Kongsberg Digital has acquired Coach Solutions' vessel optimising tools which closely match its own digital marine offer.

The software suite allows users "to optimize energy consumption and receive constantly up-to-date weather routing, making large economic and environmental savings from their operations," Kongsberg Digital said in a statement.

Coach said the merger will mean it can "unlock the value of digital data with [Kongsberg Digital's] Kognifai intrastructure".

Using software programmes to improve vessel efficiency and reduce vessel emissions is seen as one of the industry's key path's to decarbonisation.
