ABB Ability™ for Marine & Ports


The shipping industry is facing a range of challenges which will impact established business and operational models. Environmental regulation and global oversupply in ships are increasing the need for efficient vessel management.

Connected Fleets

Connected Fleets

Integrate operations from ship to shore

Shipping companies are increasingly adopting connected, digital solutions as they move towards intelligent, automated shipping. As large volumes of data are obtained from a wide range of onboard control systems, it is crucial that the end solution delivers consistent data that enables easy interpretation and usability.

For shipping companies, digital solutions are increasingly being used as a cost-effective way of improving efficiency while complying with environmental regulations. Tools, like on-board energy consumption visibility software and crew decision support systems, are used to ensure that vessel crews make safe, efficient decisions while operating their vessels.

Onshore access to vessel data provides ship owners with the information they need to benchmark fleet performance and identify opportunities for improvement. For charterers, insurance companies and cargo-owners, it provides the visibility and transparency they need to make informed and appropriate decisions.
