SevenCs Supports MariGreen Project

SevenCs is part of the EU INTERREG V A cross-border project “MariGreen” to support the maritime industry in the transition towards more efficient, greener and more sustainable shipping.

 
The MariGreen project develops innovations for greener and low-emission shipping and supports in particular small and medium enterprises. There are 12 innovation projects behind "MariGreen" that are dealt with by a total of 59 partners located in the Netherlands and Germany. Alternative fuel for ships, Wind Energy Systems for freight and passenger shipping, improvement of logistics operations, resource-efficient ship operations and safety issues in nautical education and training are among the main topics.
 
SevenCs engages in the MariGreen work stream “Wind propulsion in commercial shipping”. As a partner in the subproject “Windship Modelling and voyage optimization” we will investigate together with our project partners vessel modelling software providing automated voyage optimization criteria for wind propulsion supported vessels.
 
The number of external parameters influencing a voyage significantly increases for this type of vessel. Therefore the development of the vessel modelling software and the connection of this software to the main navigational tool on board, the ECDIS, are the core requirements within this project. The result will be an optimized voyage plan for a particular wind propulsion supported vessel to prove ship efficiency for such vessels under commercial conditions.
 
SevenCs GmbH is located in Hamburg, and for decades has been “the Expert” in developing maritime software applications. Global linkage and business experience for nearly 25 years have led to a reliable product family such as the S-57 chart display Kernel, professional navigation software (ORCA-Series) and ENC production tools.

The project MariGreen is funded under the INTERREG V A program Deutschland-Nederland with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and by national co-financing from Germany and the Netherlands.
