In a pivotal step towards revolutionising the European container supply chain, the MOSES project is hosting an exploitation workshop to occur virtually on November 2nd, 2023, from 10.00 – 12.00 CET via Zoom platform.
MOSES, a three-year H2020 project, has a mission to bolster Short Sea Shipping (SSS) within the European container supply chain. It tackles vulnerabilities and operational challenges associated with large containerships, with a two-fold strategy. First, it aims to reduce the total time to berth for TEN-T Hub Ports, and second, it seeks to promote the use of SSS feeder services in smaller ports that may have limited or no infrastructure.
The project introduced and examined several innovations under real-life conditions, shaping the future of Short Sea Shipping. Among these innovations is the groundbreaking autonomous sailing of an innovative container feeder vessel. This vessel successfully completed a roundtrip between two ports, demonstrating the feasibility and potential of autonomous maritime transport. The trial took place within MARIN’s Seakeeping and Maneuvering Basin, showcasing the vessel’s capabilities under various conditions.
The upcoming “Exploitation workshop on the autonomous sailing of MOSES Innovative Container Feeder Vessel” will showcase the results of this pioneering pilot demonstration. It also serves as a platform for gathering valuable input and perspectives from stakeholders in shaping the roadmap for MOSES‘s post-project exploitation. This will ensure the innovative solutions developed within the MOSES project continue to drive positive changes in the maritime industry.
