Smart “Robot Containers” to Carry Aquaculture Products

A group of Norwegian graduates have developed smart “robot containers” with cooling systems that can sail to ports without any human interaction, classification society DNV GL informed.

The graduates developed SEAtrue, a supply chain for offshore distribution of aquaculture products. The consumer application TraceEat sends information about consumer preferences to the digital platform Veracity, which enables best possible use of resources. The seafood is transported in autonomous smart “robot containers” which employ sophisticated cooling techniques to extend shelf life.

The self-propelled containers are released from the processing vessel and either positions itself for pick up by a designated container ship or sails directly to a nearby port. That way, transportation by sea becomes more effective and efficient.

“SEAtrue is a cutting-edge supply chain system that allows for optimal distribution and lower emissions. Moreover, it adjusts production to meet demand and thereby enhance a sustainable aquaculture industry,” project manager Ole Johan Lønnum, a marine technology graduate at NTNU, said.

Presented at DNV GL’s Høvik headquarter, the solution “can revolutionise production and distribution of aquaculture products,” the classification society said.
