  22. 22. INDUSTRY/EXPERT VIEW There has been a disturbing degree of enthusiasm in some circles for autonomous ships, which would create massive unemployment of the world’s seafarers and disrupt the economy of the maritime labor supply countries, all to achieve a rather minor reduction in the cost of shipping.” Source: The Marine Executive, ‘Would Autonomous Ships Be Good for Society?’, 31 October 2016.

  24. 24. INDUSTRY/EXPERT VIEW Source: Lloyd’s Register, Global Marine Technology Trends 2030. Global Marine Technology Trends 2030 Autonomous Systems The impact of autonomy on the maritime industry will not simply be technological. It will fundamentally change ways of working, the workplace, and the workforce”. Although creation of new sectors/markets will occur, smart ships and maritime autonomy may render existing maritime professions obsolete. says:
  25. 25. INDUSTRY/EXPERT VIEW Source: Foresight, Future of the Sea: Industry perspectives on emerging technologies. Maritime industries have been historically conservative in their approach to technology adoption, due partly to: long asset lifetimes high investment costs low margins This may constrain penetration rates of new technology in future.
  26. 26. — MICHAEL GREY In the case of autonomous ships... people need to learn how to walk before they try to run… [t]he sheer number of things that regularly go wrong with any ship at sea and which are put right by the friendly agency of a human being aboard that ship, mean that major inroads into these problems must be addressed before anyone could seriously think about taking the seafarers off. It is one thing to have all manner of clever sensors telling you that there is a bearing running hot, or that you have a hydraulic leak, or that some vital bit of electrical equipment is about to short-circuit, but what practical remedy can you offer, if there is nobody with a spanner within 2,000 miles?” Michael Grey MBE is a Fellow of the Nautical Institute. He has a long career in maritime journalism having serbed as the Technical Editor of Shipbuilding & Shipping Weekly 1970-74, Deputy Editor and Editor in Chief of Fairplay International Shipping Weekly 1974-78, Lloyd’s List Maritime Editor and Editor in Chief 1978-2009.

  29. 29. The UK is home to innovative smart shipping companies like ASV Global, who see 2018 as the ‘Year of the ASV (Autonomous Surface Vessel)’. INDUSTRY/EXPERT VIEW Source: ASV, ‘2018: Increasing Adoption of ASVs at Sea’, 30 January 2018. Image: ASV Global. With major companies taking an interest in autonomous technology and beginning their own programmes, and organisations in both the commercial and military sphere desperate to maximise efficiencies, it seems only natural that over the coming year there will be an increase in the adoption of ASVs for a range of operations and applications. After all, ASVs reduce risks and cost while providing an innovative solution to challenges at sea.”
  30. 30. YARA Birkeland will set the benchmark for the application of innovative maritime technology for more efficient and environmentally friendly shipping." INDUSTRY/EXPERT VIEW Source: Kongsberg, ‘YARA and KONGSBERG enter into partnership to build world's first autonomous and zero emissions ship’, 9 May 2017. Yara have commissioned the development of world's first unmanned cargo ship: Yara Birkeland. The ship is expected to set sail for the first time in 2018, supervised by a human crew, and become fully unmanned in 2020. Though the initial outlay is expensive, Yara hope to recoup costs by integrating their supply chain. – GAIR HÅØY, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF KONGSBERG
