NYK and JMU to conduct joint research on 14,000TEU containerships

NYK, the Monohakobi Technology Institute (MTI), has partnered with Japan Marine United (JMU) to carry out joint research on a series of 14,000TEU containerships, including NYK Blue Jay.

NYK, the Monohakobi Technology Institute (MTI), has partnered with Japan Marine United (JMU) to carry out joint research on a series of 14,000TEU containerships, including NYK Blue Jay.

NYK Blue Jay, which recently entered the NYK fleet at the JMU shipyard, will be the first containership of the series.

For NYK Blue Jay, NYK obtained assistance from the ship’s owner to provide technological advice to JMU since the shipbuilding stage.

"It expects to collect and evaluate data collected from NYK Blue Jay, and present the analytical results back to JMU."

NYK’s onshore staff has been using the MTI-developed device, called SIMS2, to achieve more accurate operational data from oceangoing vessels.

Big data received in future joint research by using SIMS2 on containerships in this series will be collected at a ship data centre set up by ClassNK last December.

With the help of this data, the operation of vessels will be safer.

Through the joint research, NYK and JMU expect to contribute to energy savings by analysing propulsion performance.

Additionally, the research aims to use the hull-stress monitoring device, which has been installed on all containerships of the series, to collect data and use it bolster safety.

The NYK and JMU partnership also intend to prevent serious engine plant accidents.
