Autonomous operations

The trend towards greater autonomy and the integration of decision support systems into vessel operations represents a significant change in maritime practice. This transformation not only addresses the ongoing crew shortage, but also improves efficiency and safety on board. We foresee a future where dredgers will operate largely autonomously, requiring minimal human intervention.

Next phase in autonomous dredging: assisted autonomy

Connected world


Our digital solutions provide remote access to your vessel or asset, giving you 24/7 insight into its performance and condition. With remote access to critical data, asset owners, operators and superintendents can quickly resolve issues, optimise utilisation and maintenance schedules, and monitor performance, regardless of location.
