Kongsberg Digital has signed up the second artificial intelligence (AI) fleet performance software provider in a month to its Kognifai digital marketplace.

The move to the Norwegian technology firm's selective platform marks an important seal of approval from OrbitMI, which spun off from shipowner Stena Bulk and is aiming to attract other operators.

New York-based OrbitMI offers maritime intelligence, compliance, vessel tracking and performance applications for liquid bulk carrier operators and managers, and will soon add a dry bulk version.
