Smart & Digital Photo: ABB Mikko Lepistö, ABB, asks how shipping companies and ports should position themselves in disruptive markets building competitive advantage through lower costs. Ulf Siwe is one of those who strive to make shipping more efficient and safer from an authority point of view, introducing new and smart technology to the sector. Siwe is the leader of the Swedish Maritime Administration’s project Sea Traffic Management and has titled his presentation »Beyond Sea Traffic Management – a vision for future shipping«. The EU-funded STM project aims to standardize information exchange and enable interoperability between ships’ and ports’ systems. By providing vessels with the ability to see each other’s planned routes, navigators also can see how surrounding vessels influence their own voyage. Using these data, other services would be able to produce valuable information and offer advice to vessels on their routes. Currently the validation phase is running to demonstrate the concept in largescale tests. Ultimately, standardised information sharing will be a key element in the logistics network and have a significant impact on trade flows and business models, the people behind Sea traffic management think. Ulf Siwe of the Swedish Maritime Administration is going to share his »vision for future shipping« Autonomy arrives Photo: Sjöfartsverket A few years ago, autonomous shipping seemed to many like a castle in the air, that only not so down-to-earth enthusiasts dreamed about and wasted money on – let alone the danger for traditional seafarer’s jobs, that many saw. Today, the maritime world has seen the first real world remote and autonomous operations of vessels. 32 HANSA International Maritime Journal – 155. Jahrgang – 2018 – Nr. 9

Smart & Digital Photo: CCS Wu Sun of classification society CCS, examines technical and legal aspects of autonomous shipping Photo: NDAR Nick Danese of NDAR sees design and production processes change through 3D printing and »smart factories« Numerous research institutes and companies are currently conducting intense research into autonomous shipping, authorities in a growing number of countries have established dedicated test areas at sea or are planning to do so. According to the SMM Maritime Industry Report (MIR), one third of responding decision-makers in shipping companies believe that unmanned ships can realistically be expected to be in commercial use within the next 20 years. The afore-mentioned initial tests have proven that the technology is basically available – only regulation seems to lag behind, partially stemming from the time when ships still used sails. So, who will be liable if something goes wrong with an unmanned vessel? In his speech »Autonomous shipping – legislation and liability« Wu Sun from the Chinese Classification Society CCS will examine the technical and legal aspects. What else is on the horizon ship technology-wise? The Japanese National Maritime Research Institute (NMRI) has conducted a comprehensive research project. Its scientific director Kohei Matsuo will present the results. The »Technology Roadmap to 2050« will provide some insights into the changes innovative technologies will bring about for both, the shipping and shipbuilding segments. Under the aegis of the Japan Ship Technology Research Association (JSTRA), the scientists studied innovative technologies from a variety of industries and countries. New technologies from all sectors – some untested so far, some already successfully deployed – might turn out Davits Cranes Aftersales Industry HANSA International Maritime Journal – 155.
