MarineFields And Inmarsat Sign MOU On Collaborative Decision Making Project To Digitalise Port Call Information

7 June 2017: MarineFields and Inmarsat (LSE: ISAT.L) have signed an MOU to partner in investigating how sea traffic management and satellite connectivity can make port calls more efficient for all stakeholders through improved information sharing, situational awareness, optimized processes, and collaborative decision making.

The joint effort will be focused on providing a marketplace for port call optimization services resulting in just-in-time operations and shortened turn-around times.

Perseus PortCDM will connect the various stakeholders involved in, or related to, sea transport, including vessels, shipping companies, ports, terminals, and hinterland operators.

The aim of the project will be to focus on enhanced standardized data sharing and enable third party providers to bring new and innovative services to key stakeholders in the maritime industry.

“We hope that this will develop into a long-term, fruitful cooperation. The main objective of this partnership is to make informed collaborative decisions by shared information while at the same time providing all stakeholders in the port call process the opportunity to develop innovative services and applications” said Socrates Theodossiou (pictured left) Managing Director, MarineFields Holding Ltd.

MarineField’s Perseus PortCDM will utilize the Inmarsat satellite network infrastructure, specifically Fleet Xpress, which now has over 10,000 committed vessels and FleetBroadband which currently has around 40,000 active terminals on vessels across the world.

“Fleet Xpress has been purposely designed to empower third-party application providers to enhance existing services to all companies in the maritime industry and MarineFields’ Perseus PortCDM will help improve the inefficiencies in the entire port call process through the power of Inmarsat’s satellite connectivity,” said Ronald Spithout (pictured right), President of Inmarsat Maritime.

About MarineFields Holding Ltd:
Inspired by what digitization can bring to the maritime industry, MarineFields offers enhanced digital collaboration services between shipping companies, ports, and terminals. Inspired from other transport sectors, opportunities with latest satellite-based connectivity technologies and the concept of Sea Traffic Management, the definition and validation of PortCDM as a Sea Traffic Management Concept, MarineFields took the first step towards real-time standardized sharing of time stamps (port-2-port, ship-2-port, and port-actor-2-port actor, and port-2-hinterland) through an open, interoperable operational non-proprietary platform creating substantive benefits for involved stakeholders in sea transports and port call operations.
