Saab Contributes to Green Shipping Routes

The Green Routes concept assists ship captains in making the right decisions at the right time. With the right information, a captain can reduce speed and still reach port on time, avoid costly anchoring and conserve fuel.

 

Routes are designed not only to optimise speed, but also factor in other parameters, such as weather conditions and sensitive seabird areas. When a number of factors have been weighed in, a Green Route is set according to a global standard (IEC 61174 ed4).

Green Routes is an international system where Saab is contributing its existing port and sea traffic management systems. The concept can also be used for vessel safety as an anti-collision tool.

An important part of Saab's work to reduce its environmental impact is research and development collaborations aimed at creating sustainable solutions. Through new, resource-efficient technology, Saab can help to reduce environmental impact, which is necessary in order to compete in a global market in the future.
