MOL Teams Up with MES on Vessel Monitoring and Support

Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines has reached an agreement with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES) to jointly develop next-generation vessel monitoring and support systems for practical applications and commercialization.

The systems will be developed utilizing MOL’s operation experience and technologies as well as the experience of MES as a shipbuilder with the latest technologies, ICT, and system integrators. Short cycle data and big data will also be analyzed from various aspects.

Furthermore, MOL believes that the project would boost its efforts to achieve the “prevention of marine incidents”, the “prevention of equipment failure”, and “optimized vessel routing” through the integration of ICT related components such as artificial intelligence (AI).

MOL and MES also participate in Autonomous Ocean Transport system R&D project, selected by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transportation and Tourism (MLIT) for its fiscal year 2017 Transportation Research and Technology Promotion Program. As informed, the purpose of this project is to establish road maps toward autonomous vessels, which is expected to deliver safer and more efficient marine transportation.

The companies also invited other maritime bodies such as engine makers, diesel generators, etc. to join the project development with their innovative technologies.
