In recent years in coastal shipping, it has become an urgent task to deal with the future shortage of seafarers, which is expected due to the aging of seafarers and the decrease in the number of applicants.
ClassNK has granted cyber resilience-guideline (CybR-G) notation to Tateshina, an oil tanker built by Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS) for NYK Line.
Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) and Ship Data Centre (ShipDC) have agreed to use the latter’s IoS-OP to share data received from all NYK-operated vessels equipped with SIMS, expanding the total to about 200 NYK vessels.
ClassNK has granted an Approval in Principle (AiP) to Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line) and MTI for their joint project on the concept design of an autonomous ship framework (APExS).

Digitalisation is steering the shipping industry in a new direction, some comforted by the increasing opportunities that it offers and others wary of the uncertainty that comes with it. One country embracing the waves of digitalisation is Japan. Here are five ways Japanese companies are using digital technology to deliver more efficient and safer shipping operations.
NYK, and its Group companies MTI, Keihin Dock Co, and Japan Marine Science (JMS), have announced their participation in a demonstration project being carried out by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transportation and Tourism (MLIT) to demonstrate remote operation of an unmanned ship.
The NYK Group and its Norwegian maritime IT partner Dualog have entered into a collaboration agreement with the NTT Group (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation), to work together on a proof-of-concept project to create a new shipboard Internet of Things (IoT) platform.
A new collaborative group including Japanese shipyards and the country’s most prominent shipping lines is set to work together on technologies to support autonomous shipping, sharing costs and expertise as they aim to drive the introduction of self-navigating ships by 2025, according to reports in Japan’s Nikkei business newspaper.
NYK and DNV GL have presented the first results of an ongoing maritime data centre pilot project involving the companies, which collects operational data from NYK vessels on DNV GL’s recently launched Veracity data platform to monitor vessel performance and support condition-based maintenance.
