Kick- off meeting DT4GS

This summer a new EU project is starting. The kick-off meeting will take place at Danaos premises on 23&24 of June. DT4GS is an open collaboration and open Digital Twin infrastructure for Green Smart Shipping

DT4GS is aimed at delivering an “Open Digital Twin Framework” for both shipping companies and the broader waterborne industry actors to tap into new opportunities made available through the use of Digital Twins(DTs). The project will enable shipping stakeholders to embrace the full spectrum of DT innovations to support smart green shipping in the upgrade of existing ships and new vessels. DT4GS will cover the full ship lifecycle by embracing a federation of DT applications as well as utilizing DTLF policies and related shared-dataspace developments for the sector. DT4GS applications will focus on shipping companies but will also provide a decarbonization decision-support system for shipyards, equipment manufacturers, port authorities and operators, river commissions, classification societies, energy companies, and transport/corridor infrastructure companies.
