Proper paint maintenance can extend asset life, and the right coating on a vessel hull can save up to 8% in fuel costs. SteelCorr's Digital Paint Report application featured on Kognifai enables centralized management of all paint maintenance data of an asset on a secure collaborative platform. It promotes communication among the stakeholders and empowers them with actionable insights to optimize paint performance and reduce maintenance costs.
At Nor-Shipping last week, KONGSBERG launched Vessel Insight, a new subscription-based data infrastructure solution for vessels. Through the subscription, Vessel Insight customers get access to the Kognifai Marketplace with a number of value adding applications available in the cloud. Now, SteelCorr will offer their Digital Paint Report application in the Kognifai Marketplace.
“Maintenance is one of the most significant cost factors for maritime industries. The ability to plan, report and monitor according to constantly changing external factors is crucial for increasing efficiency, safety and accuracy of operations at sea. By joining the Kognifai Partner Program SteelCorr can offer their solution to customers on Vessel Insight and get access to a growing set of Kognifai services which will enable them to develop new functionality over time. This will lead to more and better applications for customers,” says Vigleik Takle, senior vice president of digital solutions in Kongsberg Digital.
“The Digital Paint Report is a simplified quality assurance and performance monitoring tool at a very reasonable cost. Everything from the maintenance plan to coating application to performance surveys can be documented and optimized on a single platform”, states Leroy Dias, Founder, SteelCorr, and continues “Making the application available on Kognifai enables customers to easily unlock its value enhancing potential.”
SteelCorr’s Digital Paint Report solution, a cloud-based application, will be accessible in the Kognifai Marketplace from August.
