NAPA-DSME Power system tailored for LNG carriers

South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and software company NAPA have announced a new tailored NAPA-DSME Power solution for LNG carriers built by DSME.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The specialist solution will provide measurement of performance and efficiency aboard LNG carriers, including measurement of boil-off.

DSME has been working with NAPA to provide fuel saving optimisation software since 2011. The shipyard has an annual production capacity of 14 LNG carriers, and is aiming to provide this tool for these customers.

“NAPA-DSME Power is integral to our Green Ship concept and we are pleased that a solution has been developed to extend this offering to our LNG customers,” said Odin Kwon, vice president, head of Basic Design team, DSME.

“There is an increasing need for transparency and data sharing between charter parties, and for enhancing the energy efficiency of vessels. Our work with NAPA on NAPA-DSME Power ensures that we can deliver a solution which offers both to owners in one single tool.”

NAPA-DSME Power can be used to optimise trim, route, speed profile, and engine configuration for any given voyage, and has a specialised LNG tool for the measurement of boil-off and its use as fuel. This data is made accessible to officers onboard as well as teams ashore.

In addition, the software package includes an office platform, which provides an overview of fleet efficiency, including tools for analysis of hull and engine performance, and monitoring achievement of the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP).{/mprestriction}

    Klaveness Ship Management has expanded its contract with DNV GL after a successful pilot of the DNV GL Veracity platform.

    The contract expansion will see another eight Klaveness vessels use Veracity. According to the companies, the pilot project, which began in 2019, indicated that a reduction in fuel consumption was possible by combining and visualising operational, positioning and engine data.

  • ClassNK, JMU, NAPA complete feasibility study on 3D models for shipbuilding

    ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have completed a joint feasibility study on 3D model-based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.

    Shipbuilding designs are gradually transitioning from 2D drawings to those designed with 3D CAD software. Classification societies, whose plan approvals are currently based mostly on 2D drawings, are also required to develop a scheme for 3D CAD models from their submission to their examination completion.

    This project was conducted to examine the technical development required in each process of plan approval by JMU, NAPA, and ClassNK to realise 3D model-based plan approval. In the feasibility study, ClassNK conducted a trial evaluation for hull structural design on a 3D CAD model of 300,000DWT ore carrier designed and created by JMU, using NAPA Designer, a 3D CAD software application for ship design developed by NAPA, as a 3D model viewer. Plan submission, storage, and notification of examination results were made using the Society's electronic plan examination system NK-PASS.

    The investigation concluded that information required for class approval can be confirmed through a 3D CAD model, and that "NK-PASS" is also compatible with 3D CAD models. The results of this survey will serve as a basis for future technical studies, and the Society will continue to work with the industry to realise 3D model-based plan approval.

    Mr. Hayato Suga, corporate officer and director of plan approval and technical solution division said “This study has proven the future potential of 3D model-based approvals. 3D based design can be the key to improving digital solutions in the ship industry, including the ship design process, approval process and later fleet maintenance. I hope that the entire industry will also quickly realise the many opportunities and increased efficiency that can be achieved as a result of this initiative. The vessels of the future will be able to accommodate much better and safer designs in shorter amounts of time.”
