Wilhelmsen begins Veracity pilot project

Wilhelmsen has begun one of the first data sharing pilot projects on the DNV GL Veracity open data platform, testing a system to share ship compliance and condition data with port state authorities to reduce paper work and physical inspections when entering ports.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“As ships and their systems become more sophisticated, we have more equipment with sensors onboard that are generating and sharing data,” said Inge André Sandvik, chief digital officer at the Wilhelmsen Group.

“If we can gather and systemise this data, this opens up a huge range of possibilities, for example predicting maintenance needs, optimising 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. 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.”

Currently, Wilhelmsen and DNV GL say they are conducting the pilot project on the platform in cooperation with a major port state authority.

Wilhelmsen has created a secure data container within Veracity where it can collect compliance, condition and other relevant data on its vessels. The PSA can then be granted access to this data, reducing paper work and speeding up port entry.

“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,” said Bjørn Tore Markussen, managing director of the Veracity platform unit at DNV GL.{/mprestriction}
