According to a statement, SHI has been developing smart ship technology since 2016 for vessels such as LNG carriers and large container ships.
INTELLIMAN Ship is an integrated solution which helps operators to manage data from a range of different fields, including fleet operations and life-cycle services both on shore and on board.
Also featured as part of the system is EU-MRV and IMO-DCS software, applications which enable shippers to respond to CO2 emission reduction regulations which came into effect between January 2018 and January 2019.
