Danelec Marine (Danelec) and Veracity by DNV GL (Veracity) have signed a pilot agreement to enable new maritime use-cases; combining the strengths of DanelecConnect’s onboard data capture capabilities and Veracity’s eco-system and platform architecture.
Danelec produces Voyage Data Recorders, Electronic Chart Display, Information Systems and ship-2-shore data solutions. By running their data over Veracity’s independent data platform, using Veracity’s identity and company management technology, Danelec can offer their customers secure, efficient and easy acquisition and use of data.
Veracity supports the implementation of Danelec’s agnostic and cost-efficient IoT ship-2-shore solution ‘DanelecConnect’ on customers’ vessels. It makes essential data from Danelec or third party Virtual Data Rooms (VDRs) and other data sources easily available to stakeholders.
Casper Jensen, CEO, Danelec Marine said, “DanelecConnect taps into existing data infrastructure to create resilient IoT capabilities for customers looking to collect more data for diverse use cases with multiple stakeholders, such as vessel performance optimization, safety and voyage documentation, and remote VDR surveys.”
DanelecConnect already provides data to optimise route planning, vessel performance and fuel consumption for hundreds of ships. This is enabled by their Vessel Remote Server (VRS) solution and powered by low-cost hardware modules on board. Jensen continued, “Over 20 years of experience at the forefront of VDR technology has informed the development of DanelecConnect. We are confident that its balance of high performance and reliability, combined with lower capital and operational exposure, will help position us as a leader in the maritime data collection segment over the coming years.”
In May this year, Veracity announced the platform now supports ingest of data towards the maritime data standards; ISO19847 and ISO19848. Acknowledging the importance of standardized and contextualised data for efficiency and re-usability; Danelec became the first data provider on Veracity to standardise its data according to the ISO standard.
Managing Director of Veracity, Mikkel Skou, said, “The fact that Danelec has decided to standardise its data and make it available on Veracity, will facilitate for shipowners, managers and other data consumers to both acquire, use and re-use data across many different use-cases. This truly shows Danelec’s ambition to support digitalization in the maritime field. We are very glad to have them onboard Veracity and look forward to exploring how we together can accelerate digitalisation in the maritime industry.”
Barry Authers, Partner Director at Veracity adds: “Danelec’s digital ambition combined with their presence on board more than 6000 vessels makes a very good starting point for a platform collaboration.”
