DNV GL is launching a new industry data platform – “Veracity” – to help the maritime industry improve its profitability and explore new business models through digitalization.

The Veracity industry data platform is designed to help companies improve data quality and manage the ownership, security, sharing and use of data.

By creating frictionless connections between data owners and users, the platform will create new opportunities for improving ship performance and safety, while at the same time reducing operational costs.

“As a classification society it is vital for us to always be exploring ways we can help our industry to leverage new technologies to improve the safety and productivity of their assets,” said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO DNV GL – Maritime.

One area where the maritime industry can benefit from the Veracity data platform could be allowing DNV GL’s maritime customers to document compliance of main onboard machinery and systems through predictive analytics, removing the need for calendar based inspections.

DNV GL is developing the platform by working together with several industry leaders on big data projects in pursuit of reduced downtime, improved safety, predictive maintenance, performance forecasting, energy efficiency and real-time risk management.
