Kongsberg and NorSea Taking Offshore Wind Logistics to Digital Realm
Kongsberg Digital is purchasing a 34 per cent ownership share in NSG Digital, a subsidiary of the NorSea Group. The two companies will now collaborate on digitalising the supply chain in the oil and gas and offshore wind industries.
“NorSea Group`s existing services and infrastructure already make us a major player within offshore logistics. With our position it is vital that we take an active role in offering digital solutions that will lead to a more efficient supply chain. This is done through NSG Digital, and in collaboration with Kongsberg Digital, our customers and our suppliers, " said Chief Commercial Officer in NorSea Group, Ola Thuen Neergaard.
Kongsberg Digital and NSG Digital have collaborated since the beginning of 2017 on developing a new logistics system called NSG E2E.
NSG E2E (End-to-End) is offered as a part of Kongsberg Digital's application platform, Kognifai, and is a solution that improves logistics management through increasing information sharing and collaboration in the supply chain, Kongsberg Digital said.
“Digitalisation holds a great potential for optimising logistics operation within the oil and gas industry. By connecting and making better use of the vast amounts of data companies possess, significant efficiency improvements can be made. Through our digital competence and digital platform, Kognifai, in combination with the logistics expertise and experience of NSG Digital and NorSea Group we can realize the potential for greater efficiency," said Hege Skryseth, President of Kongsberg Digital.
