Bahri to Implement Alpha Ori's SMARTShip™ Platform
To install AI-enabled IoT platform across 40 ships of its fleet
Bahri Ship Management (BSM) one of the renowned maritime service providers in the Middle East and Alpha Ori Technologies (AOT) a leading provider of maritime digital solutions have signed a contract to deploy SMARTShip™ platform on 40 ships in Bahri's fleet.
SMARTShip, Alpha Ori's IoT platform, is known for its cutting-edge computing and AI enabled applications providing intelligent alerts, advanced analytics and insights in real time.
The platform provides a 'live connect' experience by connecting to all the ship's machineries - Navigation, Cargo and Engine control systems.
With 3k to 5K data points flowing at 30 sec intervals directly from the machineries to the AOT's Cloud, SMARTShip uses machine learning algorithms to bring the power of AI in vessel management, fuel savings and predictive maintenance.
SMARTShip's web and mobile interfaces enable the ship operators to meet their safety and sustainability goals using various easy to use applications such as customizable reporting, geo location-based alarm system, charter party dashboards, remote monitoring and diagnostics.
AOT’s contract with Bahri was finalised after the successful completion of a three-month trial of SMARTShip on one of Bahri's Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC).
Captain Rajesh Unni, co-CEO of AOT and CEO and founder of Singapore-based ship manager Synergy Group, commented: “SMARTShip uses machine learning algorithms to bring the power of AI to vessel management.
"This enables fuel savings, improved hull efficiency and predictive maintenance, providing owners and managers with a rapid return on investment."
