Kongsberg Digital (KDI) has signed a new partnership with Metis Cyberspace Technology, to add the METIS data analysis platform to the Kognifai Marketplace, enabling fleet operators to monitor operations in real time and optimise vessel performance, reducing emissions and costs.
Metis is a cloud-based, data analysis platform which offers real-time monitoring, performance analysis and evaluation as well as predictive insights for a whole fleet. The Metis platform will be available through KDI´s vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure Vessel Insight, and the Kognifai Marketplace where customers have access to a range of applications to meet their data analysis, reporting and monitoring needs and optimise operations.
The architecture of the Metis platform allows clients to integrate data from all available sources and select those from the portfolio of digital ship performance solutions to fit best to their needs. There is no need to install additional hardware on board.
All applications on the Kognifai Marketplace are supported by KDI’s Vessel Insight secure data infrastructure. Vessel Insight is delivered as a subscription-based service, which means there is no need for up-front investments and updates.
Kim Evanger, VP Maritime Partnerships, KDI, said: “We are very happy to announce this new partnership with Metis Cyberspace Technology. The company uses advanced technology and high-end expertise to innovate and digitalize the maritime industries, and with Metis as part of the Kognifai Marketplace, customers now have an even greater choice to find the best suited solution to unlock value from their data.”
Using real time analytics based on artificial intelligence, Metis continuously analyses fuel consumption, hull fouling, emissions and route costs, and offers voyage analyses to match performance against the requirements of regulators, charter parties or even investors while at the same time reducing operational costs.
Andreas Symeonidis, Marketing and Partner Relations Manager, Metis Cyberspace Technology, added: “This is an exciting new partnership which brings together two innovators committed to reaping the full rewards which digitalisation and artificial intelligence offer shipping. Working with the data gathered by KDI, Metis offers clients the actionable solutions they need to achieve higher performance and lower carbon emissions, in a hassle-free, safe and certified way.”
