Vessel Performance allows the customer to make informed decisions for more efficient vessel and fleet operations.
Why choose this solution
INCREASE OPERATIONAL AWARENESS
Onboard and onshore personnel get the same operational picture to increase operational awareness and improve ship and office communication.
REDUCE ENERGY USAGE,
COST AND EMISSIONS
Helps to reduce your fleet’s fuel and energy consumption, thereby reducing operational costs and emissions.
Performance indicators and baseline analysis create the potential for further improvement and enable data-driven performance management and decision-making approach across fleet management operations.
SEE IT IN ACTION
ON-BOARD SYSTEM HELPING CREW OPTIMIZE OPERATIONS
Vessel Performance takes data from the ship’s control system and a multitude of sensors on the vessel, logged at frequent intervals and processed in real time. Selected information is displayed graphically using a clear and uncluttered design that focused the crew’s attention immediately to key elements. For example, fuel consumption levels are displayed against a baseline of historical data, showing whether consumption is higher than need be for the conditions. From this insight, the crew could start optimizing operations, for instance, by changing the number of running engines to bring the operating engines into the load range with the lowest specific fuel consumption.
ON-SHORE PORTAL ENABLING FURTHER VESSEL AND FLEET ANALYSIS
All the data collected is encrypted before being transmitted to the Vessel Insight cloud, where more detailed analysis can be carried out on the application. Our cloud-based portal enables fleet managers and operators to compare actual performance data with historical benchmarks. Hull growth and analysis tools help identify long-term trends, and performance indicators and baseline analysis create potential for further improvement. This enables a data driven performance management and decision-making approach across fleet management operations.
The required information ranges from just a few signals on the basic system to hundreds on the comprehensive package. For a modern vessel, the majority of information is already available, and instead of installing new sensors, the system can interface to any KONGSBERG or third party systems to receive data. Ultimately though it depends on how much detail the customer desires. The basic sensor requirement for this application is one fuel flow meter per engine and boiler.
SUPPORTING REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
Vessel Performance provides vessel efficiency and performance information that could further enable the ship to comply with IMO and EU regulations (ISO-19030, Marpol, SEEMP, EEOI, MRV). Having the correct basis for data collection could ease the regulatory process via automated logging of data and extraction for verification and reporting. Vessel Performance is designed with future regulations and reporting in mind.
