French maritime tech company Sinay and the European Space Agency (ESA) have signed a $1.66m contract to develop a digital maritime platform.

The Digital Port Platform project consists of a hub of maritime modules to enhance port competitiveness through improved efficiency and increased sustainability.

The different modules will tackle various industry pain points: predicted time of arrival to reduce port congestion and vessel delays, real-time monitoring, port collaboration, and port business intelligence to help the smart port ecosystem collaborate in their daily activities: port authorities & operators, harbour master office and shipping companies, offshore constructors, and marine contractors.

“Gathering powerful information from ESA will allow Sinay to help maritime corporates to conciliate business efficiency with ocean sustainability” Alessio Maglio, Project & Business Manager at Sinay.

“The Digital Port Platform will play a crucial role in helping to better understand, monitor and forecast the port ecosystem. The developments targeted in the project are ambitious but necessary given the scale of the issues to be addressed,” Rita Rinaldo, Head of Projects and Studies Implementation Division at ESA

“This is another exciting milestone achieved in the maritime vertical that will help advance port operations and sustainability. We’re delighted to be able to scale-up Sinay to promote collaboration, multidisciplinary innovation and the creation of smart technology that’s having important environmental and economic impacts,” Elodie Viau, ESA’s Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications, said

The Digital Port Platform is expected to play a crucial role in helping to better understand, monitor and forecast the port ecosystem. The developments targeted in the project are ambitious but necessary given the scale of the issues to be addressed.
