The companies comprising the Swedish-based Stena Sphere represent one of the largest private shipping groups in the world.
The majority of fires that break out onboard vessels start in the cargo. Further on, it has been identified that certain cargo units have a higher fire risk. These units are defined as High Risk Cargo (HRC). Typical HRC units are refrigerated trailers, electrical cars, gas cars, mobile homes, etc.
Today HRC is identified either manually or by existing booking systems. However, there is no means of tracking the final position of the cargo when parked onboard in the cargo space. The company is seeking a reliable and cost effective way to automatically identify and track these HRC units.
We are looking to partner with companies that have a solution or a potential solution that is near to market and is therefore looking for partnerships via a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a technical cooperation agreement.
We would be willing to consider technology from other end-application sectors that is capable of addressing the problem set out here. We are flexible in the approach to required development. Some budget may be made available for development and this could include being actively involved in the development of a solution, technical overview of the end application and provision of testing facilities.
