Cybersecurity In The Maritime Industry

The global shipping industry – much like air, road and rail transportation – is undergoing a technological revolution. From hull cleaning to collision avoidance systems, automation has made incredible advances in recent years. There is more to come, too. Norwegian company Yara has partnered with the engineering group Kongsberg with plans to launch the world’s first automated container ship in 2018. Rolls-Royce is also joining the fray, having revealed plans in September to build autonomous naval vessels.

No Drydock Needed

A fully loaded bulk carrier contacted Subsea Global Solutions (SGS) with a shaft seal issue. They reported that they were losing all stern tube oil into the vessel and were experiencing heavy water ingress through the forward seal system into the engine room. Thanks to a well-thought-out repair, they made it safely to their original destination and discharged their cargo - before heading to drydock, not after.
