Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC) has implemented DNV GL’s ECO Insight fleet performance management software across its entire fleet of 28 tankers, the companies report.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“We have started the fleet performance project with the DNV GL ECO Insight team in summer 2017, and we already see measurable improvements in operating the fleet,” said Ali Shehab, deputy CEO fleet operations at KOTC.

“In addition to this and in order to implement the idea of energy efficiency among the whole KOTC organisation, we implemented an Energy Efficiency Management System according to ISO 50001 which has been recently certified by DNV GL.”

ECO Insight is used to manage performance across various operational areas, including voyage planning, hull & propeller optimisation, and engine monitoring, combining users’ own fleet reports with industry data, such as Automatic Identification System (AIS), weather, or fuel.

Since its launch in early 2015 the software has been installed on more than 1,900 vessels.

“Improving fleet performance is on top of many quality shipping companies’ agenda today,” said Dr Torsten Büssow, DNV GL’s head of fleet performance management.

“KOTC is known in the market for their superior fleet operations and we are happy to support such an advanced company like KOTC to excel even further in achieving savings and operational improvements.”{/mprestriction}
