May 10, 2017 12:05 am Published by

Kongsberg Maritime (Norway) has announced plans to build the world’s first autonomous, electric container ship. The vessel, which is being developed in collaboration with Yara international, will be used as a feeder vessel to transport products to nearby container shipping terminals in Brevik and Larvik.

Developing systems for autonomous operations is a major opening and natural step for KONGSBERG, considering our decades of expertise in the development and integration of advanced sensors, control and communication systems for all areas of ship operations.- President and CEO, Kongsberg

The ship will initially begin operating in a manned capacity next year (2018) before moving to remote operation in 2019 and fully autonomous operations from 2020.
