Kongsberg and NSG strengthen digital supply chain initiative

Kongsberg Digital has purchased a 34% share in NSG Digital, a subsidiary of the supply base and logistics company NorSea Group.
NorSea Group, controlled by Wilhelmsen, is joining forces with Kongsberg Digital to digitalise the supply chain in the oil and gas and offshore wind industries.
Kongsberg Digital and NSG Digital have collaborated since the beginning of 2017 on developing a new logistics system called NSG E2E.
NSG E2E (End-to-End) is offered as a part of Kongsberg Digital's application platform, Kognifai, and is a solution that it says improves logistics management through increasing information sharing and collaboration in the supply chain.
“We are very excited by the investment in software development made by NorSea Group and its subsidiary NSG Digital,” said Chief Digital Officer of Wilhelmsen, Inge André Sandvik.
“The news that is presented today is one of several collaborative projects in our group, and digitalisation is shaping our future within the maritime industry.”
Hege Skryseth, President of Kongsberg Digital, commented: “Digitalisation holds a great potential for optimising logistics operation within the oil and gas industry. By connecting and making better use of the vast amounts of data companies possess, significant efficiency improvements can be made.
“Through our digital competence and digital platform, Kognifai, in combination with the logistics expertise and experience of NSG Digital and NorSea Group we can realise the potential for greater efficiency.”
