DOF, KONGSBERG, SINTEF Ocean and NORCE join forces to deliver ‘Intelligent Efficiency’ for offshore operations
DOF has formed a partnership with Kongsberg Maritime, SINTEF Ocean and NORCE, which aims to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions for complex offshore operations, while streamlining fleet-wide maintenance.
Enabled through sponsorship and support from Innovation Norway, the new partnership between four of Norway’s most established and advanced maritime organisations will develop a sophisticated new Decision Support System (DSS) for offshore vessel operations.
This new predictive, intelligent, and dynamic guidance tool will act as the foundation for DOF to simplify operational complexity with objective measurement, ultimately enabling optimal utilisation and more sustainable fleet management.
Highlighting the potential of the partnership to catalyse a tangible transformation, the multi-year project is backed with Innovation Norway’s largest funded offshore vessel, environmental technology project in 2018. It will be a gamechanger in how marine operational decisions are supported by providing more accurate, timely, and easily consumable information to decision makers; from the vessel’s Chief Engineer to the Chief Operation Officer based shore-side.
