ECOPRODIGI is an ambitious project proposal by an industry-driven consortium aiming at increasing eco-efficiency in the Baltic Sea Region maritime sector through digitalisation.
The project embraces the fact that a considerable share of the ecological footprint of ships is generated in the operations and processes along the whole vessel life-cycle. The whole value chain of design, building, stowage, usage, maintenance, and conversion processes should be smartly streamlined in terms of eco-efficiency.
Eco-efficiency refers to operations resulting in increased value with less resources and environmental impact. Measuring, visualising and optimising the maritime industry processes in the shipyards, ports and during voyages would enable more efficient, proactive, and data-driven decision-making, thereby reducing many kinds of emissions, waste, and energy-consumption.
