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}
