J. LAURITZEN: IoT Connects Fleet and Administration

J. Lauritzen is a Danish investment company in the maritime industry founded in 1884.
Delegate has created an IoT solution that gives J. Lauritzen a better overview of its fleet and its movements. At the same time, they get faster response time to help crews optimize the performance of the ships.
Previously, J. Lauritzen's Performance Management Department received data from ships via email once a day. The data then had to be processed before it could be utilized. As a result, the received data was mainly used to create statistical monthly reports on ship performance, and the data was often outdated by the time it reached the business.
Delegate has provided an IoT solution that combines cloud and Business Intelligence via satellite connection, and this has been supported by Cloud consulting. The new solution provides a closer link between ship movements and the business's ability to act. The solution overall consists of two elements: An installer and an integration of a range of Microsoft IoT services, resulting in J. Lauritzen's administration continuously receiving updated information about the ships' locations and performance. The installer is designed for J. Lauritzen's own technicians to easily install the Windows Service on the ships. This greatly streamlines the process of getting the solution up and running, as installation can occur while the ships are en route. The integration includes several different Microsoft Services that process the data received by the Performance Management Department via Azure Event Hubs. The Performance Management Department can then pull data for processing in a specialized version of PowerBI. A version that is developed by the Performance Management Department with the help of Delegate's consultants, so it extensively uses PowerBI's standard functionality. The ships' data is presented on an interactive map that shows both the ships' positions and routes, as well as various marine-specific data such as wind speed, air pressure, temperature, and precipitation. The data on the map is sortable so that it can be customized to the individual user.
With a well-thought-out IoT solution, J. Lauritzen has gained a better overview of its fleet and its movements. Lauritzen’s Performance Management Department receives continuous updates on the condition of the company's ships and has an overview, through a visual Cloud Business Intelligence (BI) tool, so they can respond immediately to optimize the ships' performance.
"J. Lauritzen's IoT solution is built on a range of standard components that have been adapted to a lesser degree. This means that the 'time to deliver' has been quite short for the new performance overview, which is built as a specialization of available standard solutions."
