In 2012, HHI introduced an upgraded version of ACONIS-DS (Digital Ship Version) that has been praised to transform prevention diagnosis and ships maintenance systems by collecting and analyzing ship voyage information.
Its outstanding design and innovative features have also been recognized by major global design awards including Red Dot in 2010 and Designpreis Deutschland on 2011. Since 1993, HHI has exported ACONIS to 240 clients in 46 countries, and generated a total of USD 216 million in sales. HHI plans to expand the application of ACONIS that have been mainly adapted for containerships and tankers further to LNG carriers, LPG carriers and special purpose vessels.
