EfficienSea2 is led by the Danish Maritime Authority and has 32 dedicated partners from 12 countries in the Baltic Sea region and beyond, all carefully selected to ensure maximum impact of the developed solutions. Our EfficienSea2 partner consortium unites technical and human factor experts from the leading part of the maritime industry and academic institutions, European authorities and international standard-setting interest organisations. Together, we are strong in creating new and innovative solutions, transforming solutions into international standards and getting the solutions all the way to our end users.

The overall aim of our EfficienSea2 project is to create and implement innovative and smart solutions for efficient, safe and sustainable traffic at sea through improved connectivity for ships. Getting the maritime domain connected.

Today, information exchange between ships and shore is unstable, costly and marked by old technology and non-standardised solutions. This increases the risk of accidents, inefficiency and administrative burdens. Also, incentives to comply with emission regulations are limited, which adversely impacts the environment. The need for operational solutions in the maritime domain is significant.

EfficienSea2 is a demonstrator in the Arctic and Baltic Sea and the first generation of a coherent e-Navigation solution. Through global collaboration, use of open-source software and an explicit aim for standardised solutions, Efficiensea2 is paving the way for a global roll-out of e-Navigation.

EfficienSea2 develops the essential solutions that are the prerequisites for taking e-Navigation from testbeds to real-life implementation: Safety- and efficiency-boosting end user services, platforms for services, a groundbreaking Maritime Cloud framework and smart communication channels. That is, the first generation of a coherent e-Navigation solution.
