StormGeo and DNV GL deepen partnership

StormGeo and DNV GL have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the aim of driving digitalisation and data standardisation in the maritime industry.

As part of the MoU, the parties will strengthen the presence and integration of StormGeo’s performance management and weather intelligence solutions on DNV GL’s independent data platform, Veracity.

This will allow StormGeo’s customers to further optimise the operations of their fleet, said DNV GL. Veracity users, meanwhile, will benefit from easy integration of StormGeo’s weather intelligence services that can be accessed on the Veracity Marketplace.

“We are very happy to deepen the partnership with DNV GL to make data sharing for our clients even easier,” said Thilo Dückert, StormGeo vice president, fleet performance management. “Today StormGeo offers an integrated solution to span navigation and voyage planning, weather routing and fleet performance management. We believe this partnership signals the industry that we intend to further enhance our service portfolio to help clients improve safety and fuel efficiency of their vessels.”

Mikkel Skou, director of Veracity at DNV GL, added: “With Veracity, we have built an independent network of industry relevant companies, where the members of the network can buy, combine, share and collaborate on data to optimise their operation – all while knowing their data is safe and secure throughout the process.

“StormGeo is an important supplier to many of Veracity’s customers and we have received interest from our clients for stronger integration with StormGeo in our platform products. We now look forward to closely examine how we can do this in a manner where both companies’ customers can gain from our united strengths.”

The MoU builds on an agreement from March 2019 when DNV GL and StormGeo announced that they would consolidate their fleet performance solutions under the StormGeo banner.

The agreement combined DNV GL’s ECO Insight and Navigator Insight solutions with StormGeo’s FleetDSS and ship reporting solutions.
