The digital paradigm shift

Advances in information technology are continuing to shift the way systems and networks are organized in the industries we serve. In 2016, we started to fundamentally change the way our software solutions are delivered by adopting integrated digital asset ecosystems.

Sustainable solutions

Companies are increasingly looking to implement data smart solutions for integrating systems that improve the management of occupational and process safety and reduce their environmental footprint, including lowering greenhouse gas emissions. DNV GL Software’s solutions, used by thousands of customers in a range of industries, support sustainable performance through risk management, design optimization, reducing energy consumption and reporting.

Synergi Life: digital decision-making tool with more than 750,000 users

We see a shift in regulation and the way companies respond to sustainability risks by using digital decision-making tools. According to the Verdantix Global EH&S Survey 2016, DNV GL’s Synergi Life is one of the world’s most recognized EH&S (environment, health and safety) software brands. Synergi Life risk management software covers non-conformances, incidents, risks, risk analyses, audits, assessments and improvement suggestions.

Synergi Life’s QHSE software system for enterprise risk is used by over 350 companies worldwide, with more than 750,000 users globally across industries such as energy, healthcare, transport, local government, construction, etc.

Enabling higher water quality standards

In 2016, four new modules were added to Synergi Water, which improve data smart water modelling and enable higher water quality standards.

Safeti software helps operators manage the risk of accidents

Our software solution for quantitative risk analysis, Safeti, helps operators manage the risk of accidents. Complex scenarios are modelled and analysed, and the new features added in 2016 mean the analyses are done more efficiently and in greater detail, making for better risk management.

RAM analysis for effective optimization of existing assets

The world is facing a new reality when it comes to sustainability risks and opportunities. For instance, the efficient operation of oil & gas facilities – upstream, midstream or downstream – with a minimum of waste and hazardous emissions is now mainstream. Green processes are no longer the exception, but the norm.

A Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) analysis provides key parameters to guarantee a sustainable process. The equation is quite simple: more reliable processes use less feed products, reduce the size of storage and deliver the same amount of end-product. DNV GL’s Maros software brings RAM studies beyond the design stage, with more effective optimization of existing assets.

Monitoring environmental impact of shipping

With Navigator Insight software, shipping companies can support the realization of their environmental policy and monitor fulfilment of the obligations of the ISO 14001 standard, including continuous reduction of their environmental impact. For example, the container shipping company Hamburg Süd, supported by our maritime software solutions, has seen positive improvements in relation to its self-imposed environmental target to lower CO2 emissions by 45% by 2020. At the end of 2015, it had achieved a reduction of almost 35% compared to the 2009 base year.

To increase transparency and reduce its environmental footprint, Hamburg Süd is now using DNV GL’s Navigator Insight for voyage reporting while having also implemented our ECO Insight solutions for fleet performance analysis. This way, Hamburg Süd can implement their environmental policy and monitor fulfilment of the obligations of the ISO 14001 standard, including continuous reduction of their environmental impact, and also analyse and compare fleet and vessel performance, benchmark against the market and identify the right improvement levers for fuel and emission reductions.
