Høglund, a renowned provider of automation solutions for the global shipping industry, has entered a partner agreement with DNV’s leading industry cloud platform, Veracity. Together, the partners will provide seamless flow of operational data from onboard vessels to DNV’s data verification services, making emissions reporting more efficient for the partners’ common customers.

The maritime industry stands to benefit significantly from the digitization of data collection, compilation, processing, analysis, distribution, and interconnectivity. With DNV’s expertise in risk management and assurance services, and Høglund’s automation solutions and vessel data utilization services, the partners share a common interest in driving innovation and fostering sustainable practices in the maritime industry.

By consolidating valuable information from vessels that are operating with Høglund’s systems and their Connect portal, and running it over Veracity, the two partners enable stakeholders to access and utilize verified and trusted data efficiently. This integration promotes transparency, innovation, sustainability, and improved decision-making that benefits both customers and affiliated companies, as well as society as whole.
