Marineworks completes Application Of Smart Ship Solution For Hmm On The World’s Largest Container Ships
As the digital transformation of the global shipping industry accelerates, the first case of applying smart-ship solution on real-operating ship has been done by order of Shipping companies, not by shipyard, in South Korea.
marineworks, a maritime ICT company, announced that “HMM’s twelve 24,000TEU ultra-large container ships have successfully loaded the smart ship solution. The solution will also be installed in the 16,000 TEU ultra-large container ships that will be delivered in 2021.”
This solution (My Fleet) first began when HMM ordered a smart ship to a domestic shipyard in 2018 since marineworks was selected as a supplier. For the first time in the shipping industry, it has become possible to monitor and control the information of equipment operation and cargo since September of 2020. It also contributed to the establishment of HMM’s fleet control center.
In addition, the smart ship solution monitors, analyzes, and converts the ship’s condition in real-time to determine and visualize the ship’s operating environment and risk level which plays a very important role in safe and efficient operation of the ship.
Mr. Sang-yong Kim, the director of marineworks said, “In order to realize the complete automation and efficient configuration of the ship’s IoT platform, not only the program development but also the optimal configuration of the ship’s integrated network, navigation/engine, alarms and cargo information are optimized to process more than 4 million cases of data per day.”
In addition, to verify reliability of smart-ship solution and meet the increased security requirements of IMO and global shippers, marineworks have conducted penetration tests for the first time in the industry with the shipyard. Simultaneously, they received Lloyd’s and Korean Register’s certification for ship cyber security and remote control technologies. This greatly contributed to the application of HMM’s IMO level 2 of the autonomous ship.
Meanwhile, marineworks was established in 2014 and successfully localized the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) for ships, which was imported more than 97% from Japan, and distributed it to major domestic shipping companies such as HMM, H-Line Shipping, KLCSM, Polaris Shipping, and SINOKOR.
Along with entering the market, they are expanding their business to the fields of ship navigation equipment, system engineering, integrated networks and ship satellite communications. In particular, it is a company that shows outstanding performance in the fields of smart ship solutions, ship management ERP, cyber security and e-Navigation based on software-based technology that is unique in the shipbuilding and shipping equipment industry.
