STANDARDIZATION, DIGITAL ADOPTION AND AUTOMATION
The educational initiative Isalos.net
in cooperation with SNAME NTUA Greek Student Section organized the
event with subject: ‘’ Ships of future: Standardization, digital
adoption and Automation.’’
The event took place on June 16th, for the celebration of Greek Merchant Navy Day.
Hosted at Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, the meeting aimed to
establish a dialogue between students and professionals about the
evolution of marine technology and the "Automated Ships".
Particularly, the speakers referred to the advantages of automated
ships that will bring a technological revolution in the shipping
industry over the next decades, focusing on increasing the vessels’
efficiency and in fact to offer higher benefits to the shipping
companies which invest in such technologies.
They pointed out that the vessels could be autonomously operated
by advanced systems on board, while the monitoring and controlling will
be executed by an operator in a shore control center.
In conclusion, all of them ensured the audience that the existence of seafarers will always remain necessary.
