First Cyber SAFE Certified Ships Delivered

first_imgThe first ships to be classed with Lloyd’s Register’s cyber notations have been delivered to Global United Gas Carriers in Korea.Built by Hanjin Heavy Industries, in collaboration with Alpha Ori Technology, the ships have been awarded the notation Cyber (AL-SAFE) certifying the autonomous systems onboard as safe.The SMARTShip technology was installed on board Global United Gas Carriers’ new vessel, the Trammo Dietlin.Lloyd’s Register said that this is the first real example of the digital transformation in shipping – the ships will operate in an autonomous mode for selected functions using cutting edge digital technology. The new cyber-enabled features allow crew to operate ships more efficiently. This is also the first example of a ship certified to stream data into a big data platform.The autonomous systems were enabled by Alpha Ori Technology with the purpose of several systems being able to operate with a level of automation onboard three vessels to varying degrees. The aim was to minimise human error and make the operation of ships systems safe and more efficient when running in autonomous mode.Elements of the navigation, cargo and machinery systems have been certified AL2, which means that systems provide on and off-ship decision support for operators. This provides operators and shore-based support staff with instant access to operating data from these systems for monitoring and diagnostics through the cloud, with which they can make more informed decisions and respond to issues faster and more efficiently.The Air Handling Unit has been certified AL3 which means that systems that operate autonomously, but with an active human ‘in-the-loop’. The system continuously monitors operational information from fire and gas systems, cargo systems and navigational positioning systems and then uses this information to automatically adjust the unit’s operating parameters to maintain a safe and comfortable environment within the accommodation space.“From this point, the degree of autonomy on cyber-enabled ships will only grow and comprise more and more functions and reach higher and higher levels, and thanks to LR’s procedures this will be achieved safely,” Nick Brown, LR’s Marine & Offshore Director, said.last_img read more

Woods wins in Miami

first_img The American finished on 19 under par, after a final round 71, to claim his 76th PGA Tour victory and his 17th World Golf Championship title. He finished two shots clear of Steve Stricker, while Graeme McDowell, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia finished on 14 under. The final round saw a welcome return to form for world number one Rory McIlroy who finished eighth after a final round 65. McIlroy was on fire and flew up the leaderboard. The Northern Irishman began perfectly after an eagle on the first followed by birdies at five, 10, 11, 16 and 17. Former world number one Tiger Woods picked up his biggest victory since 2009 after winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami. McIlroy will make just one more start before the Masters in April, but after a solid end to the tournament he was in no mood to alter his preparation. Woods will go in to the first major of the year full of confidence after he won the event for a seventh time. The 37-year-old was firmly focused on winning in Miami. An impressive 19 footer on the second seemed to kickstart his round, and although an accurate approach on the third left him with a good shot at another birdie, his putt ended up just to the left of the hole. However, at the next he made no mistake with the putter for his 26th birdie of the week. A wayward shot on the eighth saw him in woodland before another recovery led to par. A birdie at 10 extended Woods’ lead to six, while a two-putt at 12 made little difference to the outcome. After finding the sand at 16 Woods then found the rough before holing a bogey for his first dropped shot of the round. Another poor tee shot meant little on the last as he finished with another bogey. Second-placed Stricker lost ground after a bogey on three, before moving back to 15 under with gains at five and six, while others around dropped off, Stricker upped the ante at 10 and 13. McDowell birdied the opening two, but he was in trouble after finding the bunker twice on five to drop back to 15 under. He missed a good opportunity to close the gap on Woods when a mid-range putt just missed on the eighth hole. A bogey at 11 was erased by a chip-in at 13, while a birdie at 17 was cancelled out by a horrible double bogey on the last. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
