Høglund and DNV GL team up on ship performance software

Høglund Marine Solutions and Veracity by DNV GL have agreed to explore how they can combine Høglund’s ship performance monitoring software with Veracity’s platform architecture and eco-system to ‘help shipowners accelerate their digital initiatives’.

In a statement issued yesterday (8 October), Høglund’s President Børge Nogva  said: ‘We are excited by this cooperation with DNV GL, as we believe in the power of data to enhance vessel performance and make well-founded decisions for future operations.

‘By combining Høglund’s expertise in how to create, standardise and export data through a vessel’s integrated automation systems with DNV GL’s industry knowledge and independent role we can provide owners and operators with a more accurate overview of a ship’s performance in compliance with regulations.’

Barry Authers, Partner Director at Veracity, added: ’ We are pleased to announce the partnership with Høglund. Their competence in capturing data from onboard systems, their existing footprint on more than 500 vessels and their vast amount of maritime data are a perfect fit for Veracity’s growing ecosystem. It will also support DNV GL Maritime in their ambitions to apply digital information in the future offering of independent verification services.

‘In addition, Høglund’s commitment to creating smarter, cleaner, more efficient ships, while protecting the environment for future generations fits very well with the values we have at Veracity and DNV GL.’
