Smart Port Challenge 2022
This year’s Smart Port Challenge offers 15 innovation opportunities that address 5 key focus areas:
- Smart Port
- Smart Ship
- Crew Safety, Training and Wellbeing
- Smart Maritime Services and Logistics
- Green Technology
Explore them below. Short videos are also available to explain the innovation opportunities. Throughout June, we brought you a series of roadshows to take an in-depth look at the challenges faced by the corporates and industry as a whole. Recordings of these sessions are available on our YouTube channel.
In addition to these innovation opportunities, start-ups can also submit proposals in an open category addressing any of the 5 focus areas. Applications are now closed.
Here are our 16 co-creators of these innovation opportunities:
We also have additional supporting corporate sponsors:
How might we attain consistent and repeatable quality in the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process so as to instill confidence and adoption in the maritime industry?
How might we create a secure and trusted repository of digital files that will facilitate efficient, on-demand and quality assured printing of marine parts?
How might we provide and maintain clean drinking water onboard vessels to protect the health of seafarers?
How might we empower vessels with DPS to make better weather-based decisions to improve performance efficiency and crew safety?
How might we better manage crew and vessel certification to improve operational efficiencies and thereby drive safety and welfare?
How might we effectively monitor and assess equipment conditions onboard vessels to optimise usage and reduce unplanned failures and operational disruptions?
How might we get better visibility of lighter boats so as to improve operational efficiency at the Lighter Terminals?
How might we endorse accurate pallet declarations so as to improve loading of ship supplies onto lighter boats?
How might we empower charterers and operators in their selection of vessels in order reduce their risk and exposure resulting from underperformance?
How might we eradicate variances in draught mark readings caused by manual visual inspection and sea conditions to reduce cargo claims?
How we might make cargo hold and tank cleaning on vessels safer and more efficient
How might we overcome the challenges that multiple interface standards present in a vessel operator’s ability to effectively stage and transmit data?
How might we accurately identify and detect the features of a shipping container, to enable successful landing of a spreader from great heights?
How might we improve the reliability of high speed signal transmission from the headblock to the cabin to allow for more timely and accurate quay crane operations?
How might we more effectively validate delivery of ship supplies for greater efficiency in ports?
In addition to these 15 innovation opportunities, start-ups with technologies or solutions that can address Smart Port, Smart Ship, Crew Safety, Training & Wellbeing or Green Technology
