The way forward for maritime digitalisation
One of the research projects that our experts share knowledge in, is the EU-funded project EfficienSea2. Recently this project concluded the findings from three years of research of maritime digitalisation. The project has involved 32 European partners and has developed solutions such as the Maritime Connectivity Platform in order to create a more secure and seamless data exchange in the maritime world.
At the final conference in Copenhagen in April, 200 stakeholders from the maritime industry came together to experience, discuss, and present real life solutions. Participants at the conference experienced more than 20 different demonstrations. SSPA's experts demonstrated a route optimization service available over the maritime connectivity platform and a tool, to be used in risk analysis using AIS-data to define comfort zones around ships.
- In the Efficiency2 project we have been one of the partners that has worked to digitalise the maritime world by developing services based on the new digital communication infrastructure, says Lars Markström, Project Manager at SSPA. We will continue to do research on digital solutions and to create innovative and sustainable maritime development that will benefit the maritime world, he continues.
Today, the project is completed and conclusions has been made on EfficienSea2's work on the Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP), the VHF Data Exchange System (VDES), Port Reporting Model and the many different digital services for end-users. You can find more information about the project on EfficienSea2’s website.
