Alewijnse presents the technology of the future at Maritime Industry 2022

System integrator Alewijnse will present the technology of the future in a changing maritime world at the Maritime Industry fair, May 17-19, 2022 at Evenementenhal Gorinchem. Under the theme #WeConnectToTheFuture, the company will present the latest trends in electrical engineering and automation in the vital themes for our maritime ecosystem: intelligent navigation, digitalization and energy transition.

The maritime sector is an international industry on the move. New technologies, developments and areas of work follow one another in rapid succession. As a systems integrator, Alewijnse enjoys working with customers and partners to combine our knowledge and together take steps into the future, so that shipbuilders, owners and crew can benefit from the best systems and techniques. .

Simulations on digital twins
One of the latest applications developed by Alewijnse with customers and partners is simulation and digital twins, which are revolutionizing the manufacturing industry. The technology is there, and its development in the maritime domain is underway. Alewijnse and Tree C are leading the way by jointly offering new 3D digital twin applications capable of physically correct simulation of the specific mission equipment of ships in their working environment. This brings a wide range of benefits, such as the ability to design and test systems more efficiently, optimize training in a correct physical 3D environment and offer the best remote service. The result is a dramatic improvement in system performance and substantial time and cost savings for customers.

Laser light through optical fibers
Together with Fibr8, Alewijnse brings the latest lighting technology to the marine industry. By sending laser light through super thin and flexible optical fibres, Alewijnse and Fibr8 can create a powerful play of light along exterior lines and superstructures. Extremely refined and subtle, the fibers create the most spectacular light effects. It’s the latest technology with endless possibilities for the future.

Energy Conversion
With energy conversion specialist Ingeteam, Alewijnse is taking a big step towards a sustainable future. The two companies share the same vision of a sustainable world and will work closely together to offer energy-efficient hybrid and electric propulsion systems, energy storage systems, electric motors and variable frequency drives. In these, digitization and future technical developments will play an important role. Together, the companies will offer state-of-the-art technology for all kinds of projects in the marine industry.

Autonomous Expedition
The technology and services company SEAFAR is a pioneer in semi-autonomous maritime transport. Their captains direct the ships remotely from a control room. They run up to three ships at a time, 80% become self-sufficient, with only a few crew members remaining on board. These are unique techniques for inland navigation which, by combining different elements, form an effective whole. To advance its plans, SEAFAR is partnering with Alewijnse to take steps towards the development of innovative systems that will connect to onboard electrical equipment to enable remote maintenance and other interventions directly from control centers. In this way, the two companies will make the maritime industry #SEAFAPready! for the future.

Want to know more about autonomous shipping? On Thursday, May 19 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., you can join the SMASH! knowledge session ‘Will the best helmsman really be ashore?’ where Alewijnse, Seafar, Kotug and Shipping Technology will discuss the future of autonomous navigation, to see what benefits this technology could have for maritime operators in the short and medium term.

Next level
We hope to see you at SMASH!’s booth F208, where you’ll find all about the future of the maritime industry. Plus, enjoy an exceptional Next Level hospitality experience with a food court where the tastiest snacks are available.
