The Computerized Analysis of Ship PERformance (CASPER) Service monitors hull and propeller efficiency, helping to optimise maintenance schedules and increase the performance of individual vessels.

Ship performance data can be used to calculate charter rates, review development of hull and propeller resistance, and determine intervals for hull cleaning and propeller polishing to maximise speed and fuel efficiency.

Teekay has signed up for a two-year extension of CASPER that will cover 23 LNG carriers, with a further seven ships to be included as they come under Teekay management. The company has been using CASPER on all its vessels since 2009. 

“The CASPER service is a valuable tool in our operational and performance arsenal,” said Graham Cattley, technical manager projects, Teekay.

“The regular reports assist in forward planning of hull and propeller in water maintenance, and this is fundamental in improving the efficiency of the vessels.”
