Navtor and Hoppe Marine join forces on big data drive

The partnership allows customers of the firms to feed critical real-time operational data into the NavFleet application, giving onshore teams complete awareness, understanding and control of their maritime assets.

It is, says Arild Risholm Sæther, CBDO NavFleet, NAVTOR:

“the key to better business decisions that impact on performance, profitability and sustainable fleet management.”

“HOPPE is an established industry giant in the field of sensor technology, control systems and the digitisation of fleets. By tapping into the wealth of data their advanced maritime systems harvest, NavFleet can deliver enhanced operational understanding and performance for users worldwide.

“It will empower onshore teams; delivering an ability to ‘have eyes on the ship’ like never before, with full operational insight and awareness. From there they have the means to use our powerful analytics platform - which offers dual validation to ensure the best quality data – to continually benchmark, manage and improve vessel, and business, performance. This kind of agreement is essential for an industry targeting greater sustainability, connecting the data with the means to act on it. ”

Alongside the performance monitoring, management and optimisation benefits, NavFleet will also radically reduce administration at sea and on shore, auto-populating reports, automating tasks, reducing human error, and simplifying compliance.

Hauke Hendricks, Head of Sales, HOPPE MARINE, sees real value for customers in aligning itself with the Norwegian-headquartered firm.

“NAVTOR, like us, is a trusted industry partner with an ambition of enabling efficient, environmentally friendly operations that help shipowners and operators tackle challenges today, and seize opportunity tomorrow. Data is central to that and our systems – of which we have more than 9000 installed worldwide – will deliver the foundation for improved ways of working and seamless asset understanding.”
