Rolls-Royce, TCOMS sign MoU
Rolls-Royce has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Technology Centre for Offshore and Marine, Singapore (TCOMS), as part of its work to develop smart ship technologies.
Rolls-Royce is working to develop remote controlled and autonomous ships technologies with the goal of seeing a remote controlled ship in commercial use by the end of the decade.
The company's agreement with TCOMS will research into technologies including smart sensing, digital twinning and integrated modelling, which it considers essential to the development of future marine data based solutions. These developments will be applied to technology demonstrators to show how they can be used by specific ship types.
Kevin Daffey, Rolls-Royce, director engineering and technology – marine, said: 'Our partnership with TCOMS will greatly benefit future marine technology by allowing us to leverage the great research capabilities in Singapore which we can apply to smart ship solutions.
'By developing demonstrator technology around sensors, data analytics and the Marine Internet of Things we will see ships become more reliable, more efficient and more closely integrated into global supply chains generating cost savings and improving revenue generation.'
Among TCOMS' current work is the development of a next-generation Deepwater Ocean Basin equipped with wave and current generation systems designed to simulate harsh ocean environments, including those in ultra-deep waters. Scheduled for completion in 2019, the ocean basin facility will facilitate the development of innovative concepts including intelligent floating platforms and ships, autonomous systems, marine robotics and subsea systems.
