E-navigation in the North Sea
ACCSEAS is a new EU INTERREG North Sea projects designed to improve accessibility for maritime traffic in the North Sea region through a coordinated implementation of e-Navigation among the nations in the region. An e-Navigation test-bed will be created to demonstrate and test solutions. ACCSEAS will develop new navigation and communication concepts and the platform is designed to alleviate traffic congestion, bottlenecks and accident risks. SSPA will implement the SSPA Dynamic Predictor into the platform and explore the possibility of exchanging the information between ships and tugs. The technique will be tested in a simulator. Our nearest partners are Swedish Maritime Administration, Danish Maritime Authority and Chalmers. The project is coordinated by the British Lighthouse Authority and includes eleven partners, with emphasis on the maritime authorities around the North Sea. The Region Västra Götaland support the project.
