Due to new IMO regulations and social environmental awareness, sustainability and fuel consumption reduction are becoming the priority of the shipowners. Also, shipping is an extremely competitive sector and operational expenditures are being stretched by all means. For example, fuel consumption represents around half of the operational costs for the biggest shipping companies (between 5 and 10 million euros per year per ship). D-ICE is working on a high-end system, OCEANiCS, tailor-made with specific functions for hybrid ships. With one single system, mariners will be able to do navigation; from nautical charts management and planning, weather routing, autopilot, monitoring and optimization.
