NAPA adds web-based ship performance monitoring

NAPA has introduced a new web-based ship performance monitoring service called NAPA Fleet Intelligence, providing voyage-by-voyage analysis of fuel efficiency for conventionally powered vessels dating back as far as January 2015.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Available through a scaling subscription depending on the number of ships that data is required on, it combines vessel design information with remote-sensed data such as AIS, chart data and real-time environmental data, incorporating algorithms and hydrodynamic calculations developed by NAPA’s in-house ship operations data and analytics team based on detailed ship performance models for each vessel type.

The final report shows voyage-by-voyage data on the route taken, speed profile and fuel efficiency, as well as what the optimised speed profile would have been as a guideline for the next voyage.

The company says that its Fleet Intelligence reports have been verified against real-world ship performance data collected by NAPA’s onboard vessel performance monitoring systems, and accuracy was found to average around 95 per cent.

“Charterers, shipowners and managers have to resolve dozens of conflicting priorities on a daily basis,” said Naoki Mizutani, executive vice president of NAPA Shipping Solutions.

“Productivity, efficient operations, transparency and close scrutiny of costs are more important than ever. Yet, for owners with limited liquid assets and charterers with short term contracts it is neither easy nor cost-effective to install and implement on-board performance monitoring.”

“By ensuring highly accurate ship efficiency data is accessible with a very low barrier to entry, requiring only a web browser and a subscription, NAPA Fleet Intelligence will democratise the use of ship performance data across the industry.”

NAPA Fleet Intelligence uses public sources of vessel information, with over 6.5 million voyages currently in a database growing at a rate of 10,000 voyages every day.{/mprestriction}
