Triple Collaboration for Autonomous Ferry Operations

Norled, Remota and Seam sign LOI for remote and autonomous ferry operations

Norwegian ferry and express boat operator Norled, Remota AS, and Seam AS have signed a letter of intent to collaborate on the further development and operation of a control center for marine operations and autonomous operations of ships.

Remota AS is a joint venture between DeepOcean, Solstad Offshore and Østensjø Group. Its purpose is to fast-track the adoption of remotely managed services in order to drive down operating costs and emissions for the marine and offshore industries.

Seam AS is a leading supplier of zero-emission solutions to the maritime industry.

The three companies intend to build on Remota’s already-established control center for marine and semi-autonomous vessel operations and further develop this to include control of autonomous operations.

Through a joint control center environment, the parties want to share experiences, collaborate on technological solutions, and promote standardization. They also intend to utilize cross-functional synergies that benefit Norled and its customers, Remota and Seam.
