Martitime Transition: Digitization for shipbuilding & shipyards


There are enormous development opportunities for the shipbuilding industry in the technical implementation of production with intelligent machines and new digital business models.


Mammoth projects

The shipbuilding industry offers solutions for many areas of inland and sea shipping. However, massive distortions of competition, the effects of the pandemic on passenger shipping and outdated fleets with typically poorer environmental records have put a severe strain on the financial resources that will be available for investments in new environmental technologies in the future. The reduction of ship emissions and the goal of climate neutrality are mammoth projects.

System competence for the transformation

A strong shipbuilding industry is of central importance for well-functioning global supply chains for prosperity and growth as well as for overcoming the climate crisis. The need for innovative, climate-friendly ships for a clean and more efficient exchange of goods by sea is high.

Investments in environmentally and climate-friendly technology as well as dedicated fleet renewal with high-tech ships are becoming growth drivers. The high degree of diversity and complexity in high-tech niche markets requires maximum flexibility with high-cost sensitivity.

There are enormous development opportunities for the shipbuilding industry in the technical implementation of production with intelligent machines and new digital business models. Therefore, optimize your production processes and make existing production facilities more resource efficient. Find out how intelligent machines maintain their innovative power.

"We therefore need a consistent fleet program ... so that the >>system capability shipbuilding<< is secured in the long term.
Dr. Reinhard Lüken, General Manager, Verband für Schiffbau und Meerestechnik e.V.
