European shipbuilders are launching a new initiative to develop and demonstrate a connected vessel platform under a project named Code Kilo.

The project is undertaken by EUROYARDS members Chantiers de l’Atlantique, Damen Shipyards Group, Fincantieri, Lürssen, Meyer Werft, Naval Group and Navantia.

An overarching aim is to harmonize data management solutions and standards in order to meet the digitization challenges.

As explained, this project will seek full cooperation and engagement of all maritime stakeholders, including shipowners, shipbuilders, suppliers and classification societies, and is supported by SEA Europe, the shipyards’ and maritime equipment association.

Ship systems currently provide large amounts of data related to equipment status, ship operations and performance. Code Kilo is envisioned as increasing the opportunities to reuse, combine and gain values and insights from data. This will allow the operator, the yard and equipment suppliers to optimize their respective activities.

European shipbuilders added they would look at ways of establishing a base for future business opportunities with IoT, Big Data and AI.

The announcement of the Code Kilo project coincided with the launch of the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA), which will see shipping giants, Maersk, MSC, Hapag-Lloyd and Ocean Network Express create common information technology standards to make the industry more efficient for both customers and shipping lines.
