HMM AND SAMSUNG HEAVY INDUSTRIES TO DEVELOP SMART SHIPS
"HMM has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to develop smart ship
According to a statement, under the MoU, HMM and SHI will
collaborate in the research, development and innovation in the field
of smart ship solutions.
The MoU mainly covers the development of eco-friendly
technologies applicable for smart ships and the enhancement of
technological competence related to the digitalisation of ships.
As part of this partnership, HMM has adopted 'SVESSEL', the most
advanced smart ship solution developed by SHI.
The cloud-based 'SVESSEL' has been applied to five out of twelve
24,000 TEU mega containerships delivered to HMM this year. HMM will
test operational data on its own container vessels.
An HMM official said: "Both digitalisation and
decarbonisation have become integral factors on the pathway to
sustainable growth. HMM has concentrated on the exploration of new
technologies for the future and has actively participated in various
discussions with the parties concerned."
"We look forward to taking this partnership to the next
level with great synergy."
Additionally, HMM is preparing to operate a 'Smart Ship Control
Centre' that enables to monitor the safety and efficiency of ships
in real time based on an extensive range of data including cargo
information, service routes, locations, ocean weather and vessel
The centre is scheduled to be in full operation from
mid-September this year.
