Damen and TCS received Innovation Award for Triton
ICT media won the CIO Magazine Innovation Award 2020 from Damen Shipyards Group and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).
Triton is directly linked to the strategy of Damen to become the most sustainable, digitally connected shipbuilder and to provide its customers with a service that stretches from sales to decommissioning through the lifecycle of its goods.
The award was given for the Connected Vessel Platform, Triton, an integrated, collaborative IoT platform that collects data from Damen vessels.
Damen vessels with the platform are fitted with 10,000-15,000 sensors that collect different data. For instance, how much fuel, fresh water and oil are stored in on board tanks or engine performance indicators such as strength, RPM or fuel consumption.
This makes Damen vessels smarter, which in turn gives Damen's customers various advantages.
“Damen is investing considerably in digitalisation. The further connectivity of our vessels is a crucial aspect in our ability to deliver lifecycle solutions to our clients. More than that, digitalisation stimulates the evolution of our products – and those produced within our ecosystem – enhancing efficiency in performance and driving maritime sustainability," Damen CEO Arnout Damen said.
“We are delighted to receive this innovation award for the Connected Vessel Platform, Triton. I would like to congratulate our team and our partner TCS for their outstanding work. This platform exemplifies our objective to make our vessels smarter and better connected to our ecosystem in order to contribute to a more sustainable future. We are excited to continue exploring new horizons," stated Damen’s chief information officer Aart Rupert.
