DNV, Samsung Heavy Industries establish Remote Operation Centre

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and DNV signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at KORMARINE, committing to the establishment of SHI’s cutting-edge Remote Operation Centre (ROC) for real-time monitoring and control of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS).

The collaboration aims to create a Remote Operation Centre (ROC) for MASS, promote the future of autonomous shipping by leveraging cutting-edge technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity platforms, and ensure safe and seamless operations.

It will also investigate remote assistance technologies that support autonomous ship ideas and their practical implementations. DNV will advise SHI on its ROC concept before certifying it in accordance with the applicable requirements.
