Light Structures and DNV to develop digital twin services

DNV and Light Structures, a supplier of fibre optic condition monitoring systems, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on the development of new systems incorporating structural health monitoring and digital twin functionalities.

The deal aims to leverage structural integrity monitoring data acquired using Light Structures’ SENSFIB systems for marine and offshore projects.

Under the MoU, DNV and Light Structures plan to collaborate on areas including customer requested project and system design, modelling, hydrodynamic analysis, hybrid twin databases, interfacing, instrumentation, and installation and commissioning.

“Digitalisation in the maritime sector has streamlined our ability to widen the scope of applications that structural integrity data can benefit, so we are looking forward to exploring new workstreams and project implementations through our work with DNV,” said Niklas Hallgren, CEO, Light Structures.
