Mitsui O.S.K. Lines agrees to share the data of about 180 MOL ships
Mitsui OSK Lines and Ship Data Center Co have agreed to share data from around 180 MOL ships in service that are part of MOL's "FOCUS Project" through the IoS Open Platform, a ship IoT data sharing platform promoted by ShipDC.
MOL had previously shared operation data from a few ships with IoS-OP, and has now agreed to extend the sharing to about 180 ships in service. This data exchange will dramatically increase the amount of ship activity data transferred in IoS-OP, enabling stakeholders to use the data to improve their corporate value in the pursuit of ship safety and economic efficiency, environmental measures, and the development of maritime industry technologies to boost international competitiveness.
With IoS-OP at its core, MOL and ShipDC strive for ship protection, environmental contribution, and economic rationality through data utilization, as well as further acceleration of data collection, delivery, and utilization in the maritime industry.
MOL has been developing various applications that support to enhance vessel protection and protect the marine environment by analyzing data collected by more than10,000 sensing objects from boats, engines, cargoes, sea weather, and other sources at a high frequency (one-minute intervals).
As of the end of 2020, 57 organizations had joined the member association "IoS-OP Consortium." Under the supervision of the consortium, ClassNK's wholly owned subsidiary ShipDC runs IoS-OP.
