Wilhelmsen eyes efficiency gains by sharing data on DNV GL’s Veracity platform

Wilhelmsen is exploring concrete ways of leveraging their data on DNV GL’s Veracity industry platform. In one of the first data sharing pilot projects on the new open platform, Wilhelmsen is testing a system to share ship compliance and condition data with port state authorities to reduce paper work and physical inspections when entering ports.  

Wilhelmsen is exploring concrete ways of leveraging their data on DNV GL’s Veracity industry platform. In one of the first data sharing pilot projects on the new open platform, Wilhelmsen is testing a system to share ship compliance and condition data with port state authorities to reduce paper work and physical inspections when entering ports.

“As ships and their systems become more sophisticated, we have more equipment with sensors onboard that are generating and sharing data. If we can gather and systemize this data, this opens up a huge range of possibilities, for example predicting maintenance needs, optimizing vessel performance and safety, or, as we are now testing, making port entry procedures more smooth and efficient. The Veracity platform from DNV GL enables us to make better use of this data by being able to invite partners, suppliers and other stakeholders to share data and collaborate on the platform,” says Inge André Sandvik, Chief Digital Officer at The Wilhelmsen Group.

Currently, Wilhelmsen and DNV GL are testing a pilot project on the Veracity platform in cooperation with a major port state authority. Wilhelmsen has created a secure data container on Veracity, where they can collect compliance, condition and other relevant data on their vessels. Through the platform, they are then able to grant the PSA access to this data, reducing paper work and speeding port entry. “The project is still in an early phase, but it shows how an open and secure data platform could reduce friction between stakeholders and create greater efficiencies,” says Sandvik.

Bjørn Tore Markussen, Managing Director of the Veracity platform unit in DNV GL, says: “We have built Veracity to create a secure data platform for digital innovation and collaboration that can drive improved business performance and safety management. Veracity is designed especially with asset owners like Wilhelmsen in mind, who face the challenge of having data in many different “silos”, which can prevent them from extracting the true value of their data.”

Veracity allows Wilhelmsen to share and aggregate data in a secure manner, while facilitating connections between different industry players. Veracity also includes a marketplace, where platform users can access industrial applications and data analytics services that can help them make better use of their data. These services are provided not only by DNV GL, but by other qualified data, data analytics, software and digital solutions providers.

Remi Eriksen, Group CEO and President of DNV GL, says: “Wilhelmsen and DNV GL have a 150-year long track record of driving innovation in the maritime industry. Wilhelmsen is also a frontrunner on digitalization in the maritime industry, which is why we are so pleased to be working with them to explore the value of the Veracity industry platform.”
