2023 Was a ‘Breakthrough Year’ for Offshore Digitisation

Marius Five Aarset, CEO of Miros, Is a Key Driver in the Ocean Insights Technology Company’s IT Journey to Enhance Renewable Energy Use

When Marius Five Aarset became Miros’ CEO at the start of 2023, he set out three key aims for the year for the global oceans insights experts to work towards — to develop the company into renewables and support the acceleration towards net zero goals, to further boost Miros’ cloud technology and modern as-a-service business model and to translate accurate measurements of the ocean surface into actionable information. 

“For the last 12 months, we have been laser-focused on developing our product suite and business models so that they can better help to drive enhancements in the marine and energy sectors, particularly in offshore vessels and offshore wind,” Aarset explained. “We have had great success in this endeavour, and it will continue to be an essential priority for Miros as we move into 2024.” 

Offshore wind an evolving part of the energy sector 

With a clear focus on renewable energy hitting headlines plenty in 2023, offshore wind played — and continues to play — a vital part in working toward embracing greener energy sources and propelling the industry on this particular sustainability strategy.

“The industry is moving,” Aarset added. “More than ever before developers are more eager to adopt solutions and services for optimising operations and maintenance. Beyond that, digital business models are now being embraced and appreciated for the value they add across a wide range of industries and regions.” 

Miros’ wave and current measurement technology is continuing to inform operations across the world, whether that be vessels and offshore wind projects in Europe or oil and gas operations in Brazil. For Miros, this is expected to grow from 2024 onwards as the industry becomes more aware of the value of real-time measurements over forecasts.

In a bid to get ahead of the curve — or wave, in Miros’ case — the company is laser-focused on bringing next generation wave and vessel motion prediction to market, with key offshore customers being early adopters of the technology. It is a technology development that will take shape further in 2024. 

Jonas Røstad, Miros’ CCO, said: “Unquestionably, 2023 has been a real breakthrough year for the adoption of digitalisation in the offshore space, with a real uptake for our as-a-service solution.”
