A new digital test service could make it easier for mariners to assess how tidal level and weather affect their plans to pass through challenging passageways where shallow water poses a risk. Initially, for testing purposes, the service covers the Sound between Sweden and Denmark.
Maritime digitalization carried out in the European project EfficienSea2 has enabled effective route sharing between different VTS systems in the Baltic Sea. It has the potential to drastically cut the reporting effort for the ship’s crew, while offering authorities a better ability to ensure safe traffic at sea.

At its 65th session, the IALA Council adopted a new specification guideline for digital services in the maritime domain. Based on input from EfficienSea2, the new guideline will help ensure that the best digital solutions work across different oceans and different equipment.
Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP) will be a platform for new business opportunities through an introduction of standards and interoperability. Also, support from international organisations is crucial, a workshop dedicated to MCP concluded.
In order to achieve a more connected maritime world, the European projects EfficienSea2 and STM Validation joined forces with the
The EU funded project EfficienSea2, working to boost digital data exchange in the maritime domain, has announced that they will host a final conference in Copenhagen on 5-6 April 2018. The conference will give the participants a chance to gain insights into the future of e-Navigation and digital shipping.
A number of partners in EfficienSea2 spent last week supporting the IMO’s and the IHO’s work on data modelling. The ambition is to boost the use of e-Navigation and lower administrative burdens through more harmonization of standards.
The team behind the Maritime Cloud has decided to change the name of the communication framework. The new name, Maritime Connectivity Platform (MCP), has been chosen to provide clarity and support e-Navigation going from testbed to real life implementation.
