The Sea Traffic Management (STM) project has received support from IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim. During the STM Validation Project Final Conference at the IMO earlier this month, Lim said that STM goes hand in hand with IMO goals. STM connects and updates ships and ports in real time and facilitates efficient information exchange. The system has been developed in three consecutive E.U.-projects running 2010-2018. Last year, the STM Validation project successfully installed the first STM compatible bridge systems, connecting ships with shore based services.
