Lloyd’s Register (LR) has issued a global call for partners active in the area of innovative digital technologies related to the safety and performance of marine vessels.
- Acquisition of the SEASAFE portfolio of software solutions, which specialises in real-time data management of on board loading and stability for vessels and offshore structures.
- Collaboration with QinetiQ to deliver world-class cyber security services.
- Strategic partnership with QiO, a fast-growing Industry 4.0 company, whose data platform and cloud enabled solutions are transforming how big data analytics improve clients’ operational effectiveness and reduce risks.
- Significant investment in Hamburg-based ship management software provider Hanseaticsoft, which provides modern fleet management software solutions to optimise workflows in shipping companies, offering new perspectives on processes and increasing business performance.
London International Shipping Week 2017, 11-15th September, has again focused the spotlight on the need for the industry to consider ‘Tomorrow’s Maritime World’. In particular, how can we build an efficient and innovative maritime business sector that is able to solve the known and unknown challenges of tomorrow?
LR sees that more rapid and effective innovation is required, in particular to address the following:
b. Optimise vessel and fleet performance
c. More effectively manage the dual pressure of increased performance while striving for higher reliability and safety
d. Harness the exponential growth of data to give a more holistic view of ships as critical, connected components within the global supply chains which they serve
