The global marine cluster is in major transition to smart and green shipping. The pressure and need for the decarbonization, digitalization and automation in shipping are high from regulatory, environmental, economic and technological perspectives, which poses challenges and opportunities to the cluster. It is imperative for Finland since the hi-tech and marine industries are two of the mainstay industries for the country.
This book is one of the activities to disseminate and showcase the Finnish expertise, practices and on-going efforts towards smart and green shipping, It also acts as the proceedings of the first public seminar of the INTENS project, which is a national collaborative research and innovation action striving to advance and promote the digital transformation and collaboration in the Finnish marine industries and beyond. It features a collection of extended abstracts, concerning simulations, algorithms, technologies and practical applications of major digital transformation methods, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Digital Twins, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Cloud Computing, specifically to the energy efficiency improvement and emissions reduction of ship energy systems. It highlights the prominent roles of both innovations and collaborations in the digital transformation and decarbonization of global shipping.
