A specialist offshore wind vessel monitoring and performance platform has raised €11m ($11.6m) from venture capital providers and other investors to develop its digital systems for wider shipping markets.

Paris-based Spinergie, which was set up in 2016 and launched its Smart Fleet Management system last year, already works with wind farm vessel managers and charterers such as Orsted, GE, Boskalis and Nexans.

It aims to use the funds to deepen its growth in offshore wind and expand into other shipping sectors.
