KR, HD Hyundai Global cooperate to develop carbon reduction solutions

Korean Register (KR) and HD Hyundai Global Service have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on their verification of maritime carbon reduction solutions.

The two organisations agreed to collaborate closely on the development of “shipping and maritime Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology,” a convergence of digital and carbon-neutral technologies.

Through this arrangement, HD Hyundai Global Service intends to create a carbon emissions monitoring system based on AI technology, forecasting and management solutions using APIs and data-related scenarios before and after implementing carbon reduction solutions.

KR aims to assess the accuracy of ‘OceanWise,’ HD Hyundai Global Service’s newest solution, and set objective benchmarks for the performance of carbon-reduction measures.
