Kongsberg Digital has signed a partnership agreement with Recogni to add their Blue Power EMS application to the Kognifai Marketplace. The application, which is big-data based, is an energy efficiency tool that can reduce fuel consumption with more than 15 percent.
Blue Power EMS will help ship owners and operators to reduce fuel consumption by combining operational data from the vessel with weather data, such as ocean currents and wave height. The crew receives optimal parameters, like best speed and engine configuration, in real time, on a dashboard on the bridge. Furthermore, the data collected from the ship is logged and can be used for reporting, comparison, and learning.
Recogni is an innovative, and well renowned company that we are pleased to partner within a time where the maritime industry is under vast pressure to cut emissions, get control over fuel consumptions and report accordingly. Due to low margins, there is also a need to find smart and cost-effective ways to optimize the operations. Blue Power EMS have proven to be a valuable tool for this and will be a well-received application on our Kognifai marketplace, says Eirik Næsje, Senior Vice President of Vessel Insight, Kongsberg Digital.
Blue Power EMS collects real time data through Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight infrastructure from the ships IAS, GPS and other relevant sources, such as flow meters. Intelligent algorithms calculate the most efficient operations, and world-wide weather data is collected to adjust recommendations for sea state influence. To make all aspects of the solution relevant, all recommendations are tailored to each vessel, different operations and specific requirements
Kongsberg Digital is a leader in the digitalization of the maritime industry, and we are very pleased to partner with them to help the industry becoming more efficient and sustainable through digitalization, says Stian Grønning, CEO, Recogni. For the maritime and offshore industry there is a need to demonstrate real actions on fuel efficiency and environmental measures to win contracts. Blue Power EMS is the perfect tool to get control of fuel consumption, and I am confident it will benefit Kognifai’s Vessel Insight subscribers.
Blue Power EMS will be available for Vessel Insight subscribers on the Kognifai Marketplace from August 2021.
