United Arab Chemical Carriers begins software implementation

UACC (United Arab Chemical Carriers) is rolling out a fleet performance and monitoring system developed by India-based Orion Marine Concepts to its vessels and office, with the new software expected to be implemented before the end of January 2017.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The software will monitor fleet performance and energy efficiency, with the aim of optimising operations across the 25 vessels owned and operated by UACC.

The implementation of the system will include set-up of onboard data collection processes, and provision of a decision support system for the crew, with ongoing reporting to the officers and shore.

Orion Marine Concepts notes that UACC is being supplied with the new Version 2.0 of the fleet monitoring system, which includes evaluation and comparison of voyage KPIs such as speed and distance travelled, fuel consumption, and fuel ton per mile performance.

Other features include voyage, propulsion and machinery optimisation, tracking and evaluation of vessels, emissions monitoring and generation of analytics in compliance with EU and IMO MRV regulations for emissions.

In related news, Orion Marine Concepts has also released O-Invent, a new inventory manager app for Android devices.

The application features a barcode scanner along with a section to manage recorded inventory, with all the information saved within an Excel file for export to other devices and formats.

The smartphone camera is used to scan the barcode, look up the item within the Excel spreadsheet database file, and save the scan as an item added to the inventory count.{/mprestriction}
