TechBinder uses IoT to make ships more efficient and sustainable.
TechBinder improves human-machine interaction by using new technologies, like IoT, and combining them.
CEO Bram van den Boom: 'Managing ships is still very much based on experience and intuition. However, systems on board ships are becoming increasingly complex and intelligent. In the process industry, remote control rooms and data systems support all operations. We see that the installations are very similar to those of a vessel, so there is a lot to learn.'
Shipyards and shipping companies are thus able to prevent defects and improve vessel performance. During the period ahead, the Port Authority will examine how TechBinder’s products and knowledge can add value to the management and optimisation of its own patrol vessels.
TechBinder was one of the participants of the PortXL 2021 innovation accelerator programme. Together with nine other start-ups and scale-ups from all over the world they took part in this 100-day programme. PortXL’s intensive programme helps young enterprises to hit the ground running when they enter the market.
PortXL was launched in 2015. So far, it has run ten programmes, fast-tracked more than 100 start-ups and scale-ups and facilitated the signing of more than 220 contracts.
