Digital solutions and data sharing are likely the key to better enforcement of the 2020 sulphur limit: Working under EfficienSea2, Danish company Litehauz has developed a solution for ships, similar to ”black box” on airplanes, able to transmit sulphur emissions data to the ships’ owner as well as relevant authorities on land.
A new digital test service is developed to facilitate the assess of tidal level and weather affecting their plans to sail challenging passageways where shallow water poses a risk. Initially, the service will cover the Sound between Sweden and Denmark. The data for the service is provided by the Danish Meteorological Institute, the Danish Geodata Agency and the Swedish Maritime Administration.
As a part of the EU project EfficienSea2, the surveillance system manufacturer Vissim has become the first operator to integrate voyage data from the ENSI-system in their own vessel traffic monitoring system, which will allow VTS centres and navigators to drastically reduce their reporting burdens.
Maritime Connectivity Platform, resulting from the collaboration between European EfficienSea2 and STM Validation projects and the Korean SMART Navigation Project, has been successfully tested at sea trials in the port of Busan. MCP, formerly known as the Maritime Cloud, aims to achieve a more connected maritime world.
The team behind the Maritime Cloud has decided to change the name of the communication framework to ‘Maritime Connectivity Platform’, to provide clarity and support e-Navigation going from testbed to real life implementation.
The European project EfficienSea2 is testing a new Smart Buoy solution, aiming to allow ships to have improved navigational services and to receive data in support of vessel operations, when reaching ports. The buoy will allow port authorities and ships to collect and share information in a completely autonomous system.
Aiming to implement smart solutions for a safe and sustainable shipping, the EU-funded EfficienSea2 project has finished a full-scale simulation of a variety of e-Navigation solutions. The simulations involved 8 navigators and took four days, at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, focusing on the human factors in e-Navigation.
A standardized guideline potentially covering all technical e-Navigation services has been agreed in an international committee under International Association and Lighthouse Authorities. The guideline can stand alone, but it is also compatible with the Maritime Cloud.
The EU project EfficienSea2 is testing the first ever system using a newly proposed standard for digitalising Navigational Warnings. When properly assessed, the new standard could be a global reality within a year and make mapping of warnings easier. The EU-project, led by the DMA, will make it easier for seafarers to get access to information and navigate safely.
The EfficienSea2 project, which is led by the Danish Maritime Authority, is now ready to demonstrate its first results. At a coming conference, beta releases of some of the solutions will be launched.
