Software provider Sea, a technology spin-off from the Clarksons Group now operating as an independent company, has signed a new Knowledge Partnership Agreement with the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, which will see the organisations work together in trying to reduce the environmental impact of the maritime industry.
“Reliable data empowers us to make informed decisions. With Sea, the centre will get important insights into global fleet operations which can help us fast-track the development and implementation of green corridors, technology projects, and progressive regulatory frameworks,” said Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping.
As a knowledge partner, Sea will provide access to its pre-trade intelligence and analytics tool that processes approximately 69 billion AIS data points annually, including visibility of activity across ports and vessel deployments.
The tool can also provide emissions evaluations for analysis of green corridors and waiting times and fleet speed developments, in order to estimate emissions reduction potential.
“The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is the leading provider of the innovation and collaboration the shipping industry needs to achieve our decarbonisation targets,” said Peter Schroder, CEO at Sea.
“Our platform will accelerate the centre’s work in enabling future solutions, concepts, and standards – including modelling viable decarbonisation pathways. Sea’s purpose is to power better decisions to enable sustainable shipping, so we’re proud to be joining this powerful alliance of global organisations. We look forward to working as a collective to develop the full zero carbon maritime value chain from well to wake.”
