To date, more than 50 companies have signed up to be tenants at COVE. These range from small start-up companies located in the on-site incubator to large companies like IBM, Lockheed Martin and Lloyds Register who are interested in tapping into the innovation activity at the facility.

“You’re Having Twins!”

It’s the kind of news that will rock your world, and the arrival of the Digital Twin is about to do the same for ship owners and operators everywhere. Activities currently the norm in shipbuilding and fleet management, things like 3D models, training simulators, and asset monitoring, are well-positioned to merge under the Digital Twin banner. If we get it right, the result will be a massive value boost to Canada’s fleet. A panel of marine industry innovators based in Newfoundland will share their early ideas on Digital Twin innovation, and connect with the audience to hear what operators are hoping for in this emerging new era of ship management.
