Kongsberg Digital is collaborating with Brazilian offshore and merchant shipping company Posidonia to equip selected vessels from Posidonia’s fleet with Kongsberg Digital’s vessel-to-cloud infrastructure, Vessel Insight, and the K-fleet applications suite.

Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight is said to offer a streamlined approach to maritime digitalisation, allowing shipowners like Posidonia to tap into their vessel data’s potential fully. This integration allows Posidonia to access real-time data from its fleet, providing valuable insights to enhance operations, minimise fuel consumption, and support sustainability efforts. Furthermore, through the K-fleet application suite by Kongsberg Digital, Posidonia will benefit from a range of tools that assist in areas such as maintenance planning, inventory management, procurement, quality and safety management, documentation, and fleet operation.

The Vessel Insight infrastructure will be installed on five of Posidonia’s offshore vessels and four merchant vessels. The Brazili-based shipping company offers cargo transportation in the Brazilian Domestic Cabotage and International Trade and operations in Offshore and Ship Management. Kongsberg Digital says that its partnership with Posidonia reinforces its dedication to driving digital transformation in key maritime hubs.

Posidonia COO Alex Ikonomopoulos said: “The maritime industry is facing mounting pressure to reduce its carbon footprint, and digital solutions such as Vessel Insight are crucial in helping shipowners meet environmental goals. Posidonia is at the forefront of maritime digitalisation through this partnership, demonstrating its dedication to sustainable shipping practices.”

Christopher Bergsager, VP Growth Global Maritime, Kongsberg Digital added: “We’re thrilled to partner with Posidonia, a prominent player in the Brazilian maritime sector. Our Vessel Insight platform is designed to simplify maritime digitalisation, and with this collaboration, Posidonia can harness the full potential of its vessel data. This partnership underscores Kongsberg Digital’s dedication to advancing digital transformation in maritime hubs globally.”
