The scope of the contract includes Kongsberg Digital’s data infrastructure service, called Vessel Insight, and the company’s Vessel Performance application being installed on MSC’s owned fleet.

MSC is expected to achieve transparency and enhance the utilisation of data through Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight vessel-to-Cloud data infrastructure.

By using Kognifai Marketplace applications as well, data can be collected and contextualised to lower emissions into the air by optimising voyages and cutting down fuel usage.

It also helps automate reporting processes, enabling stable connectivity to improve safety and crew welfare.

Kongsberg Digital president Hege Skryseth said: “We are very proud to announce this contract with MSC. As the world’s largest shipping container line, MSC is playing a key role in facilitating trade all over the globe, but also in setting the standard in making the industry more sustainable through digitalisation.

“With Vessel Insight, MSC can contextualise data created by their vessels through our vessel-to-Cloud infrastructure and use this to reduce emissions and optimise their entire fleet of container ships.”

Last month, Kongsberg Digital won a contract to digitalise more than 100 vessels.

The contract was awarded by an undisclosed industrial shipowner in the tanker segment.
