Kongsberg Digital launches Industrial Work Surface

Kongsberg Digital has launched its new Industrial Work Surface technology, designed to centralise data from various digital systems and make it available for display and interaction within a single touchscreen system.

The unit integrates Kongsberg Digital’s existing technologies in digital twins, data management infrastructure, simulation, visualisation and machine learning to create a single interface for users to manage the lifespan of projects and assets, leveraging data and insights across the company’s applications and providing faster access to information.

“By providing industrial operators and workers with the tools needed to take critical decisions based on all data available, Kongsberg Digital’s Industrial Work Surface aims to redefine how businesses design, operate and maintain their assets,” said Shane McArdle, CEO at Kongsberg Digital.

“We empower businesses with digital workflows to drive performance as they respond to the energy transition towards net zero, enabling them to work smarter, safer and greener.”

“Our vision is to transform global industries by changing and shaping how people work. As an industrial software company, we understand the value of digitalising carbon-intensive industries by deploying new ways of working. The Industrial Work Surface will transform how these industries operate and help businesses unlock the full potential of digitalisation.”

Kongsberg says that the intuitive operational view should not require retraining from existing users and will streamline the number of software applications or vendors required to run operations via a single secure login.

Höegh Autoliners, announced as the first pilot customer for a new maritime digital twin service from Kongsberg Digital last year, is among those expecting to leverage the new technology,

“The digital overlay needs to address lots of new demands and opportunities, meaning everything from following the cargo from end-to-end, to managing and routing the vessels – but the most important thing is carbon accounting,” said Andreas Enger, CEO of Höegh Autoliners.

“With our new vessels, we have the opportunity to integrate connectivity by design, making the implementation of technology such as using digital twins possible. We are building dual-fuel vessels and we need to ensure that we can report and allocate the carbon reductions.”
