Wilhelmsen opts for more efficiency with DNV GL’s platform

In one of the first data sharing pilot projects on the new DNV GL’s Veracity industry platform, Wilhelmsen is testing a system to share ship compliance and condition data with port state authorities to reduce paper work and physical inspections when entering ports.

“As ships and their systems become more sophisticated, we have more equipment with sensors onboard that are generating and sharing data. If we can gather and systemize this data, this opens up a huge range of possibilities, for example predicting maintenance needs, optimizing vessel performance and safety, or, as we are now testing, making port entry procedures more smooth and efficient,” says Inge André Sandvik, Chief Digital Officer at The Wilhelmsen Group.

Currently, Wilhelmsen and DNV GL are testing a pilot project on the Veracity platform in cooperation with a major port state authority. Wilhelmsen has created a secure data container on Veracity, where they can collect compliance, condition and other relevant data on their vessels. Through the platform, they are then able to grant the PSA access to this data, reducing paper work and speeding port entry.

“The project is still in an early phase, but it shows how an open and secure data platform could reduce friction between stakeholders and create greater efficiencies,” says Mr. Sandvik.

In particular, Veracity allows Wilhelmsen to share and aggregate data in a secure manner, while facilitating connections between different industry players. Veracity also includes a marketplace, where platform users can access industrial applications and data analytics services that can help them make better use of their data. These services are provided not only by DNV GL, but by other qualified data, data analytics, software and digital solutions providers.
