Rolls-Royce signs R&D deal with ABP and Svitzer

Rolls-Royce reports that it has signed a new agreement with Associated British Ports (ABP) and global towage operator Svitzer, part of the Maersk Group, to develop a range of digitisation and ship intelligence systems for use in port operations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The tri-party Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was instigated by ABP and will look for new ways to leverage technology to improve safety and efficiency within work processes at the port.

“New technologies emerge all the time which offer us exciting, additional capabilities. ABP is always looking to make these new technologies work for us and our customers,” said Mike McCartain, ABP’s director of marine & compliance.

“Where a solution does not yet exist, we will work with companies of the calibre and expertise of Rolls Royce and Svitzer to invent them and bring them into service.”

“A sustainable future for ABP means a constant effort to be greener, safer and more efficient, so that we can continue to play a crucial role in Britain’s economy, industrial infrastructure and local communities.”{/mprestriction}
