World First Autonomous Transoceanic Voyage of a Large Merchant Ship

World First Autonomous Transoceanic Voyage of a Large Merchant Ship

Avikus, a subsidiary of HD Hyundai, has successfully carried out autonomous navigation of a large ship across the ocean, becoming the first company in the world to accomplish such a feat. In this ocean crossing, the Prism Couragr equipped with HiNAS 2.0 was operated autonomously on the optimal routes, increasing the fuel efficiency by around 7 percent while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by about 5 percent. Also, the system accurately recognized the locations of nearby ships during operation to avoid collision about 100 times.

Carbon Dioxide-Sensing Underwater Glider

Carbon Dioxide-Sensing Underwater Glider

Globally, the pH of the ocean is decreasing as humans burn coal, oil and gas. When carbon dioxide from these activities is absorbed by the ocean, it affects the ability of marine organisms to build and maintain their shells and may also change the behavior of some fish.

Electric Boats & Ships: Markets & Technologies Update

Electric Boats & Ships: Markets & Technologies Update

This IDTechEx premium article provides an update on electric leisure boating and electric ship markets in 2022. Drivers and data behind the recent surge in leisure boating sales are explained, with breakdowns by power class and commentary on future expectations. In the commercial and industrial (C&I) shipping sector, ferries have long been the low hanging fruit and remain the most common electric vessel type in-service, but regulations are driving change. Behemoth battery packs installed on a small number of giant sea-going vessels are expected to take over and dominate maritime battery demand within ten years.

Milestone in Battery-Powered, Zero-Emission Transport for Ships

Milestone in Battery-Powered, Zero-Emission Transport for Ships

Current Direct is demonstrating a swappable battery solution for powering inland waterway vessels, with one or more lithium-ion batteries installed in a swappable container, or e-house. Project estimates indicate that the use of swappable batteries connected to an energy-as-a-service platform could reduce European water transport emissions by 482 000 metric tonnes of CO2 equivalents each year.
