REM OFFSHORE SELECTS KONGSBERG DIGITAL FOR DATA COLLECTION

Thursday, November 18, 2021 

Kongsberg Digital has signed a contract with Rem Offshore for the roll-out of Vessel Insight on three new offshore wind vessels that are under construction.

The first vessel will be completed at Green Yard Kleven in November, while the other two are under construction at Vard, with completion in 2023 and 2024, respectively.

By installing the infrastructure service Vessel Insight, Rem Offshore will collect data from the vessels and enable use of applications to optimise operations. An important part of the delivery is two applications from Kongsberg Maritime. Vessel Performance supports fuel consumption and emissions reduction, as well as automate reporting processes and eFSOG an advanced decision support tools (DSS). Kongsberg Digital is in the process of installing Vessel Insight on the first vessel, REM Energy, with this equipment, and the process will be finalised before the vessel leaves quay.

Andreas Jagtøyen, EVP Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital, said: “We are very happy to have entered into this contract with Rem Offshore. By installing Vessel Insight on newbuilds before they leave dock for the first time, the shipping companies will benefit by being able to use the data gathered to optimise their operations faster than what has been the norm up until now.”

Ronny Pål Kvalsvik, Commercial and Technical Manager, Rem Offshore, said: “The Contract with Kongsberg Digital for our renewables fleet for data collection, vessel performance and decision support gives us advantages for optimising our operation & reduce emissions. Particularly the eFSOG/Decision support system will make a big step for us as a ship owner within the renewables sector for supporting our clients.”
