Rem Offshore agrees data infrastructure deal for new offshore wind fleet

Rem Offshore has agreed a new contract with Kongsberg Digital for the implementation of the Vessel Insight data collection and integration platform on three new offshore wind vessels that are under construction.

The first vessel will be completed at Green Yard Kleven this month, while the other two are under construction at Vard, with completion in 2023 and 2024 respectively. Kongsberg Digital is currently in the process of installing Vessel Insight on the first vessel, Rem Energy, to be completed before the vessel leaves quay on November 29th.

Rem Offshore will use the new systems to collect data from the vessels and link it with different software packages to optimise operations. This will specifically include two applications from Kongsberg Maritime – Vessel Performance, used to automate reporting processes and support fuel consumption and emissions reduction; and eFSOG, a vessel decision support tool (DSS).

“The contract with Kongsberg Digital for our renewables fleet for data collection, vessel performance, and decision support gives us advantages for optimising our operation and reducing emissions,” said Ronny Pål Kvalsvik, Commercial & Technical Manager at Rem Offshore.

“Particularly the eFSOG/Decision support system will make a big step for us as a shipowner within the renewables sector for supporting our clients.”
