Shortsea shipping expert, Fast Lines Belgium, has joined forces with Seafar to support Captains of MV Fast Sim. The primary objective of the collaboration is to alleviate the workload onboard vessels operating within a demanding trading schedule. 

“Joining forces with Seafar represents a strategic alignment of our shared vision for the future of maritime transportation,” says Catrien Scheers, the Chair of Fast Lines Belgium. “We believe that integrating Seafar’s proven remote control technology will not only optimise our operations but also set new benchmarks for safety, efficiency, and sustainability in the short sea shipping market.”

Seafar’s advanced technology promises to enhance operational efficiency while maintaining the highest safety standards and create valuable rest time for crews onboard thus enhancing the quality of life onboard. The MV Fast Sim will be supported by Seafar Captains from the Shore Control Center.

With the recently signed MoU on Cooperation Regarding the International Operation of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships MASS by several North Sea countries and the imminent release of the IMO-MASS code, Fast Lines Belgium and Seafar recognise the opportune moment to introduce Seafar’s remote control technology to the short sea shipping sector.

Both entities are actively engaged in discussions with classification societies, flag states, and coastal authorities to facilitate the seamless integration of this innovative solution on the vessel MV Fast Sim.

Both Fast Lines Belgium and Seafar are committed to conducting comprehensive testing, including trials of communication equipment and overall system performance, to ensure seamless integration and compliance with regulatory requirements.
