Maritime software provider Sea and the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping (the Centre) have solidified their collaboration by formally signing a Knowledge Partnership Agreement. Through this agreement, Sea and the Centre have become official partners, committing to a sustained and strategic collaboration aimed at expediting the decarbonisation of the maritime sector.
Sea, a prominent provider of commercial software solutions for global maritime trade, offers data-driven solutions that drive informed choices, facilitating sustainable shipping practises for charterers, brokers, and ship owners. In its capacity as the Centre’s knowledge partner, Sea will provide access to its pre-trade intelligence and analytics tool, which processes over 68.7 billion AIS data points annually, yielding proprietary insights. These insights encompass visibility into port activities, vessel deployment, emissions assessments, green corridor analysis, waiting times, and fleet speed trends. This tool is instrumental in estimating the potential for emission reductions.
In welcoming Sea to the Centre, Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping, said: “Reliable data empowers us to make informed decisions. With Sea, the Centre will get important insights into global fleet operations which can help us fast-track the development and implementation of green corridors, technology projects, and progressive regulatory frameworks.”
In joining the Centre, Peter Schroder, CEO at Sea, said: “The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping is the leading provider of the innovation and collaboration the shipping industry needs to achieve our decarbonisation targets. Our platform will accelerate the Center’s work in enabling future solutions, concepts, and standards – including modelling viable decarbonisation pathways. Sea’s purpose is to power better decisions to enable sustainable shipping, so we’re proud to be joining this powerful alliance of global organisations. We look forward to working as a collective to develop the full zero carbon maritime value chain from well to wake.”
