Sweden, Denmark and South Korea have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to implement common test beds for future e-Navigation solutions, with the aim of promoting the development of new technologies for safe and efficient transport at sea.
The government of South Korea has unveiled plans to invest heavily in e-Navigation, with approximately $200 million earmarked for related projects under the new strategy.
The London P&I Club notes that the timetable for mandatory implementation of ECDIS is advancing and insists on the importance of familiarisation training on specific equipment and proper use of the technology.
ACCSEAS, a project funded in part by the European Union, is developing e-navigation tools to help mariners navigate safely in the North Sea region, particularly in relation to the expected growth in wind farms in the sea area in the coming years.
