The research and development project MariData’s goal is to develop, improve and classify simulation-based modules for ship energy management using a carefully selected combination of state-of-the-art maritime technologies and experience as well as AI-based tools and methods for a groundbreaking product for holistic ship energy and operations management.

Together with geospatial information and a “Decision Support System” (DSS) that brings together technical, environmental and economic data, energy consumption information will be integrated into a platform that can be used both onboard the ship and shore-based by a shipping company. The platform will provide on-line simulations for decision support to the ship’s management, as well as assistance with short-, medium- and long-term forecasts and decisions related to ship operations.
