Future of maritime operations require ‘truly integrated operations’: Transas

Future of maritime operations require ‘truly integrated operations’: Transas
Over 70% of shipowners, operators and managers believe that it would be helpful to have shared input/operational responsibility between on-board crew and shore-based personnel at all times, according to a survey shared by Transas.

Transas, provider of high tech equipment, software applications, integrated solutions and services for the maritime industry, noted that today’s maritime industry requires realistic solutions and concepts for a modern, integrated operational infrastructure that delivers a sustainable, viable future.

Whether an autonomous ship or not the maritime sector needs an infrastructure solution that will enhance and support our human element, and enable operations, the company said.

ECDIS, ship stability, voyage planning and weather forecast data as well as fuel consumption, engine performance and bridge alarm system data should all be made available in real-time to the shore as well as on the ship.

The majority feel the crew would be willing to accept operational decisions from shore and this is just one of the options open to the maritime stakeholders if collaborating through one central operating system and repository of 'mega data'.

Frank Coles, ceo of Transas, believed that the company has “opened the way for the global maritime community to finally take advantage of truly integrated operations that exponentially improve efficiency and safety throughout.”

Coles will share THESIS (the Transas Harmonised Eco System of Integrated Solutions) in action during his presentation at SMM 2016 held in Hamburg, Germany from 6-9 September, as well as deliver critical insight and practical innovation for the future of maritime operations.
