Kongsberg Digital has entered into two new separate partnerships for digital training and vessel analytics, with Mintra and Lab021 respectively.
The contract with Mintra will see Kongsberg’s K-Sim Connect simulation technology made available as a cloud-based subscription service for use with the Mintra Trainingportal, a learning and competency management system.
The K-Sim Connect subscription-based simulation library currently includes a range of training modules on disciplines such as engine room management, use of ECDIS and radar, cargo handling and route planning. Additional applications are currently in development and will be released later this year.
“It’s an exciting time to be optimising trainee seafarers’ skills, safety and competence during the ongoing digital transformation of the shipping industry, and our partnership with Kongsberg Digital will be key in giving instructors and students everywhere all the benefits of immersive, lifelike simulation training at their fingertips,” said Emmanolia Kolias, Sales Director, Marketplace, Mintra.
Kongsberg’s other new partnership, with Korean company Lab021, will see that company’s Vessellink shipping data analysis technology added to Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight service and made available within the Kognifai Marketplace.
Vessellink provides marine-specific data and analysis for the maritime sector, offering 24-hour intelligent monitoring to assist in managing compliance with environmental regulations.
“We are very excited and looking forward to providing Vessellink to the Korean and global market as an integrated part of Vessel Insight, and we truly hope that this will be an important milestone in achieving the ambitious mission of both companies,” said Sang Bong Lee, CEO, LAB021.
