The EU-funded maritime digitalisation project EfficienSea2 has drawn to a close, with the final conclusions from the three-year project presented to stakeholders at a final conference in Copenhagen.
Leadership of the Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP), developed as part of the EfficienSea2 digital navigation support programme in Europe, is to be passed over to the Korean SMART Navigation Project following the completion of the final EfficienSea2 conference in Copenhagen in April.
The Efficiensea 2 project has begun tests of a new digital ‘Under Keel Clearance Service’ to support mariners in assessing the impact of tidal levels and weather on passage plans that include shallow water.
Vissim and the Finnish Transport Agency, backed by the EU-funded EfficienSea2 project, have partnered on a digital route sharing mechanism to allow different VTS systems in the Baltic to efficiently share information.

The first full sea trials of the Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP), created via a partnership between the EfficienSea2 and STM Validation projects in Europe and the Korean SMART Navigation Project, have been successfully completed with a demonstration of the technology in Korea.
The team behind the Maritime Cloud project, a joint initiative of three global e-Navigation projects, has decided to change the name of its information exchange network to the Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP), to more accurately describe its objectives as it moves from testbed to real life implementation.
The European project Efficiensea2 has joined forces with Royal Arctic Line to complete the first-ever test of how space weather in the Arctic region influences the full range of a vessel’s communication channels.
The EU’s EfficienSea2 project has announced that it is testing a system for digitalising Navigational Warnings that it intends to propose as a global standard, based on the International Hydrographic Organization’s (IHO) S-124 draft standard for Navigational Warnings.
