Höegh Autoliners extends digitalisation partnership with Kongsberg Digital
Höegh Autoliners has signed an agreement with Kongsberg Digital to digitalise the remaining vessels in its fleet as well as its upcoming Aurora-class vessels. The agreement extends the close working relationship between Kongsberg Digital and Höegh Autoliners that began in 2019.
The Aurora-class vessels will have Vessel Insight installed when they embark on their maiden voyages. The newly signed contract also ensures the continued roll-out of Vessel Insight to Höegh Autoliners’ existing fleet, except for a few older vessels, and be connected to the cloud through Kongsberg Digital’s maritime cloud infrastructure throughout 2023.
In 2019, Höegh Autoliners was the first customer of Vessel Insight, Kongsberg Digital’s cloud infrastructure. To exploit new ways to reduce emissions, increase predictability, and improve safety, Höegh Autoliners has been a vital pilot customer for Kongsberg Digital, testing new technology such as Digital Twin for the maritime industry and applications such as Vessel Performance.
