NAPA and ABB partner on efficiency

NAPA and ABB today announced that they have signed a cooperation agreement whereby NAPA’s Loading Computer and electronic Logbook will be offered under ABB’s Vessel Information and Control (VICO) portfolio, as part of a ship efficiency solution.

Finnish software house NAPA says that its Loading Computer is already installed on board 1,400 ships, including tankers and passenger vessels. The system performs calculations related to hydrostatics, intact stability and ship longitudinal strength.

The Logbook combines data storage, automation interfaces, reminders, guidelines and checklists to prevent misuse and human error. NAPA says that the electronic format is widely accepted by flag states.

Headquartered in Zurich (Switzerland), automation technology group ABB provides advisory and fleet management reporting solutions through its Vessel Information and Control (VICO) portfolio. It draws on shipboard sensors and associated instrumentation to deliver integrated automation, vessel management and control services.

NAPA and ABB say that offering the Loading Computer and Logbook under the VICO portfolio will provide customers with a range of solutions for ship safety, day-to-day operations and optimised efficiency.
