OSM to open data-powered vessel operations hub

Ship management company OSM reports that it is in the final stages of completing a Singapore-based Maritime Operations Centre that will act as a global hub for management of its vessels, with the aim of improving the efficiency of its operations through the application of Big Data analytics and decision support.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The facility, developed in partnership with Azendian Solutions, a Singapore-based analytics company, will initially connect all of OSM’s data sources across the world, before being expanded in the near future to become the main hub of OSM’s technical management services.

The Operations Centre will also act as a maritime innovation hub, with the company planning to develop new technologies at the facility through an ecosystem of digital partnerships.

“The Operations Centre is enabled by a Cloud-based analytics solution tailor-made for OSM,” said CEO Geir Sekkesaeter.

“This allows us to ‘join up’ all our global operations in real time, giving us full visibility, both financially and operationally, of every activity through a suite of dashboards and analytics applications. These can be accessed anywhere in the world, from any device, by any decision maker, empowering them to make optimal decisions at all times.”

“This creates transparency throughout the organisation and, through Big Data utilisation, allows us to identify trends, predict issues and take actions that deliver safety, efficiency and cost benefits for all our stakeholders. It is a truly transformational, long-term management solution that will create a platform for a new age of sustainable, optimised operations and commercial strength. We believe it sets a benchmark for the industry.”

The immediate aim of the Operations Centre will be focused on offering fleet support through data management and reporting, descriptive analytics, and predictive model optimisation, paired with machine learning to improve safety and operational efficiency.

Crews will be able to access the same information as employees on shore, while safety and incident response teams will have immediate access to all available operational data and support from continuous monitoring services.

“The initial construction of the Operations Centre may be nearing completion, but this is far from the end of the journey in terms of our technological development,” Mr Sekkesaeter added.

“We have ambitious plans to utilise this new analytical power as a platform to create maritime solutions that will help our customers meet their operational and commercial objectives.”

“We’re looking into a range of technologies – including IoT-enabled equipment, drones, blockchain, AI for predictive maintenance, advanced bots and edge computing, to name just a few – and will partner with leading digital developers to create smart solutions that make the most of our extensive data and industry understanding. The potential is huge, and this new facility will help us realise that.”{/mprestriction}
