Airbus and Wilhelmsen Ships Service have entered into a strategic collaboration to drive the development of shore-to-ship drone delivery to one of the busiest ports in the world, Singapore. The announcement was made on the sidelines of Posidonia exhibition in Athens earlier his month.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service announced that it will participate at Nor-Shipping 2017, where it will unveil its augmented reality project, an interactive tool that enables visitors to view the company’s latest products and systems, inside and out. Visitors will be able to download a reader app to their phones and scan a printed image to unlock the AR system.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service’s agency team will participate at this year’s Nor-Shipping conference, in Oslo and Lillestrøm, Norway, in the Disruptive Sustainability hall, where it is going to unveil delivery of agency essentials via drone.
There are a host of issues, which can arise with both traditional heavy fuels and modern low sulphur distillates that, if left unchecked, cause significant problems in the engine room. Wilhelmsen Ships Service is urging ship operators to make on board fuel testing an operational necessity.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service has launched a new device which reduces the risk of boiler failure, removes the need for regular, often inaccurate testing by crew, and offers a connectivity that enables on- and offshore data sharing.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service offers a new ‘canal transit’ solution to ensure that its customers’ vessels pass through the new Panama and Suez Canals with the optimum efficiency, speed and safety.
WSS has provided essential Maritime Logistics support to the World Food Programme, handling 4000 metric tonnes of date shipments from its base in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The dates, which have proven health and nutritional benefits, will supplement the diets of vulnerable people in countries across Africa and the Middle East.
WSS has launched a new agency model giving shipowners the opportunity to use their existing business relationships and work with a ships agent they already know and trust. This upgrades the current tradition where the shipyard chosen to undertake the dry-dock also nominates the agent based on their own preferences.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) says that ship operators who rely on a myriad of companies for their global bunkering needs are wasting time, money and energy, with no guarantee of standardised quality of products and services. In an industry defined by tight margins and cost constraints this approach, WSS believes, is ultimately bad for business.
