Digital Shipyard

At thyssenkrupp Marine Systems we strive to implement digital solutions in all stages of our value chain and apply digital innovations where they bring added value. The Digital Shipyard is about solving problems for our customers and making their lives easier through digitalization.

Digital underwater communication in maritime shipbuilding

In recent years, many efficient transmission methods have been developed for mobile communications. Electromagnetic waves for wireless data transmission now enable large bandwidths and data rates of several GBit per second in this area - even over long distances. Digital underwater communication is an exception.

Innovation in deep-sea fishing: How we avoid by-catch and protect the oceans

With oXeanpedia we make a small contribution to minimize the impact of fishing on the ecology of the oceans.

Fuel cells for powerful underwater propulsion

Fuel cells are seen as a great hope when it comes to efficient drive technologies for the future. The innovative fourth-generation fuel cells developed by our experts make submarines more powerful and enable them to remain underwater for longer.

oXeanseeker: the neural network for fishing with less by-catch

Fishermen still find a lot of fish in their nets that they had absolutely no intention of catching. The oXeanseeker aims to reduce this by-catch drastically – and to contribute toward the exploration of the oceans at the same time.

oXeanseeker: Seeing the ocean through new eyes

Even today, the depths of the world's oceans are still largely unknown territory. With the autonomous underwater vehicle "oXeanseeker", thyssenkrupp's start-up "oXeanpedia" now plans to shed light on the darkness – to the delight of fishermen, researchers and the maritime environment.

Submarine components from 3D printers go into series production

Industrial components from state-of-the-art 3D printers have decisive advantages over conventionally produced components. By setting up their own team of specialists for additive manufacturing, the naval experts at thyssenkrupp in Kiel are now pursuing a major goal: the rapid and cost-effective series production of 3D-printed submarine components on the local fjord.
