Hurtigruten Expeditions to deploy Kongsberg vessel-to-cloud infrastructure

Hurtigruten Expeditions (HX) is to implement Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight vessel-to-cloud infrastructure onboard the hybrid polar cruise ship Roald Amundsen, the companies report.

The system will be paired with Kongsberg’s Vessel Performance Offshore application for both onshore and onboard management of the vessel’s power, port charging, and electrical systems.

The technology will be used to gather information from the vessel’s sensors and data points onboard to provide analysis of a range of operational parameters for the crew and onshore teams. The infrastructure is set to be installed during the spring of 2024.

“HX is a frontrunner in using digital technology to optimise its operations and enhance sustainability in maritime operations,” said Ivonne Auerbach, Head of Customer Success at Kongsberg Digital.

“Deploying Vessel Insight and the Vessel Performance Offshore application aboard the MS Roald Amundsen is a testament to Kongsberg’s close history with HX and our shared commitment to pioneering sustainable maritime solutions.”
