“K” Line expands use of ClassNK-NAPA GREEN

Software provider NAPA and ClassNK have announced that “K” Line (Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd) is to install their ClassNK-NAPA GREEN solution on three additional ships, after a successful trial of the eco-efficiency software on an 8,600 TEU vessel.

“I would like to thank “K” Line for choosing to expand ClassNK-NAPA GREEN to three additional vessels,” said Yasushi Nakamura, representative director & executive vice president, ClassNK.

“Software solutions like ClassNK-NAPA GREEN offer a great opportunity for vessel owners and operators to accurately measure and understand the performance and fuel consumption of vessels, as well as optimise their operations.”

“Along with Wan Hai Lines and Shoei Kisen, “K” Line was one of the first operators to trial the ClassNK-NAPA GREEN solution, and that they have chosen to expand the application to further vessels is the greatest proof that we are supplying the industry with an effective and valuable product.”

The trial installation took place earlier this year. According to ClassNK and NAPA, the self-learning component of the software - the dynamic performance model - was found to be “extremely accurate” during the trial.

“At NAPA our goal has always been to offer solutions for safe and eco-efficient ship design and operations,” said Naoki Mizutani, managing director, NAPA Japan.

“ClassNK-NAPA GREEN is proving itself in all areas of this including delivering proven bunker cost savings and feedback to ship designs to improve newbuilds in the future.”

“At NAPA we understand that ship operators are under increasing public, regulatory and financial pressure to control their fuel costs and boost environmental credentials and are proud to be working with partners like ClassNK to help our customers meet these challenges.”
