Advantages of Automatic Ships over Ships with Crews
• Ships are expected to be safer, more
efficient, and cheaper to run.
• Reduce human error which is the
cause of 75%-96% marine accidents.
• Free from Piracy
No Crew Cost
Ship requires no crew on board. Hence,
Operating cost is lower than the ships
• Larger Cargo capacity and Wind
• Lighter and sleeker
• Less Fuel consumptions
• Facilitates more space for cargo.
Addressing the shortage
The growing shortage of maritime
skilled workforce can be addressed by
autonomous marine vehicles.
