Yang Ming Vessels First to be Awarded ABS Smart Ship Notations

Yang Ming has announced that ten of their 2,800 TEU class container vessels currently under construction are to receive Smart Ship notations from international classification societies, American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), DNV GL, Bureau Veritas (BV) and Classification Society (CR). The notations mean that Yang Ming holds a leading position on the path to marine digitalization and intelligence.

The first batch of vessels to be awarded ABS Smart notations in the world will be five of the series vessels – “YM Celebrity”, “YM Continent”, “YM Certainty”, “YM Credibility” and “YM Continuity.”

The notations include Smart INF (Data INFrastructure for Smart Function implementation) & Smart SHM (Structural Health Monitoring).

The recognition denotes that these vessels are equipped with smart information infrastructure, including big data acquisition and cloud transmission, which enable ship structure endurance monitoring and future structural health awareness through ABS’s customized analysis program to ensure safe sailing.

Bronson Hsieh, Chairman of Yang Ming, said: “We are proud to lead the industry in the development of smart functionality, which tends to enable owners and operators to improve their operation. By working with ABS we are demonstrating that the Yang Ming vessels are at the forefront of today’s vessel technology.”

As technology continues to evolve, smart ships have quickly become a trend in the field of shipbuilding and maritime. Starting this year, these awarded ships will be delivered and deployed to Yang Ming’s intra-Asia services.
