Autonomous Shipping Initiative for European Waters

Descripción del proyecto

Lanzar la próxima generación de barcos autónomos en Europa

Aunque Asia ha dominado la industria de la construcción naval durante varias décadas debido a los costes inferiores de fabricación, Europa ha mantenido el liderazgo en la cuota de mercado en buques especializados y de gran calidad. El proyecto AUTOSHIP, financiado con fondos europeos y que cuenta con el apoyo de la experiencia tecnológica e industrial de las principales empresas marítimas europeas, tiene como objetivo desarrollar y probar dos barcos con autonavegación como prototipos para una flota de buques de nueva generación totalmente autónomos. El sistema incluye el paquete tecnológico y la red de control del litoral necesario para la navegación autónoma y la protección de las comunicaciones. Se llevarán a cabo dos pruebas piloto para probar el transporte de mercancías a lo largo del corredor báltico. El proyecto fortalecerá el sector marítimo europeo mediante el lanzamiento de un mercado valorado en miles de millones de euros, la creación de empleos altamente cualificados y un transporte marítimo ecológico más seguro.

Objetivo

While the shipbuilding market has been advantaging Asian lower-cost manufacturing in the last decades, AUTOSHIP will build around two EU industrial market and leading technology providers, such as Rolls Royce and Kongsberg, to create a stronger European cluster able to thrust a market worth Billions of Euros in the next decade, bringing new high-skilled jobs and a safer and greener transport in Europe.
AUTOSHIP will build and operate 2 R&A vessels and their needed shore control and operation infrastructure, reaching and going over TRL7. Testing will take place during two pilot demonstration campaigns addressing goods mobility from the Baltic Corridor to a major EU seaport and hinterland, which are most relevant areas with growing waterborne transport market demand in EU.
Doing so, it will speed-up the Next Generation of Autonomous Ships, by demonstrating in real environment Short Sea Shipping and Inland Water Ways autonomous vessels. The technology package will include full-autonomous navigation, self-diagnostic, prognostics and operation scheduling, as well as communication technology enabling a prominent level of cyber security and integrating the vessels into upgraded e-infrastructure. In parallel, digital tools and methodologies for design, simulation and cost analysis will be developed for the whole community of autonomous ships.
AUTOSHIP will help ship operators/owners to improve the economy of scale of their investments, to effectively gain competitiveness and renew their fleets, making them more competitive to replace road transport.
The project’s ambitions will leverage on advanced KETs, solid industrial, investment and business worldwide, participation in all major stakeholders’ organisations. The high ambition is to deliver the technology on the market in 5 years boosting ocean and intercontinental unmanned shipping. It is an ambition with a solid base in the involved value-chain and in the financial and commercial commitment discussed in this proposal.
