The AI model will be developed in cooperation with Hitachi. The model will present the most fuel efficient way of operating a vessel on a particular route, and will be supporting captains and pilots. If the model is successful, it will contribute significantly to achieving the annual goal of reducing fuel consumption onboard by 2.5%.
As Lars Carlsson, Head of AI on Stena Line informed, the model will run a large number of scenarios before proposing the most optimal route and best fuel optimization settings during the trip.
The goal of the project is to create such a model that can provide an ultimate decision base for the captain and officers onboard when planning a trip. In addition, the model can also contribute to knowledge transfer to the next generation.
