OEMs focus on data collaboration

Ship technology suppliers are aiming to submit a proposal to IMO on improving data sharing to appease growing discontent among shipowner customers. The CIMAC digitalisation strategy group – comprised of representatives from engine manufacturers, component suppliers, engineering companies, classification societies and universities – is developing a position paper to present to the Maritime Safety Committee in 2023, suggesting ways to make greater collaboration feasible to improve safety, efficiency and operational insight for ship owners. Data from ship systems can provide a holistic picture of the vessel, helping operators with everything from reducing emissions to optimizing maintenance and making navigation safer. But often incompatible systems require their own dashboards and analysis, leaving shipowners to work out for themselves how to combine data from multiple sources.
