03.02.2011 e-Navigation Underway conference onboard M/S Crown of Scandinavia
Delegates from 21 countries joined the EfficienSea project in the e-Navigation Underway conference onboard M/S Crown of Scandinavia where
e-Navigation services were demonstrated live.
The e-Navigation Underway conference, where the results from the EfficienSea project were demonstrated, was evidently a longed-for event. The conference had a practical approach based on e-Navigation elements such as the services tested in the EfficienSea test bed fleet.

The DFDS cruise vessel M/S Crown of Scandinavia sailing between Copenhagen and Oslo hosted the three-day conference with a comprehensive programme.

The e-Navigation Underway conference was jointly organised by the Danish Maritime Safety Administration and the International Association of Lighthouses and Aids to Navigation (IALA), and supported by the Nautical Institute (NI) and the International Association for Marine Electronics Companies (CIRM).
On the second day of the conference, the Danish Maritime Safety Administration presented the EfficienSea
e-Navigation services, followed by visits to the bridge were the services were demonstrated live.
The conference agreed on a number of conclusions on
the e-Navigation process, the need for standards and regulations, and the value of e-Navigation test beds.
The international e-Navigation community is invited to take note of these conclusions.
