How machine learning tackles hull fouling
As exhaust emission regulations get tighter, and fuel gets more expensive, the need for the marine industry to find more efficient ways of operating vessels is becoming ever more critical. With a large vessel using 150 tonnes or more of fuel a day, and a heavily fouled ship consuming up to 40% more...
Why do we use machine learning?
Or, to ask that question in a different way, why is operational advice from a machine learning based system so accurate? And what does this mean in practice? What is machine learning? In machine learning, we (1) take some vessel operational data, (2) train a performance model of the vessel using that data,...
Ships are fuel inefficient and we’re all part of the solution
90% of all goods sold have, at some point in their lives, spent time at sea. This is because shipping goods by sea is straightforward, efficient and economical. This, however, hides the fact that the marine industry uses a lot of fuel and vessels are big polluters. Logistics and supply chains What will...
