Norwegian government’s innovation fund will provide two years’ funding to new project for the development of a cyber-risk management system for ships, initiated by Japanese shipping company NYK and maritime IT innovator Dualog. The funding will enable NYK to carry out cyber security trials on 50 NYK-operated vessels.
Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (K LINE), Mitsui O.S.K Lines, Ltd. (MOL), and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) have started sharing of operational data acquired from the monitoring system installed in their container ships with their charter, Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE), through the IoS-Open Platform (IoS-OP) promoted by Ship Data Center Ltd. (ShipDC).
Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK Group), the Japanese shipping company, has announced the delivery of a methanol carrier, Takaroa Sun, equipped with a two-stroke dual-fuel engine technology that enables the vessel to be powered by methanol.
NYK conducted, what it claims to be, the first autonomous navigation trial for a large commercial ship under the Interim Guidelines for Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships by the IMO.
NYK has become the first Japanese shipping company to realize a carbon-neutral voyage by offsetting 5,000 tons of CO2, as the company’s environmental car carrier ‘Aries Leader’ completed a journey between Japan and the Middle East.
NYK Bulk & Projects Carriers, part of Japanese NYK Group company, has signed a contract with Nanjing Jinling Shipyard, part of the China Merchants Group, to build two next-generation energy-saving heavy-lift vessels, to respond to the demand for transporting cargoes such plants, wind-turbine blades and equipment.
Japanese shipping company NYK welcomed 35 students and their professor from the Netherlands’ Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) on July 30 to examine the group’s initiatives for “Digitalization and Green,” the theme of the company’s medium-term management plan.
Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) partnered with Philippines-based conglomerate Transnational Diversified Group to present an electronic money platform in favour of seafarers, called ‘MarCoPay’, adapting features of Accenture and Citi. The smart platform, located in Manila, is equally owned by NYK and TDG.
NYK informed that it has concluded a contract with Japan Marine United Corporation to construct a next-generation energy-saving bulk carrier. After delivery in 2021, the ship is planned to transport raw materials for JFE Steel Corporation under a long-term charter contract between NYK and JFE Steel.
CDP, investment research provider, launched a report, ranking 18 of the largest publicly listed shipping companies, representing $62bn of market capitalisation, on business readiness for a low-carbon transition.
