Dorian LPG ApS signs contract to install Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight on LPG carrier fleet

Kongsberg Digital said Dorian LPG ApS, a subsidiary of Dorian LPG Ltd, a leading owner and operator of modern VLGCs, has contracted to install Vessel Insight on its entire fleet of 22 LPG carriers.

By installing Vessel Insight, Dorian is consolidating the collection of all critical data from its vessels into one common infrastructure. The agreement is expected to commence operation in the upcoming months.

With the installation of Vessel Insight, Dorian plans to collect all critical data from its entire VLGC (Very Large Gas Carrier) fleet.

The purpose is to gain insight into signals coming from the fleet’s assets and enable realisation of data-driven operations. The Vessel Insight data infrastructure solution is based on open principles and allows owners and operators to partner with software providers of their choosing.

Dorian’s initial plan is to monitor and predict consumption and emissions data to plan for IMO 2023 regulations, which will require vessels to combine technical and operational approaches in order to reduce their carbon emissions. Dorian also seeks to benchmark the performance between vessel types in their fleet.

“Since going public in 2013, Dorian LPG Ltd has been a forerunner in adopting the latest technologies within the maritime industry, and we are very happy to continue that trend by delivering Vessel Insight to their fleet,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, executive vice president digital ocean, Kongsberg Digital.

He added: “This contract emphasises the untapped potential and value of collecting data to analyse, predict and improve processes for vessels and fleets, especially given the current situation within the maritime industry, where gaining a competitive edge and decarbonising while meeting new regulations is key to survival and success. Vessel Insight will ensure that Dorian is properly equipped to meet their goals.”
