New partnership formed in Norway to reduce fuel consumption and emissions for offshore ops

first_img“The partnership is focused on building a platform for intelligent efficiency, made possible only through the integration of operational, information and communication technologies,” said Eirik Mathiesen, Director of Energy Products Integration, 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 equitable and predictable operational performance.”“Going ‘smart’ is integral to maintaining our position as the number one OSV ship manager today and into the future, in a sustainable way,” said Lars Christian Larsen, Senior Project Manager for Energy Management, DOF.“Smart is not just deploying the right technologies. Developing our culture to focus even more on sustainable operations with minimal environmental impact will be as important as the technology we create with Kongsberg, SINTEF Ocean and NORCE. DOF’s maritime experience together with the collection of big data in an operationally logical way will ensure success.”“Information is power, and when that information relates directly to power consumption, it can revolutionize vessel operations, from onboard electrical load management to route optimization for passage by sea,” said Anders Valland, Research Manager, Maritime Energy Systems, SINTEF Ocean.“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.”Spotted a typo?

Norwegian offshore vessel owner 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.For illustration: One of DOF’s vessels. Author: Alan JamiesonEnabled through sponsorship and support from Innovation Norway, the new partnership between four of Norway’s maritime organizations will develop a sophisticated new Decision Support System (DSS) for offshore vessel operations, DOF said in a statement on Monday.“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 utilization and more sustainable fleet management,” the company explained.Highlighting the potential of the partnership to catalyze a tangible transformation, the multi-year project is backed with Innovation Norway’s largest funded offshore vessel, environmental technology project in 2018.DOF said that it will be a game-changer 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. ‘Going smart’ last_img read more

Liz Doyle’s 7-2 chance was one of a quartet who broke clear on the back straight, but only had Miami Present for company at the second last.

I thought he was a two-miler but he wasn’t settling or finishing the races off. “He didn’t do very much when he hit the front because he’s never been in front in his life! “He’s progressing as he was mentally all over the place and babyish.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
