Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, MTI Co. and Japan Engine Corporation announced that they have made progress in their joint research to improve safety and optimize maintenance for marine engines, by taking advantage of operational big data.
Japanese NYK and Norwegian Partner Dualog have entered a partnership with the NTT Group, on a proof-of-concept experiment for a next generation onboard IoT platform. The experiment is focused on validating new technology, which is expected to benefit the maritime industry in sea operations.
Aiming to expand its research on autonomous shipping, Japanese Nippon Yusen Kaisha has set plans to test a remote-controlled container ship across the Pacific Ocean in 2019. The plan comes after the fatal collision of US warship John McCain with a merchant tanker on 21 August, off Singapore.
Japanese shipping companies are planning to launch autonomous ships at sea by 2025, with a hope to reduce maritime accidents resulted by human errors. Japan’s new ship models will include self-navigating system, a technology that is expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
At Nor-Shipping 2017, NYK and DNV GL presented the first results of an ongoing maritime data center pilot project. The data center collects operational data from NYK vessels on DNV GL’s recently launched Veracity industry data platform, for monitoring vessel performance and condition-based maintenance schemes.
NYK announced that it entered a strategic partnership with Dualog, with the immediate focus on pushing the boundaries for automation, the Internet of Things and for Big Data analysis. The partnership is expected to leverage the technology focus and the growing cooperation between the Japanese and Norwegian maritime industries.
Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, the Monohakobi Technology Institute and Japan Radio have jointly developed a support tool for officers to better manage and share navigational information.
NYK and its Group company, the Monohakobi Technology Institute (MTI), are jointly participating in four R&D projects which were selected by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) for “2016 Support Projects for R&D in Advanced Safety Technology of Vessels.”
NYK, the Monohakobi Technology Institute, and Japan Marine United Corporation have agreed to conduct joint research on a series of 14,000 TEU containerships.
NYK has placed an order for 5,500 technologically advanced 40-foot reefer containers
