SDARI and Marorka partner on ‘smart ships’

The Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute (SDARI) and Iceland-based maritime technology company Marorka have signed a partnership agreement that will see the firms work together on a ‘smart ship’ concept.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The companies aim to integrate their own various technologies in the areas of maritime energy and performance management, to create efficient and highly automated ships.

“It is my pleasure to announce that this partnership with Marorka will add significant value to the development of more fuel-efficient vessels with data driven energy management and operational performance,” said Hu Jin Tao, president of SDARI.

“This will enable our customers to reduce fuel consumption with a very short payback time for the system, improve the environmental foot print by cutting emissions and optimise fleet performance giving significant financial savings and improved safety.”

“This partnership will assist SDARI in accelerating the development of a smart ship concept.”{/mprestriction}
