Press Release

ClassNK confirmed type approval certification for SMARTShip, a patented digital shipping solution developed by Alpha Ori Technologies (AOT).

SMARTShip, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform that enables the onboard operation of multiple systems with varying degrees of autonomy, has already been installed on more than 30 vessels, with another 60 ships are at various stages of the set-up process.

ClassNK's certification for SMARTShip approves the solution as a 'Computer Based System' which conforms to the Class Society's rules governing a product performing 'Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics', 'Situational Awareness' and 'Decision Support Systems', both onboard and ashore.

Hourai Maru, a mid-sized gas carrier delivered on March 11th, 2019, was the first ship certified with a ClassNK-approved SMARTShip.

Captain Rajesh Unni, Co-CEO of AOT and CEO and Founder of leading Singapore-based shipmanager Synergy Group, welcomed the certification of SMARTShip by ClassNK. AOT's SMARTShip platform takes a holistic approach to solving maritime pain-point issues for every stakeholder in the logistics value chain - Ship Owners, Ship Managers, Ship Operators, Port Management, Surveyors, Ship Registries, P&I Clubs and Shipbuilders. Data is collected from all parts of the ship to create a platform which connects disparate systems. This enables the continual monitoring and collection of data, helping crew and managers make rules-based decisions.
