The digital ship

The pathway to financial optimization of maritime transport is now digital - optimization of fuel by e.g. adopting the most appropriate route and speed and through predictive maintenance based on analysis of data from a large network of sensors.

We will go online via MS Teams on for this event! - you will receive the link on Monday 5. October!

Maritime transport has been a race to the limit in terms of size and propulsion. The pathway to financial optimization is now digital by - amongst others - real-time optimization of fuel consumption and transit time by adopting the most appropriate route and speed. Optimizing the ship's availability by repairing or replacing defective equipment just before it breaks down, can be achieved through predictive maintenance based on collection and analysis of sets of data from a large network of embedded sensors.


16:30        Opening by organizers, Skibsteknisk by Peter Blach, Maskinmestrenes Forening, John Koch Nielsen, Force Technology, Bjarne Mortensen, DNV-GL

16:30 - 17:00 Introduction to Marine Automation and Communication by Thomas Heldarskard-Winnerskjold, Director Automation and Dynamic Positioning, Wärtsilä Lyngsø Marine, Automation, navigation & communication solutions for marine industry.

17:00 - 17:30 Servitization – data as a service by Henrik Blach, senior consultant, 
                        Sensors and IoT are increasingly used for supervision, prevention, prediction of optimal operation and maintenance. Servitization refers to industries using their own products and sensors to offer outcome as a service, rather than a one-off sale. 

17:30 - 18:00 Digital PMS (Planned Maintenance Schemes) surveys by Bjarne Mortensen, business development director, DNV GL. 
PMS surveys may now be done digitally at shore, without disturbing the crew. An example is DNV GL’s new industry data platform – Veracity.
