American Bureau of Shipping Global ABS CyberSafety director Paul Walters said: “SHI Smart Ship Solution was successfully tested and evaluated for compliance with the ABS Cybersecurity Guide.”

SHI has developed the Smart Ship Solution with an aim to improve vessel efficiencies by combining real-time data from hull and equipment sensors with land-based technical and fleet managers.

Sharing of data between ship and shore in real-time facilitates automated operations, however, it also increases cybersecurity challenges for the marine and offshore industries.

SHI Ship and Offshore Performance Research Centre vice-president Dr Dong-Yeon Lee said: “Gaining the ABS Certificate of CyberSafety Compliance is an important first step to apply the Smart Ship Solution in the marine and offshore industries.

“Gaining the ABS Certificate of CyberSafety Compliance is an important first step to apply the Smart Ship Solution in the marine and offshore industries.”

“Through the ABS / SHI Joint Development Project, SHI is proud to acquire the world’s first ship system ABS Certificate of CyberSafety Compliance.”

ABS intends to continue working with SHI on the development of next-generation cybersecurity technology for smart ships.

The upcoming technology will focus on the ship’s on-board architecture and also on its onshore fleet management cybersecurity architecture.

In December, ABS granted an Approval in Principle (AIP) to Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding’s new liquefied natural gas (LNG) power supply vessel.
