Ferry company Stena Line has partnered with Hitachi Europe, a subsidiary of Hitachi, to implement artificial intelligence technology on ships to reduce fuel consumption costs.

As explained, the AI technology is expected to become “an important tool” in the shipping company’s efforts to minimize environmental impact.

The partnership will see Hitachi review the existing digital architecture and advise the ferry company as it aims to become the world’s leading cognitive shipping company by 2021.

Controlling fuel consumption is vital to Stena Line’s business. By leveraging AI technologies, Hitachi will be able to identify the key factors causing high fuel consumption and advise how to make operations more efficient, the company said.

Stena Line is at the forefront of the shipping industry’s efforts to reduce its environmental footprint whilst increasing efficiency through the integration of smart technology.

“Digitalisation plays a key role in helping industries such as shipping optimise their operations for both financial performance and environmental impact. We are engaged with Stena Line on a number of strategic co-creation initiatives and we see this as an important next step in providing digital expertise to help them achieve positive business and societal outcomes,” Hicham Abdessamad, CEO of Hitachi Global Digital Holdings Corporation, Corporate Officer of Hitachi, said.

“With a structured approach and by taking continuous initiatives, the aim is for Stena Line to become a leader in sustainable shipping. We are pleased to have Hitachi on board to help us in our cognitive journey to improve fleet operation across ship and shore, providing new capabilities for safer and more sustainable ferry journeys, as well as helping improve operational efficiencies and overall vessel performance,” Rune Kleiberg, Head of digital strategy at Stena Line, commented.
