An advanced vessel automation system, which incorporates all bridge, engine room and other processes on board.


The ongoing trend in ever-increasing digitalisation plays an important role in the maritime sector. Smart systems on board are increasingly being linked by means of smart sensors (IoT), allowing more functionality to be added to the systems. In addition, owners are asking for enhanced reliability and higher levels of availability for their ships, which also entails additional demand in terms of automation.

By means of combining standard and customised screens, an advanced technological interface is available for each customer to monitor and operate all ship systems in real time, with the option of monitoring trends and logging data points also available.
