Kongsberg and Shell work on decarbonizing the maritime industry | Rigzone

Kongsberg Digital, a subsidiary of Kongsberg, and Shell today signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on new ways to accelerate decarbonization initiatives and help the energy transition in the maritime industry.

At the international maritime trade fair SMM this week in Hamburg, Kongsberg Digital and Shell subsidiary Shell Marine signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen their service offerings to the maritime industry by developing joint solutions, improving their service portfolios and identifying pilot projects to test their combined capabilities. .

“The energy transition for the maritime sector will involve new types of fuel, new technologies and new ways of working, as the industry pushes towards decarbonisation. KDI and Shell both see the urgency of supporting their maritime customers in the energy transition. In the near term, the maritime industry needs to operate vessels more efficiently through increased availability and reliability, while ensuring environmental compliance,” said Anders Bryhni, Vice President of Ocean Digital Applications at Kongsberg Digital.

The new partnership will see Kongsberg Digital bring its digital data infrastructure solutions, applications and open ecosystems together with Shell’s portfolio of technical and digital services, which improve performance and reduce operating and maintenance costs for its maritime customers. .

“Partnerships and technical services play a key role in decarbonizing shipping given the scale of the challenge ahead. Shell and Kongsberg have a long history of working closely together to optimize vessel efficiency and operations, and I am delighted that this Memorandum of Understanding further underlines that collaboration,” said Marcus Schaerer, Managing Director of Services and Engineering, Shell Marine. .

The MoU reinforces a long-standing partnership between Kongsberg Digital and Shell in the energy sector. The company provides Shell with its digital twin Kognitwin on several Shell assets, including the Nyhamna Gas facility in Norway.
