Latsco Shipping to leverage AI for LNG navigation safety

Latsco Shipping Limited of Greece has agreed a deal with Orca AI to implement an artificial intelligence-based navigation safety system to increase situational awareness on its liquefied natural gas (LNG) fleet.

“Orca AI is a key component in our efforts to increase the safety of our fleets,” said George Margaronis, CEO of Latsco Shipping Limited.

“As waterways are becoming more congested, we believe that Orca AI’s situational awareness navigation capabilities will enable our seafarers to identify risky situations in real-time and reduce safety events.”

The maritime avoidance collision system utilises computer vision sensors and thermal cameras to provide real-time alerts on potentially hazardous events, providing better visibility and insights into how to reduce their probability of reoccurrence in the future.

“We are thrilled that an industry leader as Latsco Shipping Limited has chosen Orca AI,” said Yarden Gross, CEO and co-founder of Orca AI.

“Greek shipping has always been a cornerstone of global sea transport, and today it leads in adopting new cutting-edge technologies. We’re delighted to accompany Latsco and Greek shipowners as they continue to guide the way at sea.”
