Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) is turning to an AI solution developed by Captain’s Eye, based in Haifa, Israel, to enhance car carrier fire protection. MOL plans to install Captain’s Eye’s AI system in the cargo areas of most of its LNG-fueled car carriers to provide early fire detection capabilities. The technology will be installed on 10 vessels currently on order, with delivery scheduled for 2024 or later, and MOL will consider retrofitting current in-service vessels with the system. Captain’s Eye’s AI system sends alerts to crewmembers and onshore ship management when it detects abnormal images captured by cameras, enabling faster smoke detection.
