Fueled by AI and human expertise, and by fully integrating Alpha Ori Technologies’ high-frequency data and expertise in IoT sensors, ZeroNorth will streamline resource management, predict maintenance, monitor hull performance, optimize voyages, digitalize bunker operations, track and report emissions and enable stronger vessel selection decisions for its customers.

More broadly, the milestone is said to further power up shipping’s digital transformation. The deal will create a beacon of empowerment for the industry, improving decision-making on a wide scale across the value chain.

The joint business will remain an independent company with robust financial backing and heritage from top industry leaders, leveraging their deep shipping knowledge to deliver transformative solutions that positively impact the sector. The company will be headquartered in Copenhagen with 12 global offices.
