VesselMan chief executive Glenn Edvardsen and chief operating officer and founder Stig Linna estimate that shipowners globally are forced to carry out about 20,000 or more dry-dockings, costing in the region of $75bn.

So they see the cloud-based software for dry-docking of their Oslo-based technology company, which has already signed up shipowners with around 300 vessels in total, as a digital “no-brainer”: It simplifies, organises and cuts costs either for single projects or for entire fleets simultaneously.
