CONNECTED SHIP

Supporting a more sustainable, digitalized and connected maritime industry.

ABOUT
The Connected Ship project is the result of a nordic cluster cooperation between MDC (Maritime Development Center) in Denmark, Mobile Heights and SMTF (Svenskt Marintekniskt Forum) in Sweden and VASEK (Vaasa Region Development Company) in Finland.  

The project will demonstrate a digitalization platform on board a ship by the utilization of technology, platforms and experiences from smart city projects combined with maritime industry control systems, communication protocols and environmental prerequisites. This will also prepare the ships for future interaction with the smart society (harbors, trucks, cargo, passengers and other smart micro-systems). One platform which horizontally collects and controls non-critical data, handles data access policies and where data analytics, AI and automation and other services can connect to get access to data and devices/control systems.

The project will also develop business models that give incentives to the involved companies to share data and thereby support startups and smaller companies who can build new services. This will both create new business opportunities and increase entrepreneurship as well as boost competitiveness among companies in the Nordic countries. 

The project will support a more connected maritime industry.
