Marine robotics and deep sea data acquisition company Ocean Infinity is to implement the ShipManager fleet management software from DNV across 17 new robotic ships and additional autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

Ocean Infinity will implement ShipManager’s modules for planned maintenance, procurement and business intelligence for its fleet of uncrewed, low-emission vessels which will be used for capturing ocean data.

 “As part of our efforts to secure the reliability of our fleet of robotic ships and AUVs, we were looking for a trusted partner that could deliver an integrated fleet management solution,“ said Andy Holt, Fleet Director, Ocean Infinity. “We know DNV has validation in the market and ShipManager is very intuitive and user-friendly. We were also excited to see the latest developments in user experience based on modern cloud solutions. Especially ShipManager Analyzer, with its advanced reporting capabilities, really delivers what we were looking for.”

The robotic ships in Ocean Infinity’s Armada fleet use low-emission technology and are equipped with sensors and navigational solutions that allow information to be gathered from the full range of water depths, whether for exploration, mapping or searching for wreckage. The marine robots use hybrid technology, cutting CO2 emissions. An Armada robotic vessel is said to emit up to 90% less CO2 than a conventional survey vessel.

Torsten Kappel, Head of Ship Product Line, Digital Solutions, DNV, said: "We are proud to be part of this exciting journey with Ocean Infinity. The utilisation of advanced technologies, as well as the focus on decarbonisation, fits perfectly with our own values at DNV.”

ShipManager is part of DNV’s maritime software portfolio for ship management and operations, installed on board approximately 7000 vessels worldwide. ShipManager provides modules for technical management, procurement, hull integrity management, dry docking, QHSE, crewing and business intelligence.
