South Korean conglomerates Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) are ready to roll out number of ‘smartship’ technologies based on the success of a joint research effort into IoT (Internet of Things) technology.

The companies have researched and developed ‘smart’ solutions for in-service and shore-based platforms for fleet operation and the development of ship material warehouse automation system.

“The smartship solution to support the optimal operation of ships has already been extensively researched and developed, and Hyundai Merchant Marine plans to apply it to seven 23,000TEU class super container ships ordered last year to increase operational efficiency. The ships will be delivered sequentially from the second quarter of 2020,” said a spokesperson for the HMM.

A representative of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering said: "This joint research is expected to contribute to the development of cutting-edge smartship technology as well as win-win development with the domestic shipping industry.”

DSME, which in July received a cybersecurity top grade certification from Lloyd's Register of Shipping, has inked a technical agreement with enginebuilder WinGD for the development of digital engine solutions
