Reducing the energy demand of ships
52°North was pleased to join the virtual MariData kickoff meeting on December 17, 2020. The project’s aim is to reduce the energy demand and hence fuel consumption of cargo ships. To achieve this, MariData will model and analyse a ship’s energy demand based on the environmental and physical conditions. These models will be incorporated into a routing to deliver goods on time along the path with the smallest energy demand.
We look forward to developing comprehensive technologies for energy efficient machine learning based (ML-based) routing alternatives. As of now, we have initiated the MariData GeoPlatform’s requirements analysis and collated modelling approaches. First concepts and options are already under evaluation for their suitability.
This project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
