SHI(Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd), a leading provider of the low carbon emission ship in the world and one of the best solution provider for autonomous ship design in Korea, says an article published on marketscreener.

Dynamic positioning and digitalization

KM(Kongsberg Maritime) is a global marine technology company providing innovative and reliable technology solutions for all marine industry sectors; automation, safety, manoeuvring, navigation, dynamic positioning and digitalization, as well as energy management, deck handling and ship design services.

Net zero emission

Focus on development of increased safety and efficiency against a traditional design and meet the transition to net zero emission on the journey towards autonomous large scale LNG carriers.

Strategic partner

SHI and KM desire to establish a collaboration building on SHI and KM’s long history, where KM has been a strategic supplier to SHI.

SHI’s role will be system integrator with overall design responsibility, while KM will be responsible for the integrated solution designs and have the role as a strategic partner.

Advanced digital technology

Both parties agree to enter into a Joint Development Project Agreement(JDA) to develop a design for next generation LNG Carrier with more advanced digital technology and take a very significant step to the future.

The project target to improve safety and efficiency through use of autonomous, remote, and low emission technology. To ensure realization of the design, the Parties target a competitive a solution towards a LNG Carrier design.

Innovation in the maritme sector

Lisa Edvardsen Haugan, President of Kongsberg Maritime, said “We are pleased to announce our Joint Development Project Agreement to develop the next generation LNG Carrier with advanced digital technology, as we take a significant step towards the future of maritime transportation.
