The digital accelerator for the maritime industry

 

Why

The maritime industry finds itself amid a perfect storm of economic stresses, regulatory changes and technological disruption. The step change needed to meet the challenges will not come from what worked yesterday, but rather from cleverly leveraging the potential of technology and digitalization.


What

Staying on top of technological development is demanding. To mitigate the massive challenges the maritime industry currently endures, there is a need for orchestration of technological development of the infrastructure onboard vessels and on land, combined with development of solutions allowing for data driven improvements to help the industry get in the game.

Raa Labs focuses on enabling the maritime industry to leverage technology efficiently, improving performance, reducing cost and meeting regulatory requirements. If that means developing new services or products, or even changing your business model, we’ll support you all the way.

Why Raa Labs?

For several hundred years, Northern seafarers ruled the seas all the way from the high North to the Mediterranean, covering thousands of nautical miles in open wooden ships. The answer to how a modest seafaring people from the edge of the map were able to achieve this is based on the combination of their superior sailing skills and technology. Their large, fast and seaworthy vessels were powered by a mighty, still highly manageable sail; the raa sail. Raa is the old norse word for the yard that held up the square sail of the viking longships. Practical and easy to sail, providing unmatched speed downwind. This sail allowed the Norsemen to range far and about, setting their mark on history.    

Raa Labs will drive your organisation in an ambitious direction, pushing solutions powered by digital technologies, as well as to contribute to shaping our industry far beyond our weight, providing a raw sail powering you into the future.
