The system will be used to roll out a common IT infrastructure across all Deep Sea Supply vessels, and will be delivered as a managed service.
The agreement also covers hardware, logistics, roll-out and migration services on board the vessels.
“We believe that the KeepUp@Sea solution from Palantir would best meet the overall objectives for Deep Sea Supply, which is to provide a reliable and secure IT network on board our vessels. We have chosen Palantir because they provide a unique, comprehensive and proven solution, with many years of operational experience at major shipping companies,” said Anders Hall Jomaas, CFO at Deep Sea Supply.
“By utilising Palantir’s extensive experience, we will be able to jumpstart the process, and quickly start seeing the benefits.”
Mr Jomaas believes that having a reliable and secure IT network will help to improve crew welfare, enable Deep Sea Supply to deploy and operate standard solutions across its fleet of PSV and AHTS vessels, and reduce support requirements. He notes that future upgrades and changes can also be deployed from a single point onshore, reducing travel costs and improving efficiency.
Arvid Dregelid, CEO of Palantir, says: “This major deal is a statement of quality – both for our KeepUp@Sea solution and the skills of the people involved in supporting and developing the KeepUp@Sea solution. The core focus on standardization and automation of IT&C services proves to be an advantage towards achieving new, international customers.”
