Shell, Kongsberg sign decarbonisation deal

Kongsberg Digital (KDI), a subsidiary of Kongsberg, and Shell Marine have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to fast-track decarbonisation initiatives and assist the energy transition across the maritime industry.

The new partnership will see KDI bring its digital data infrastructure solutions, applications, and open ecosystems together with Shell’s portfolio of Technical and Digital Services.

“The energy transition for the maritime sector will involve new types of fuel, new technology and new ways of working, as the industry pushes towards decarbonisation,” said Anders Bryhni, VP Digital Ocean Applications at Kongsberg Digital.

“KDI and Shell both see the urgent need to support their maritime customers through the energy transition. In the short run, the marine industry needs to operate vessels in a more efficient manner through increased uptime and reliability, while ensuring environmental compliance.”

“Partnerships and technical services play a key role in shipping decarbonisation given the scale of the challenge ahead,” said Marcus Schaerer, General Manager Services & Technical at Shell Marine.

“Shell and Kongsberg have long worked closely to optimise vessel efficiency and operations, and I am pleased that this MoU further underscores this collaboration.”

The MoU builds on a longstanding partnership between KDI and Shell in the energy sector. KDI currently provides Shell with its digital twin Kognitwin on several assets, including the Nyhamna Gas facility in Norway.

Just last week, a collective of firms including MSC and Shell launched a new strategy to reduce methane emissions from vessels.

In a statement, initiative supporters noted there were no globally recognised methods for measuring methane slip and reaffirmed the importance of clarity in methane emissions measurements.
