New partnership to deliver data-driven solutions for offshore wind

Oslo-listed seismic data provider TGS and Norwegian technology firm Kongsberg have established a strategic collaboration to jointly develop integrated data and digital solutions for the fast-expanding offshore wind industry. 

Under a memorandum of understanding, the two companies said they will aim to combine data with digital solutions that are accessible, modular, scalable, and support an open ecosystem.

“The offshore wind industry holds potential for exponential growth and is widely viewed as being crucial for increasing the production and share of renewable energy needed to reduce emissions in line with global goals set for 2030 and 2050. To enable the scaling speed required to achieve this ambition, the process of prospecting, site assessment, and field development needs to be more efficient,” the companies said in a statement.

Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said the partnership is uniquely positioned to provide reduced development and installation costs, shorter cycle times, and better operational performance for the entire offshore wind project life cycle from site assessment to operations.

Since 2021, TGS has actively diversified its energy data and insights into renewable energy and carbon storage via strategic partnerships, organic initiatives, and acquisitions, and today claims to have a client base of over 450 companies focusing on offshore wind.

Kongsberg has been part of the offshore renewables industry since its inception, mainly through ship design and marine systems of Kongsberg Maritime, and subsea data acquisition sensors and solutions by Kongsberg Discovery. Last year, the group established Kongsberg Renewables Technologies to accelerate growth further.
