The South Korean shipbuilder has been developing smart ship technology since 2016 and it has been applied to certain ships including LNG carriers and large container ships.

The Intelliman Ship is an integrated smart ship solution which facilitates data management from fleet operation to life-cycle service both on shore and on board with the latest ICT in a cloud data center developed by SHI.

The EU-MRV and IMO-DCS software in Intelliman Ship is an optimized solution to respond to CO2 emission reduction regulations: EU-MRV and IMO-DCS, which came into effect in January 2018 and January 2019, respectively.

“We are working to provide our customers with useful smart ship solutions. As a result, we have developed effective solutions for meeting demands of maritime environmental regulations through collaboration with DNV GL. We will continue to focus on developing safe and environmentally friendly smart ships,” said Yong Lae Shim, Vice President of SHI Ship and Offshore Research Institute.

DNV GL’s Software advisory team in Hamburg assessed the compliance of SHI’s software by remote testing the monitoring-reporting process in terms of both content and functionality. The classification society also confirmed that the software can be used as a recording and reporting tool fulfilling the requirements of the EU-MRV and DCS regulations, and is applicable to all ship types built at the SHI shipyard.
