Rolls-Royce, Finferries to optimise Ship safety and efficiency

UK-based Rolls-Royce and Finnish shipowner Finferries will jointly
develop strategies and solutions to optimise the safety and efficiency of
marine operations.

This will be
undertaken through developing the technology for decision supporting systems,
the companies informed, adding that they would also demonstrate remote and
autonomous ferry operations.
Under the
collaboration agreement, the parties said their key focus will be to consider a
new research project, called SVAN (Safer Vessel with Autonomous Navigation),
whereby Rolls-Royce and Finferries will look to implement the findings from the
Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications (AAWA) research project, which
formally ended in late 2017.
Funded by
Business Finland, AAWA brought together a number of stakeholders from a myriad
of shipping industry sectors to research the commercial and technical viability
of a next generation of advanced ship solutions. Both Rolls-Royce and
Finferries were involved in the project.
“This new collaboration agreement could take safer, cleaner
shipping to the next level. Rolls-Royce will develop solutions to enhance the
safety and efficiency of marine operations in the ferry sector, which will be
demonstrated in the test platform provided by Finferries,” 
Karno Tenovuo, Senior Vice President, Rolls-Royce Ship Intelligence, said.
