Newly Signed MoU to Establish a New Simulation Platform for Creating Future Ships

Newly Signed MoU to Establish a New Simulation Platform for Creating Future Ships

Rolls-Royce, The Norwegian University of Technology Science (NTNU), research organisation SINTEF Ocean, and classification society DNV GL, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the aim of creating an open source digital platform for use in the development of new ships.

The platform would allow the creation of “digital twins.” A digital twin is a copy of a real ship, including its systems, that synthesizes the information available about the ship digitally. This allows any aspect to be explored through digitally, creating a virtual test bench to assess the safety and performance of a vessel and its systems, both before its construction and through its life cycle.

Asbjørn Skaro, Director Digital & Systems, Rolls-Royce – Marine said: “The platform will enable us to build digital twins of real ships, which in turn will form the basis for novel ways of designing, constructing, verifying and operating new maritime concepts and technology.”

Remi Eriksen, Group President and CEO, DNV GL said: “We are entering a new era with the accelerated uptake of more IT-technology in shipping. Digitalization of information flows will have a positive impact on safety and environmental performance. By creating ships and ship technology in a virtual environment new ideas and technology can be realized and tested in a shorter time frame. A platform like this could form the basis for future class services.”

Hans Petter Hildre, Professor and Chairman, NTNU said: “A simulation-based way of working lets us easily test multiple concepts before a final solution is selected. In addition, re-using digital models along the entire value chain will contribute to reducing costs.”

Henning Borgen, President, SINTEF Ocean said: “This is a very concrete example of how digitalization can contribute in making our most important ocean space industries more efficient. I believe we have the knowledge and data needed to contribute to this industrial revolution and look forward to be part of this.”

The project partners have said they intend to open the platform for use by other parties, with some core aspects built on an open source framework – enabling designers, equipment and system manufacturers, yards, ship owners, operators, research institutes and academia to work together to co-create and innovate together.
