Sperry Marine has signed an agreement with DNV GL enabling vessels to securely share navigational data with the classification society.

The agreement will enable digital class and assurance services for seagoing vessels and help streamline the inspection process by giving DNV GL access to data from the ship’s bridge to assess the condition of hardware and software systems.

“This agreement with DNV GL to provide access to Sperry Marine’s secure digital bridge platform will make our customers’ vessels more efficient while also improving their safety at sea,” said James Collett, managing director, Sperry Marine.

“DNV GL's digital class services and extensive insight into maritime digital transformation will help to elevate the availability of navigation bridge data, ensuring that together we are positioned to deliver tangible operational efficiencies to customers.”

Data will be shared with DNV GL from Sperry Marine’s digital bridge platform SperrySphere.

Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, ceo of DNV GL – Maritime, commented, “Data is a key future currency supplementing the safe and well-known practices on which shipping relies. In enabling customers to use data securely via the SperrySphere, we can access and offer more class services digitally, helping our customers to safely reduce costs and optimise operations.”
