An automatic docking and leaving maneuver test was conducted in Japan.
For the first time in the world, a ferry’s automatic docking and leaving systems were tested at Oarai Port in Japan.
Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (MES-S), Mitsui OSK Lines, Ltd. (MOL), Tokyo University of Marine Sciences and Technology (TUMST), Akishima Laboratories (Mitsui Zosen) and MOL Ferry jointly developed automated docking and docking lift systems tested successfully.
Using the results of this test, the project team will perform tests of automatic berthing and unberthing at real berths with other ship types, aiming to develop a versatile technology.
