More than 70 experts from the maritime community registered to participate in the “1st MII – Maritime Innovation Insights” at Fraunhofer CML, Hamburg on 3 May 2018.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Carlos Jahn and his team presented various maritime topics related to digitalisation in the logistics chain (focus: risk management, ports), mathematical processes to optimise decision making (risk management, crew management), big data and the European Maritime Simulator Network (EMSN) as testbed for e-navigation.
I would like to draw your attention to the topic SMARTPORT (presented by Dr. Sebastian Saxe, CIO at HPA) with their real-time navigation information for multimodal transport systems. It is worthwhile to check more details at HPA website for SMARTPORT solutions.
Our Movena Shanghai office is located at Hamburg House in the direct neighbourhood of Mr. Lars Anke, Exec. Dir., Hamburg Liaison Office and in charge of PR China “und umzu”. Business partners in Asia/Pacific interested in SMARTPORT solutions may contact him directly via Linkedin.
One of our prime cooperation partners, Mr. Marc Schmidt, Managing Partner at PCCG Point-Conception Consulting, provided insight information about risk management for vessel operation. Since new regulations in 2000 (MLC, ISM, STCW et al), the number of total ship losses decreased sharply to less than one vessel out of 770 vessels (2015). Information deriving from data sources incl. of sensors, data bases, audits etc. is fed into a risk-forecast model to deliver a vessel or fleet based risk benchmark. “Only if you know the risk you can manage the risk” as Marc says. He is one of the external Fraunhofer CML partners and member of Mr. Ole John’s team. Ole heads the group “Ship and Information Management” at Fraunhofer CML. Please contact Marc or Ole directly for more information about the first phase of this innovative research project.
Mrs. Anisa Rizvanolli, Research Associate and member of Ole’s team, focusses on SCEDAS. Mathematically optimised workforce planning can now be done in a blink of an eye. The team has considered all relevant parameters such as MLC, flag state requirements, labour law etc. in order to develop the algorithms behind the easy-to-use tool. After a brief introduction and training, the manager in charge of HR planning on board of his vessels can do his optimised planning himself. Since the first rollout recently, planning is now done for more than 60 vessels. Ship operators interested in a software license shall contact Mr. Ole John directly.
The 2nd MII – Maritime Innovation Insights at Fraunhofer CML, Hamburg, will be held on 9 May 2019.
