Damen Shipyards Group has announced that its Triton Internet of Things (IoT) platform has received Bureau Veritas (BV) type approval certification for cyber resilience.
The solution enables the gathering of all available operational asset data from a vessel, its engines, pumps, hydraulics, alarms, and other equipment, amounting to over 10,000 signals for a single vessel, reported the shipbuilding company.
This is then communicated to crew on board and fleet managers on shore.
Ship crews can also track asset health, maintenance scheduling, and more, with this data which is presented on various on board and remote dashboards.
Triton’s receipt of type approval can be attributed to a close collaboration between Damen Digital Solutions, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Bureau Veritas.
Damen has focused on cyber security and its procedures in the development of Triton; this included hardening the gateway and implementing procedures in software and firmware updates, as well as data security at rest and transit, and a robust risk management process, Damen reported.

In January 2021, Damen delivered a new, next-generation, Damen RSD Tug 2513 to Tug Malta, Malta’s leading tug operator.
More recently, Damen reached a major milestone in its efforts to build a first fully electric tug boat by installing 2,240 batteries into the RSD-E-Tug 2313, due to be delivered to the Ports of Auckland.
