Ships Employ Hi-tech


Far from lagging behind in the information technology revolution, 75% of ships already have modern computer equipment on board, a survey conducted for satellite communication provider Inmarsat by MRC has found.
Inmarsat has conducted what it claims is the largest maritime IT survey ever, and findings suggest that shipping companies are embracing the use of information technology with a will. Some 338 companies in 46 countries with control over 5,000 ships took part in Inmarsat's Communications at Sea Report, which confirmed the increasing use of ship management software. About 50% of companies use ship management applications (SMAs) at present, while more are considering doing so.
Out of the 75% of ships which have modern personal computers on board, over half use Pentium processors. Although a smaller percentage of ships have network-connected terminals, most of the companies surveyed said they expected to give their fleets access to Intranet services within the next few years, the MRC report found.
Scandinavian companies lead the pack in using ship management applications, the report said, while Japanese companies are the least advanced. The least developed sector as far as ship management applications were concerned was the dry bulk sector, it found.
Without a doubt, the Internet and the World Wide Web will have an impact on the sea-borne maritime world.
