Launch of Danelec Connect digital platform unlocks new vessel & fleet operational efficiencies


Leading maritime operational and safety technology company Danelec has launched Danelec Connect, a new digital platform designed to boost operational efficiency, safety and sustainability through significantly enriched Ship Performance Monitoring.

The platform was unveiled at the StormGeo Exclusive Shipping Advisory Board APAC in Singapore this week. A powerful cloud- based solution, Danelec’s new software is specifically designed to optimize diverse marine operations and address the many intricacies of vessel, fleet and voyage management.

Danelec Connect is an agnostic platform for extracting operational and business value from automated high-quality data regardless of source or format and across single or multiple vessels. A powerful cloud-based dataspace for storage, analysis, sharing and insight, Danelec Connect powers the maritime sustainability and safety agenda forward with essential new workflows and includes automated reporting to ensure effortless compliance with emission regulations, offering intuitive visuals on fuel consumption, Carbon Intensity Index (CII), and other critical metrics.

Danelec Connect is the culmination of Danelec’s acquisition of the Norwegian Ship Performance specialist, Kyma, in late 2021. Leveraging Kyma’s Ship Performance Monitoring expertise and Danelec’s data-capture capabilities enabled by its market leading Voyage Data Recorders (VDR) and Vessel Remote Server (VRS), Danelec Connect comes from a shared ambition to provide digital access to actionable insights from diverse data for stakeholders across the maritime ecosystem.
Commenting on the launch of the new platform, recently appointed SVP for Danelec Connect, Christian Treu (pictured) said: “Danelec Connect is the result of combining best-in-class technologies and expertise. Kyma’s legacy and proficiency within Ship Performance Monitoring and Danelec’s maritime data acquisition strengths combine to impact how ship owners manage their fleet with new, more efficient, cost effective and simplified workflows.

“We are at the tipping point of maritime industry digitalization. Shipping may lag behind, but we have seen progress on the digital agenda during the past three years and there is much more potential ahead – especially in noon reporting,” continued Treu. “Today, nearly 70% of all ship owners are exploring digital solutions to bring about operational efficiencies. With that transition, I feel confident that the noon reports will be dead and gone within a matter of a few years.”
