A consortium of European shipbuilders has announced a new cooperative initiative to develop and demonstrate a connected vessel platform.
Supported by SEA Europe, the Shipyards’ and Maritime Equipment Association, the Code Kilo project sees Euroyards members join forces to meet the digitalisation challenges of a diverse group of stakeholders.
Ship systems currently provide large amounts of data related to equipment status, ship operations and performance. The overall purpose is to increase opportunities to reuse, combine and gain values and insights from data, allowing the operator, yard and equipment suppliers to optimise their respective activities. Enhancing the vessel digitalisation through fully-fledged integration will help achieve the sustainability and circularity goals at the core of the European maritime sector.
European shipbuilders are committed to applying their knowledge of physical system integration to improve digital integration, aiming at establishing the base for future business opportunities with IoT, Big Data and AI.
Euroyards comprises Chantiers de l’Atlantique, Damen Shipyards Group, Fincantieri, Lürssen, Meyer Werft, Naval Group and Navantia.
