MOL, DSME Sign FSRU Digitalisation Agreement
Japanese shipowner Mitsui OSK Line (MOL) and Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering have reached an agreement for joint development of technologies and solutions for the digitalisation of floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), MOL said February 26.
“Through this collaboration, detailed operational data will be collected from FSRU and stored in a cloud-based data platform to develop applications for advanced remote operation monitoring and optimising etc. The project will enhance safe and efficient operation, which will further deepen cooperation between FSRU and shore-based facilities,” the company said.
MOL will work on this collaboration in cooperation with its Fleet Optimal Control Unified System (Focus) project intended to enhance the collection and application of FSRU operation data. MOL, Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding and Weathernews launched the Focus project in 2018.
