One Sea is a high-profile ecosystem with a primary aim to lead the way towards an operating autonomous maritime ecosystem in the Baltic Sea by 2025. The Finnish collaboration gathers together leading marine experts and is a strategic combination of top research, state-of-the-art information technology and business. The work began in 2016, and the aim is to create an environment suitable for autonomous ships by 2025.
Digitalization of the marine environment
Ship owners and operators should consider when to take advantage of the lower capital and operating expenditure – with the better efficiency, reliability, safety and sustainability –that digitalization has brought into other areas of business and industry.
Marine industry suppliers and shipyards are actively looking for opportunities to be the first to offer ship owners the latest competitive edge of digitalization. The companies and organizations collaborating in the ecosystem are forerunners in their respective fields and the knowledge they share sets them apart from other likeminded projects. The ecosystem ensures a well-researched, tested and highly capable autonomous shipping network.
The co-creation ecosystem will also set the course for new industrial standards. With the leadership, participation and steering from the One Sea Autonomous Maritime Ecosystem, the new standards will correspond with the targets of minimizing accidents, decreasing the environmental footprint of marine traffic, and advancing possibilities for new commercial ventures.
