Damen partners with TCS for increased vessel connectivity
Damen has partnered with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) in the development of an integrated IoT platform. With this, Damen vessels become increasingly connected and Damen is able to gather and analyse data from the 10-15,000 sensors on board its vessels, the company said in its release. The results of this are significant, offering predictive maintenance, remote services access and savings in fuel consumption.
Furthermore, this is a platform with which Damen can collaborate - sharing its knowledge with the wider maritime eco-system. It also assists Damen in its graduation from shipbuilder to maritime services provider - assisting its clients throughout the entire lifecycle of their vessel, from lead to decommissioning.
