At our K-Sim simulators, our students have broken equipment worth almost 180 million USD during the last 10 years. If we have prevented just 5% of these accidents from happening in real life, we still have saved Mærsk Supply Service millions of dollars.”

Vale transports iron ore in the most efficient vessels in the world, but we believe there are still further energy efficient gains to be captured to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.  Data analytics is key to measure the performance of the new technologies and make evidence-based strategic decisions. This pioneering project shows our commitment to supporting the shipping industry in fulfilling the ambitions of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).”

Rodrigo Bermelho

Shipping Technical Manager

Like us, our customers and partners focus on sustainability, electrifying their products, and decarbonizing their supply chains. Our fleet is one of the most environmentally friendly car carriers ever built. The additional insight and more rapid and cost-effective vessel management provided by Kongsberg Digital's digital twin will supercharge their environmental performance and enable future benefits faster. We already see benefits on trim optimization, but when we add the data around other facets of vessel operation, along with training and maintenance, we expect further benefits and savings to come thick and fast.”

Sebjørn Dahl

Chief Operations Officer
Höegh Autoliners

With Kongsberg Digital and the Vessel Insight data infrastructure we will be able to optimise our vessel operations to become more effective, sustainable, and safer. The maritime industry is facing strict regulatory requirements to cut emissions and become more sustainable, and we are therefore very pleased and proud to have secured this contract. This is an important step on the way towards a greener operation.”

Gianluigi De Maio

Manager of Fleet-Network-Terminal Efficiency

“Today, with more integrated and connected vessels and systems, and rapidly evolving digital technologies, we must be more agile, which makes broad cooperation more vital than ever. We highly value our work with Samsung and Kongsberg. Their openness, future-orientated focus and constructive approach enables us to develop standards that can help enable the whole industry to enhance data infrastructure, exchange and use.”

Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen

Meet Anders Bryhni, Vice President of Maritime Products at Kongsberg Digital. Anders leads Vessel Insight's product development from design through to development and testing. With a blend of industry expertise and product knowledge, he ensures that the company’s maritime solutions support decision-making and work processes within performance management, operational reporting, and technical operations for customers globally.


Vessel Insight helps shipping companies and ship owners unlock the value of their data. Lower fuel consumption, reduce operational expenses, and simplify collaboration onboard and on shore through digital technologies and easier access to high-quality data. Read more about Vessel Insight here.

Following the Tomorrow Show in Houston last month, we caught up with Anders to hear more about his thoughts on the future of work, digital transformation learnings and data quality.

At Kongsberg Digital, we have a strong focus on shaping the future of work. What does that mean from a maritime perspective?

Anders: Across the maritime sector – and actually, across most heavy-asset industries – the IT space is quite fragmented. That means there is both a need and an opportunity to fix this fragmentation. When we talk about shaping the future of work, one of our focus areas is figuring out how we can create solutions that build on a common foundation. For us, this common foundation is an Industrial Work Surface where work processes and collaboration happen in a single digital environment that has all the data from a customer’s vessels or facilities.

With this common foundation where integration happens on the data layer in the back end, we can build applications and use cases on the front end that increase the value of both data and technology to various roles in the industry. Going forward, we expect to see more development, more integrations at the front end, and more opportunities to create value for our clients and partners.

Vessel Insight is one of Kongsberg Digital’s more mature verticals. Are there any digital transformation success stories that can be shared both with the maritime industry and beyond to other verticals like oil and gas?

We are all here to create value for clients. The technical aspects are crucial – but beyond back-end technical things, it is essential to find good ways to get data and capabilities into the hands of users across the value chain. Without creating solutions designed to fit the work processes of users, value is just going to be created so much slower. And we need to solve client problems without creating new silos, bringing us back to the importance of a single place to find information, visualise data and execute end-to-end work processes.

A key pillar of Vessel Insight is building strong partnerships and client relationships, helping us solve use cases that apply for many users in maritime. The Industrial Work Surface is giving us a way to build on this success to support value chains covering several industries or verticals, creating new opportunities for integration and cross-vertical collaboration. For customers who want to play a role in advancing the energy transition and reap the benefits that technology like AI (Artificial Intelligence) has to offer, digitalising work processes across the whole value chain is the way forward.

What do customers want to see more of from Kongsberg Digital?

Customers want solutions that are industry-driven, ones that solve the challenges they face every day. That means we must design the right user experiences and support decisions with data. Therefore, we focus on data and more specifically, data quality. We work extensively on standardizing asset models of vessels to create a solid data foundation, and then we map the data and work from there with our customers to create applications.  

We also bring in industry-leading partners to give customers a marketplace where customers can find solutions to their problems, even those that we at Kongsberg Digital aren’t actively tackling right now. This way, we offer customers new ways of working and they can make decisions based on easy access to quality data through our APIs (Applications and programming interfaces).

Talking about data – can you tell us more about achieving data quality?

Data quality is a broad term, and of course, there are many answers to this depending on who you ask. For us, it starts with connectivity. We make sure that connectivity is as robust as possible and that datasets are complete.  

Any data that’s ingested needs to comply with standards. We have internal standards in our platforms, and map data to industry standards when required. For example, maintenance systems need to comply with regulations, and we work hard to ensure that the quality of data is fit for purpose. We also align data management strategies with our partners to ensure long-term success when developing our solutions and adding applications to our Vessel Insight Marketplace.

Anders, thank you for sharing your valuable insights. Before we wrap up, any parting words of wisdom for our readers?

Just get started. You don’t need the best data, the most modern fleet, or years of training to start seeing the value of technology for your operations. Bring us what you have and let’s see what we can do.
