'We are delighted to support Evergreen with our latest smart ship solution, SVESSEL which has been developed with the advances in information and communication technologies aiming to complete digitalization of a ship and its applications to efficiently and safely assist operation. We believe digital transformation will revolutionize the maritime transportation industry and drive economic value for all stakeholders including shipowners and operators,' said SHI vice president of SHI Ship and Offshore Research Institute Yong-Lae Shim.
