DNV GL is the world’s leading classification society and a recognized advisor for the maritime industry. As an independent technical assurance and classification/verification company, DNV GL already manages an enormous amount of asset and industry data on behalf of many different maritime stakeholders.
This project aims to explore the potential opportunities from the greater use of this data and realize key innovations to create a new, world-leading Digital Class platform for the maritime industry. This will be done in close cooperation with ship owners/managers and equipment manufacturers. By using the data generated from ships and machinery, today's prescriptive, calendar-based inspection regime can be made more efficient through the use of more risk-based, targeted and data-driven inspections.
In addition, providing operators and owners greater access to data and data analytics can provide deeper insights into the technical status of both individual vessels and entire fleets as well as the equipment onboard, all of which can contribute to making ship operations safer, smarter and greener.
