STENA LINE: VIDEO - Ferry Operator uses Artificial Intelligence on Ferry Stena Scandinavica with good results

The video, issued by Stena Line, shows how the Captain and crew onboard the cruise ferry 'Stena Scandinavica' are using Artificial Intelligence to reduce the fuel consumption on the Gothenburg – Kiel route, under a pilot study initiated back in September 2018.

The pilot study shows good results and Stena Line is now looking into which of the company’s 38 ships that will be next.

The company announced the pilot study in September 2018, in which artificial intelligence will be implemented on the vessel to contribute at the annual goal of reducing fuel consumption onboard by 2.5%.

The goal of the project is to create such a model that can provide an ultimate decision base for the captain and officers onboard when planning a trip.

In addition, the model can also contribute to knowledge transfer to the next generation.
