DNV GL, a leading risk management company, has signed partnership agreements with WinGD, VAF Instruments and Viswa Lab to improve vessel performance.
All three of the partner companies will connect to DNV GL’s ECO Insight platform, the most widely used fleet performance solution with installations on over 2,000 vessels.
In addition to this, WinGD, VAF Instruments and Viswa Lab will join 22 industry partners that have already connected their data and analytics to the solution.
As part of the agreements, WinGD will deliver engine information and analytics to ECO Insight, while meter manufacturer VAF Instruments will support the accuracy of hull degradation assessments.

Viswa Lab, as a fuel testing company, will directly feed fuel test results into ECO Insight to include fuel quality data, such as calorific value or water content in the performance assessment of vessels.
Torsten Büssow, DNV GL’s global head for fleet performance management, made a statement: “We are very much looking forward to cooperating with innovative companies like WinGD, VAF Instruments, and Viswa Lab.
“We want to offer an integrated solution for fleet performance that provides better analytics while streamlining the work of the crew onboard, by avoiding double data entry and additional administrative task.”
The data integration with all three new partners has already begun and will be completed soon for the first joint customers of ECO Insight.
