DNV GL’s high ambition is to reduce fatality rates by 90 percent in 2050 below present levels. This requires a new safety mind-set, and a continuous focus on technologies and how organisations are structured and operated. We advance technologies that make structures and systems more resilient. We focus on human factors and support our customers in enhancing operational safety.

Big data will change the way the maritime industry works. Increased analysis capability is key to providing our customers with insight and decision-making support. Smart management of inspection information helps assessing the integrity of the structure and systems and moving towards condition-based inspections. We prototype future maritime information platforms to facilitate advanced ship and fleet performance management. Our work relies on efficiently capturing information, and presenting it in a form that effectively supports our customers in handling increasing complexity.

DNV GL’s services and tools support a business goal of zero downtime to increase ship and system availability. We identify and exploit opportunities to increase the cargo intake and thereby the earning potential for ships. One path is route-specific solutions. As ships are part of the supply chain we help optimise the overall efficiency by addressing e.g. port turnaround times, fleet planning, scale effects and short sea shipping.
