot of work.”
