Disruptive technologies drive sustainability in the shipping industry

The shipping industry’s operating context will alter significantly over the next 15 years. Cargos and markets are changing, and there are new challenges in global ocean governance. Fuel costs will become less predictable, although technological advances offer the potential for radical improvements in efficiency. The industry is coming under increased pressure to address sustainability concerns throughout their supply chains.

Towards unmanned shipping

Bjørn Kjærand Haugland, EVP & Chief Sustainability Officer DNV GL, says that autonomous shipping is a now a reality. The technology is in place and the time has come to move more operations ashore. Instead of having a crew of 15 sailing in a storm in the North Sea, people can stay in a control room on shore, where the same person could monitor and steer many ships.
