DNV GL to add fuel sampling data to software package

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) and DNV GL have signed a cooperation agreement to develop a new module for DNV GL’s ECO Insight fleet performance management software.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}This new module will have access to what the partners call "the world’s largest fuel sampling database" to allow owners, operators and managers to determine how fuel quality affects performance differences between similar vessels.

"DNV GL and VPS have started to work on the design of the new module in January, the second half of 2015 will be used to implement it into ECO Insight," said Dr Torsten Büssow, DNV GL’s head of fleet performance management.

"Our web-based portal structures this vast amount of data, which would normally be difficult for individual owners and operators to analyse – enabling them to make more informed business decisions."

ECO Insight is used to manage the performance of a fleet, including voyage, hull & propeller, engine and systems performance, leveraging  a shipping company's own fleet reports and adding industry data, such as AIS, satellite weather, or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) information.{/mprestriction}
