DT4GS at the Open Simulation Platform Conference (OSP) 2022

The “Open Simulation Platform Conference 2022”was held at the NMK Norwegian Maritime Competence Center in Ålesund, Norway on 15th of November 2022. It consisted of three sessions. The first session focused on OSP status and experience sharing. The second session was a technical session, focusing on usability and new developments. The third session was a hands-on workshop, using the OSP. 

The DT4GS was represented in the first session of the conference with two presentations, by INLECOM as Project Coordinator and KONNECTA, as leader of the infrastructure development (WP2 Leader). INLECOM, represented by Mr. Anargyros S. Mavrakos, presented “overview of the Digital Twin for the Green Shipping (DT4GS)” project which displayed the project’s ambition to investigate the impact of digital Twin technologies, to the endeavour of green zero emission shipping by 2050, as dictated by the EU’s strategy on the energy. These technologies are expected to optimize operations and facilitate more efficient coordination of the decarbonization actions among the whole waterborne industry stakeholders.  Dr. Antonis Antonopoulos presented for KONNECTA aspects of the work conducted within DT4GS project, entitled: “Simulation Models Orchestration using Knowledge Graphs for the Generation of a Shipping Digital Twin”.

In the second session technical matters were discussed and at the workshop (third session) participants, including INLECOM’s and KONNECTA’s representatives, conducted a 5-stage tutorial-exercise, building up a simple model of a vessel and running simulations to navigate it along a given trajectory using vessel’s DP system.

DT4GS has received funding from the Horizon Europe framework programme under Grant Agreement No 101056799.
