The latest deal will see Bahri deploy the SMARTShip digital platform across a substantial part of its fleet, in addition to over 100 vessels already installed with the system.
AOT will complete the deployment of SMARTShip on the Bahri vessels over the next three months.
The platform provides a ‘live connect’ experience to ship machinery including navigation, cargo and engine control systems. With 3k to 5K data points flowing at 30 second intervals directly from control systems to AOT’s cloud, intelligent alerts, advanced analytics and insights in real time are provided by AI-enabled applications.
AOT’s contract with Bahri was finalised after the successful completion of a three-month trial of SMARTShip on one of Bahri's VLCCs.
Captain Rajesh Unni, co-ceo of AOT and ceo and founder of ship manager Synergy Group, commented: “SMARTShip uses machine learning algorithms to bring the power of AI to vessel management. This enables fuel savings, improved hull efficiency and predictive maintenance, providing owners and managers with a rapid return on investment.”
