DT4GS – Digital Twins for Green Shipping

The DT4GS project aims to provide an “Open Digital Twin Framework” for shipping companies and different players in the maritime sector to take advantage of the benefits offered by the use of Digital Twins, to support green and smart shipping both in the modernization of the current fleet as well as in the construction of new vessels.

The main objective is to cover the entire life cycle of the ship, from planning, design, construction, operation, modernization to scrapping. DT4GS applications will focus on shipping companies, but will also provide a decarbonization decision support system across the industry including shipyards, equipment manufacturers, port authorities and operators, river commissions, classification societies, charterers or infrastructure companies.

The project will develop twin digital representations of real ships, which will then be tested and validated in four Living Labs (LLs) with different types of vessels (tankers, containers, bulk carriers and ROPAX) with the aim of optimizing navigation, machinery and hull, up to energy management.

The 36-month Research and Innovation project involves 21 partners, including specialists and associations from the shipping industry, shipowners, suppliers of digital twins for shipping, universities and research centers.

Fundación Valenciaport will coordinate the Living Labs work package, fundamental to feed back the digital model, as well as drive the project’s cluster and define the collaborative models with ports and other stakeholders in the sector.
