Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology »Best practises are key, don’t dgitize inefficient processes. Take your time« Mark O’Neil, CEO, Columbia Marlow Holding the electric ship as the solution to many of the aforementioned problems from a technical perspective. While battery solutions have already proven feasible for smaller ships, ABB with partner Ballard is developing MW-sized fuel cell solutions for larger units. »Electric means more efficient, simpler, flexible, more digital and better integrated«, Lepistö said. He is convinced that the industry is not using the full potential of today’s solutions as they are rarely fully integrated. In his view, electrification is the key to unlocking the potential in all areas of maritime operations. »Electric systems allow for digitization which in turn allows for new services such as collaborative operations with manufacturers providing remote support, reducing transaction costs and avoiding down times«, he said. »It’s about connecting the human in the loop and the assets at sea.« With advanced automation and Artificial Intelligence taking over, new questions arise. Wu Sun of China Classification Society (CCS) looked into the field of legislation and liability of autonomous shipping. There are different degrees of automation in that process, ships with automated systems, remote controlled ships with crew, without crew and fully autonomous. While the first two, from a liability point of view, are more or less feasible today, the latter two need to deal with changes in liability. »Who is liable in an autonomous ship accident – the maker of the systems, the owner, the operator? And don’t forget that cyber risks need new insurance products.« In the end, the question for liability is directly linked to data ownership and responsibilities for data integrity in a future connected multi-user environment. What data can and should be shared, and how to do it? Specialists win in new world »Soon, artificial computational power will outpace human computational power« Pierre Sames, Director of Maritime Technology, DNV GL »The efficiency gap in the processes lies in the utilization of assets« Hubert Hoffmann, CIO/CDO, MSC Germany The technical solutions might also have an effect on how acompany structures will look like. Will it still be efficient to have capabilities in every aspect of a business when everybody is connecting services? Christian Roeloffs, Managing Director of Container xChange, much like MSC’s Hoffmann sees business collaboration via centralized platforms, cloud solutions or blockchain as the future. »Expect to see more specialized companies and services again,« he said, »it makes no sense to keep such very different sectors like container shipping and container equipment operations under one roof.« According to him, the way to win in the future might be to specialize, concentrate on core strengths and get rid of marginal business. »On the loser side there will be conglomerates who can play on all fields but are no experts anywhere.« Shipping should prepare for an eco-system future. Nick Danese, CEO of NDAR called on the shipbuilding industry to wake up and share information to use the full potential of swarm intelligence: »To be effective, efficient and productive, people have to know what they are doing, so we have to give them information.« He has the vision of information hubs that distribute information by demand. »It will change, when everybody can take responsibility and request the data that they need NEU FAR-2xx8 Serie Neues von den Radar-Experten Fast Target Tracking S-Band auch als Solid State verfügbar Neues Antennendesign – und Technik Wide Screen kompatibel 50 HANSA International Maritime Journal – 155.

To emphasize the urgency of a transformation, Mark O’Neil said: »Operators need to achieve OPEX savings of 25 to 30% over the next five years to stay relevant and competitive.« This would only be possible by applying new solutions and At the same time, he warned not to be to hasty with digitization: »Making the right move at the slightly wrong time is better than making the wrong move. Nothing is more disruptive than implementing the wrong IT solution.« He thinks that many big players are not that far ahead with their digitization processes – if they are ahead at all – but are rather just integrating legacy systems. »There is time. Your vision and your agenda are vital.« Companies should identify existing and future markets and strive for compatibility with the market. »Electric means more efficient, simpler, flexible, more digital and better integrated« Photos: Meyer Mikko Lepistö, Director Software and Automation Operations, ABB Marine & Ports Business With this year’s SMM motto »Trends in SMMart shipping« in mind, the Maritime Future Summit of 2016 was ahead of its time, being about »smart everything«. SMM 2020 will show, if the summit was able to set the course again. It certainly provided good guidance into the future of shipping. The challenge to get to this future really doesn’t seem to be about technology anymore. Cloud, blockchain, broadband connectivity, situational awareness, various monitoring and automation solutions, analytics etc. – it’s all there. The bigger challenge seems to be changing culture. Hoffman used a quote from economist Peter Drucker, to illustrate the situation: »Culture eats strategy for breakfast.« In fact, in can be said that digitization in a (business-) world of locked-up silos isn’t worth much. Digitization needs cooperation to unlock the potentials and cooperation needs digitization to work effectively and efficiently. This is the cultural change required, the potential is huge, according to Ulf Siwe: »Shipping carries 90% of goods worldwide, imagine the global impact that digitized solutions from this industry have.« n 9 m Marine Tender EINZIGARTIG!
