Automation, digitization and integration drive maritime industries now more than ever. The maritime infrastructure is more reliant on cyber technology. Consequently, cyber security has been a major cause of alarm in maritime industry.
Today’s global maritime sector is increasingly dependent on digitization, operational integration, and automation. The widespread and rapid implementation of IT systems and internet communications for ships at sea
The world economy is heavily dependent on maritime transport, as most of the international trade is carried out by sea. Delay in shipping can result in severe financial loss, especially for the management team in the distribution channel.
Cybersecurity refers to the technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect an organization’s intellectual property, customer data, and other sensitive information from unauthorized access by cybercriminals.
Ballast water has been an integral component of the ship’s stability. It reduces stress on the hull, balances off for the weight loss due to consumption of water and fuel, provides better maneuverability with sufficient vessel draft, including ship propeller immersion, and also helps in improving living conditions of the crew aboard by reducing vibrations and uncontrolled vessel’s movements.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has developed many international conventions to protect the safety of the crew, cargo, and the environment. Nonetheless, maritime accidents still happen resulting in losses of lives, property, and damage to the marine environment.
Today one of the most-discussed topics in the shipping industry is that of “sustainability.”
There is a growing awareness in the maritime world about the need for sustainable shipping and the various ways to implement the same. While we are aware of the large-scale impact sustainability can have, the advantage of a sustainable future on a personal level is still unfathomable.
The presence of hazardous substances on ships is widespread and it is questionable whether they will be eliminated as they are essential for the construction and maintenance of a ship.
An IHM gives insight into the presence of dangerous substances on board a ship and thus minimizes the risks to the health of employees and the environment.
As discussed earlier, the presence of hazardous substances on ships is widespread and it is questionable whether they will be eliminated as they are essential for the construction
