i4 Insight, a subsidiary of Lloyd’s Register, has partnered with Danelec, bringing together specialists in data collection and analysis to provide customers with a more cost-effective solution for optimizing vessel performance.
Danelec currently works with over 10,000 vessels. This will provide vast amounts of new data that will be fed into the machine learning technology to take it to the next level of intelligence.
Joel Meltzner, CEO of i4 Insight, said; “Danelec are experts in accessing and collecting data on ships, they have equipment installed on thousands of ships. Our new partnership now means that Danelec data can be fed directly into our i4 fleet optimization platform for AI analysis without any additional equipment being installed. We can use this data to provide accurate and actionable insights to shipowners and charterers to improve vessel performance.”
Casper Jensen, CEO of Danelec, said; “Partnering with i4 allows us to offer our customers a quick and easy plug-and-play solution for using the navigation and engine room data collected onboard to improve vessel efficiency while reducing their carbon footprint to comply with upcoming emissions reduction regulations”
Captain John Horner, who leads the i4 Insight Alliance, said; “Our customers use the i4 platform because they want a digital fleet performance platform and everything in one place. We pride ourselves on listening to our customers and pushing the boundaries of innovation. So when we explored the possibility of Danelec joining the alliance, it made a lot of sense. »
The objective of the i4 Alliance program is to leverage the strengths of each partner to provide shipowners and charterers with more efficient and effective solutions centered on fleet management, vessel optimization and decarbonization strategies.
“The key concept of the i4 Alliance is not simply to add independent partners, but rather to create a network of suppliers who complement each other and, more importantly, help shipping companies solve complex problems. This approach allows us bring new, innovative and integrated products and services to market very quickly, with the goal of exceeding our customers’ expectations,” said Meltzner.
