Steor makes Advanced Ship Navigation Solutions

Cover-1-Maritime-2022-Startups-StartUs-Insights-noresizeFounding Year: 2020
Location: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Partner for: Autonomous Ship Navigation, Remote Vessel Monitoring

Steor is a Russian startup that develops advanced navigation solutions for ships. The startup’s maritime connectivity platform enables remote vessel monitoring, providing real-time location and environmental data along with route optimization. Steor also makes an autonomous navigation system that retrofits into conventional ships. The startup leverages computer vision, wireless communication, and information processing subsystems to achieve autonomous sailing. These solutions allow vessel owners and ports to enhance navigation efficiency, improve worker safety, and increase visibility into vessel status.

SailPlan facilitates Ship Emission Reporting

Cover-2-Maritime-2022-Startups-StartUs-Insights-noresizeFounding Year: 2020
Location: Reston, US
Partner for: Emission Tracking, Predictive Analytics

US-based startup SailPlan provides Emissions Optimization Platform, a tool to track ship emissions in real-time. The platform generates the digital twin of a ship or the fleet to gather real-time engine, fuel, and emission data. This enables fleet managers to constantly track carbon dioxide, sulfur oxide, and nitrous oxide emissions from the ship. The platform also identifies poor-performing factors using this data such as engine loading and maintenance issues and, in turn, reduce emissions. In addition, it offers predictive analytics on fleet emissions which allows vessel owners to mitigate impacts of weather, emissions, and ship traffic. The startup thus facilitates emission reporting and enables the maritime companies to align with their ESG goals.

Harbor Lab enables Port Digitization

Cover-3-Maritime-2022-Startups-StartUs-Insights-noresizeFounding Year: 2020
Location: Athens, Greece
Partner for: Cost Estimator, Disbursement Accounting

Greek startup Harbor Lab facilitates port digitization. The startup’s cloud-based platform combines advanced analytics and an online marketplace to optimize the disbursements process. It also offers port cost analysis, vessel tracking, and weather monitoring to improve vessel management. Moreover, the marketplace connects shipowners, ship managers, and vendors, providing access to a vast network of buyers. Manual recordkeeping and port calls are time-consuming and expensive whereas the startup’s platform automates the port backend processes. This provides increased visibility into port operations and facilitates port automation.

Freeboard Sound Solutions makes an Advanced Scrubber System

Founding Year: 2020
Location: Seattle, US
Partner for: Emission Reduction

Freeboard Sound Solutions is a US-based startup that provides Switched NOx Adsorber & Reformer Regenerated Exhaust (SNARRE), an advanced scrubber system. SNARRE adds a second adsorber and a valve to switch the exhaust gas flow back and forth between the reformer and the adsorber. Since diesel engines are an integral part of the maritime sector, transitioning to cleaner fuels may take longer due to the expenses involved. On the other hand, the startup facilitates this transition by retrofitting existing engines and, in turn, cutting down greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Fregata Space provides a Water Safety Monitoring Platform

Founding Year: 2020
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Partner for: Pollutant Detection

Spanish startup Fregata Space offers a water safety monitoring platform. The startup combines big data and machine learning to monitor water quality at ports and maritime areas. The platform also provides historical data, real-time visual indicators, and pollution monitoring to improve decontamination operations and reduce fines. This allows marine companies to minimize their environmental impacts and de-risk the environment for workers.
