Maritime software provider Sea and Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping have formalised their collaboration by signing a Knowledge Partnership Agreement. With the agreement, Sea and the Center become official partners, committing to a long-term strategic collaboration and contribution to accelerate the decarbonisation of the maritime industry.

Sea is a leading provider of commercial software solutions for global maritime trade and delivers data-driven solutions that power better decisions to enable sustainable shipping for charterers, brokers, and owners. It was born as a technology spin-off from the Clarksons Group.

As the Center’s knowledge partner, Sea will be providing access to its pre-trade intelligence & analytics tool that processes over 68.7 billion AIS data points annually with in-house derived insights, including visibility of activity across ports and vessel deployment. The tool can also provide emissions evaluations for analysis of green corridors and waiting times and fleet speed developments, in order to estimate emission reduction potentials.

In welcoming Sea to the Center, Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, said: “Reliable data empowers us to make informed decisions. With Sea, the Center will get important insights into global fleet operations which can help us fast-track the development and implementation of green corridors, technology projects, and progressive regulatory frameworks.”

In joining the Center, Peter Schroder, CEO at Sea, said: “The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is the leading provider of the innovation and collaboration the shipping industry needs to achieve our decarbonisation targets. Our platform will accelerate the Center’s work in enabling future solutions, concepts, and standards – including modelling viable decarbonisation pathways.

“Sea’s purpose is to power better decisions to enable sustainable shipping, so we’re proud to be joining this powerful alliance of global organizations. We look forward to working as a collective to develop the full zero carbon maritime value chain from well to wake.”
