Dubai-based Bahri Data and DNV GL report that they have signed a contract to co-develop Big Data technologies for use in the maritime sector.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Bahri Data is one of the six business units that make up the Bahri Group, the national shipping company of Saudi Arabia. The project will make use of Bahri’s BRISO (Bahri Resource Integrated Sea Operations) system, which stores fleet data in a ‘Data Lake’ to provide intelligence to the Bahri Data Grid, as well as leveraging DNV GL’s Veracity Big Data platform.

Data scientists from both companies have already begun work on a prototype system to support vessel operational decision making, incorporating data on a vessel’s safety and quality status and historical background to support operational decision-making.

“This collaboration provides both Bahri Data and DNV GL’s Veracity platform with an important opportunity to combine our industry-leading expertise in Big Data and advanced analytics in shipping, oil and gas, and marine services with Veracity’s innovative and advanced data-assessment capabilities to drive long-term value,” said Anwar Siddiqui, president of Bahri Data.

“These collaborations are remarkable enablers of growth for the sector, allowing global players to continuously innovate, stay ahead of industry trends, and implement best practices that will enable us to further improve our services and optimise performance.”{/mprestriction}
