DOF, Kongsberg, SINTEF Ocean and NORCE have formed a partnership to help reduce fuel consumption and emissions for complex offshore operations.
Supported by Innovation Norway, the partnership says it will develop a sophisticated new Decision Support System (DSS) for offshore vessel operations.
“This is an exciting project that strengthens Norway’s position as the world’s leading offshore and maritime innovator with focus on efficient and sustainable operations,” says Anders Valland, research manager, Maritime Energy Systems, SINTEF Ocean.
“Information is power – and when that information relates directly to power consumption, it can revolutionise vessel operations, from onboard electrical load management to route optimisation for passage by sea.”
“The partnership will build a platform for intelligent efficiency, through the integration of operational, information and communication technologies,” explains Eirik Mathiesen, director of energy products integration at Kongsberg Maritime.
“Encompassing IoT, new smart sensors on board will stream accurate data to the cloud-based DSS, where deep analysis with intuitive presentation and application will drive predictable operational performance.”
