The joint Autoship, AEGIS and MOSES seminar “Reduced transportation cost and lower environmental impact by autonomy in ships and ports” was successfully held in the frame of the SMM Fair on September 7th, 2022.
Take a look at the pictures and presentations from the different sessions and speakers!
Session 1: Effects of autonomy on society, businesses, and logistics
- Marco Molica Colella (PNO, AUTOSHIP Coordinator): Why autonomy in waterborne transport? – A systematic review
Linking ship and port autonomy to sustainable developments goals and concrete societal benefits.
- Kristoffer Kloch (DFDS): Leveraging autonomy to create cost effective and sustainable businesses for intra-European transportAn example of linking short sea shipping to inland waterways to create new automated logistics systems.
- Antoon van Coillie (ZULU Associates): A broader perspective on logistical and supply chain opportunities created by autonomyHow can European and International cargo transport system benefit from increased automation in ports and on ships?
- Janne Suominen (MacGregor): Reducing cost of transshipments by automation in ports and terminalsAutomation in port as an essential factor for increased use of waterborne transport in supply chains.
Session 2: Technical status, drivers, and barriers
- Ørnulf Rødseth (SINTEF Ocean): Who will be first – autonomous car or autonomous ship?Autonomous ships is a more realistic value proposition than autonomous cars, but current approval procedures may be too strict and costly. How the concept of autonomy is different for cars and ships, and other factors that favours the autonomous ship as winner given that the industry agrees on reasonable safety requirements that allows for cost-effective deployment of MASS.
- Jorge Miguel Lara Lopez (Fundación Valenciaport): Adaptation of port call process for autonomous ship in a big portThe presentation aims to conceptually analyse the implications of the call of an autonomous vessel in a large port, needs, pros and cons from an operational point of view and its implications at the level of communications and information.
- Benjamin Boyer (CCNR): Automation of inland waterway vesselsHow does IWW rules and regulations adapt to automated shipping? What is the vision of the Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR)? How is this linked to MASS developments in IMO?
