Danish company Danelec Marine and Veracity by DNV GL have signed a pilot agreement to enable new maritime use-cases; combining DanelecConnect’s onboard data capture capabilities and Veracity’s eco-system and platform architecture.

Danelec manufactures maritime Voyage Data Recorders, ECDIS and ship-to-shore data solutions. By running its data over Veracity’s independent platform, using Veracity’s identity and company management technology, Danelec can offer customers secure, efficient and easy acquisition and use of data.

Veracity supports the implementation of Danelec’s agnostic and cost-efficient IoT ship-to-shore solution ‘DanelecConnect' on customers' vessels. It makes essential data from Danelec or third party Virtual Data Rooms (VDRs) and other data sources easily available.

Casper Jensen (pictured), CEO, Danelec Marine said: “DanelecConnect taps into existing data infrastructure to create resilient IoT capabilities for customers looking to collect more data for diverse use cases with multiple stakeholders, such as vessel performance optimisation, safety and voyage documentation, and remote VDR surveys.”

DanelecConnect provides data to optimise route planning, vessel performance and fuel consumption, enabled by the Vessel Remote Server (VRS) solution and powered by low-cost hardware modules on board.

Jensen said “Over 20 years of experience at the forefront of VDR technology has informed the development of DanelecConnect. We are confident that its balance of high performance and reliability, combined with lower capital and operational exposure, will help position us as a leader in the maritime data collection segment over the coming years.”

In May 2020, Veracity announced the platform now supports ingest of data towards the maritime data standards; ISO19847 and ISO19848. Acknowledging the importance of standardised and contextualised data for efficiency and re-usability; Danelec became the first data provider on Veracity to standardise its data according to the ISO standard.

MD Veracity, Mikkel Skou, said: “The fact that Danelec has decided to standardize its data and make it available on Veracity, will facilitate for shipowners, managers and other data consumers to both acquire, use and re-use data across many different use-cases. This truly shows Danelec’s ambition to support digitalisation in the maritime field. We are very glad to have them onboard Veracity and look forward to exploring how we together can accelerate digitalisation in the maritime industry.”

Barry Authers, Partner Director, Veracity said: “Danelec’s digital ambition combined with their presence on board more than 6000 vessels makes a very good starting point for a platform collaboration.”
