ABS and Akselos partner to advance digital twin technology

ABS is teaming up with Akselos, a specialist in digital twin technology, to explore how modelling and simulation can enhance the application of digital technologies to maritime assets.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Akselos’ numerical method is used to create many of the digital twins on the market today.  Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has limitations modelling large-scale assets with the fidelity needed to power next generation digital services. Akselos’ patented Reduced Basis FEA and ABS’ digital knowledge are expected to deliver new digital twin techniques that support improved asset performance.

“Leveraging Akselos’ capabilities to benefit the maritime and offshore industries is another example of how ABS continues to lead industry innovation,” said Matt Tremblay, ABS Senior vice president of global offshore.

“Digitisation and connectivity is transforming maritime and offshore and ABS is at the forefront, helping clients capitalise on the potential of these technologies to operate more safely, securely and responsibly.”

Mat Podskarbi, vice president at Akselo, commented: “ABS is a perfect partner to deliver unparalleled value to our clients. We are very excited to be working with industry leaders to bring cutting edge technology and combine it with industry expertise to provide a full solution to the market.” {/mprestriction}

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
