Ferries of the Future…Here Now with Kongsberg Maritime

(CEST) 60 min - Webinar
Kongsberg Maritime supplies the “Full Picture” from Bridge to Propeller and this webinar brings together our expertise across Bridge Systems, Power Solutions & Propulsions Systems for Ferries & RO-PAX vessels. We will begin discussing modern navigation systems, introduction of new sensor technologies and automatic maneuvering.

This section of the webinar will touch on how new innovations derived from marine autonomy programs might increase safety and efficiency of manned vessels, with focus on bridge systems, and relevance to passenger vessels.

We will then take a walk through our innovative and market leading Power Solutions to demonstrate how we can help vessels achieve Hybrid or Pure Battery Status.

Finally we will explore some of our Propulsion Systems and discuss the importance of being early in the design phase to look at the hull and propulsion together for optimizing performance and how Kongsberg Hydro dynamic research center can be utilized to optimize the propulsion on a RO-PAX ferry.
