The concept Sea Traffic Management is developed and used in many different Projects.
Validates the STM concept, the infrastructure and the services by showing the benefits in practice on 300 ships, in 13 ports, 5 shore centres and 12 connected simulator centres.
In STM EfficientFlow, the Baltic ports of Rauma and Gävle implement efficient port calls using real-time information. Improved traffic flow converts unsafe waiting times into bunker savings for large ships in the narrow Swedish and Finnish archipelagos. Making STM happen!
Real Time Ferries – RTF
The Real Time Ferries Project connects ferry-lines in the Baltic Sea Region to hinterland transport making ship voyages a connected part of the transport chain. The project provied travellers, forwarders and goods handlers with real time information at shore and on board. The project is finanaced by the European Regional Development Fund and includes 22 partners and 23 associated partners in 8 countries around the Baltic Sea.
STM BALT SAFE
STM BALT SAFE project lasting 2019-2021 will contribute to increased safety of navigation in the Baltic Sea by providing Sea Traffic Management (STM) services to the tanker traffic in the Baltic. Tanker ships will be made safer by making them STM compatible hence given the ability to send and receive voyage plans with other ships and with public authorities in Baltic Sea countries.The project will address the recently amended HELCOM recommendations 34 E/2 “Further testing and development of the concept of exchange of voyage plans as well as other e-navigation solutions to enhance safety of navigation and protection of the marine environment in the Baltic Sea region”.
This Project defined the STM concept. It assessed the strengths and weaknesses of the current maritime ship- and transport systems, operations and interactions, and defined a target concept and key performance indicators for four STM strategic enablers: It also developed the route Exchange standard and the European Maritime Simulator Network.
The idea of route exchange was tested ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore. Ideas of shore based services were conceived and the Maritime Cloud was tested.
MONALISA in ice: Route exchange ship to shore from a ship deep in the Arctic was succesfully tested. That connected ship could serve as a base station for sharing information about other ships in its vicinity.
