NAVTOR, ScanReach Collaborate to Monitor Fleet Ops

NAVTOR and ScanReach signed an agreement that that is intended to supply shipowners with a connected, comprehensive and real-time view of vessel and fleet operations.

The collaboration will connect an onboard wireless IoT platform to a secure channel for sharing data between ship and shore, with the goal to deliver a seamless stream of information running from onboard sensors to land-based facilities, and back, enabling optimal decision-making, 24/7.

"Both ScanReach and NAVTOR share the vision of utilizing technology to enable smarter shipping, and by that I mean safer, more efficient, more environmentally friendly and, at the end of the day, more cost effective maritime operations for shipowners and society itself," said NAVTOR Chief Commercial Officer Børge Hetland. "With our advanced ENC-based services as the foundation we have built an infrastructure that allows the seamless sharing of data between vessels and shore, giving bridge officers the very latest information (for example, up to date charts, weather data and regulatory alerts) while owners and operators access vital fleet management information. ScanReach have created a breakthrough onboard infrastructure whereby sensors share real-time information from equipment, systems and even personnel with the bridge, giving the crew genuine insight of current vessel operations.

"This agreement puts those two infrastructures together. So suddenly it's not just the bridge officer that knows the latest performance data from 'sensor x' in the engine room, it's the team in the office on shore. This gives close to real-time 360-degree awareness like never before. The potential is really only limited by the ambition and imagination of this industry. This is the definition of a game changer."

The technology is currently undergoing full scale testing onboard North Sea Shipping's North Sea Giant subsea construction vessel, with a view of launching to market later this year. ScanReach's system will connect with NAVTOR's communication and pre-processing hub, NavBox, with all information relayed to land securely through this DNV GL certified cyber secure gateway.
