Damen wins digital innovation award

Damen Shipyards Group has won at the inaugural IDC Future of Digital Innovation Awards in the Performance as a Service category for its Triton program.

Triton is a digital platform that collects, analyses, and visualises data from a connected vessel. The platform collects various data from Damen vessels, which are equipped with 10,000-15,000 sensors. Data collected includes, levels of fuel, fresh water and oil stored onboard and engine performance indicators such as power, RPM or fuel consumption.

The company says Triton draws on its design knowledge and experience with system and service integration to provide users with a platform that enables continuous operational optimisation of their fleet, increasing efficiency of their operations.

“IDC recognises Damen Shipyards for its work to improve the service of its vessels,” says Mickey North Rizza, IDC’s program vice president, enterprise applications and digital commerce. “Damen used innovative techniques to change the vessel monitoring systems, aiding preventive maintenance, avoiding potentially costly repairs and maximising vessel uptime.

“This digital innovation facilitated zero touch commissioning of remote offshore vessels, across all Damen built vessels and in collaboration with the relevant vendors in the vessel ecosystem.”

Damen says Triton is part of its strategy to become the most sustainable, digitally connected shipbuilder and to provide its clients with a service spanning the lifecycle of its products, from sales lead to decommissioning.

The awards were created by IDC (US based International Data Corporation) to highlight successful digital innovation projects and initiatives, other winners include Mattel (Fisher-Price Smart Connect), the U.S. Air Force (Virtual Mission Trainer), Shell (Open AI Energy Initiative) and the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (Pay-it-Forward).
