Equinor and Vissim agree strategic collaboration for the digitalization of marine operations
Equinor and Vissim have reached a global frame agreement to deploy Vissim’s solution for surveillance of the ocean space surrounding all Equinor- and several 3rd party operated assets on the UK- and Norwegian Continental Shelves. The new system, which will act as one of Equinor’s systems for their strategic move towards digitalization, will incorporate the benefits of machine learning and enable surveillance of vessel traffic (VTMS), air traffic, subsea structures, environment and real time weather situation and forecasts. Conceived to incorporate both traditional- and offshore wind assets, the resulting system is one of the largest of its kind in the world. The contract is for 6 years and has a minimum value of 100 MNOK.Horten, December 2018
