Through the MoU both sides goal to give a boost to new digital technologies such as data sharing, the creation of frameworks and standards and enhance existing services.

By working together with leading technology solution providers, alongside owners and operators we can unlock broader maritime digitalisation and build on the value these new technologies generate.

... Cristina Saenz de Santa Maria, Regional Manager for South East Asia, Pacific & India at DNV GL Maritime said.

For the records, the signed agreement is focused on the installation of Alpha Ori’s SMARTShip systems, piloting the use of digital technologies to further enhance the relationship between ship operator and class.

By deploying AOT’s SMARTShip application on a vessel, surveyors can access real-time data. The resulting advantage is that one can remotely access the health of a vessel and verify whether a ship is compliant with IMO 2020 and other regulatory requirements. This digital approach is reliable, efficient, and can improve savings.

...Capt. Rajesh Unni, Co-CEO of AOT noted.

Concluding, while the MOU implementation continues, the participants will look to cover many of the most important emerging areas for maritime digitalization, including remote monitoring and operations, the digital supply chain and predictive maintenance systems.
