NAPA adds data analysis expertise to MOL project

NAPA has joined Mitsui O.S.K. Lines’ (MOL) FOCUS project for enhancing the collection and application of ship operation data.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} FOCUS is a multi-year project developed by MOL with the aim of applying its operational data to develop digital applications that enhance the safe operation of its fleet and reduce its environmental impact. Additional partners include Mitsui E & S Shipbuilding and Weathernews.

As part of FOCUS, NAPA will develop various safety and environmental applications, combining its hydrodynamic modelling expertise with big data solutions.

NAPA and MOL have already collaborated successfully in the past. NAPA has provided analytic services to measure and enhance voyage and vessel performance since 2014 and NAPA has executed the performance analysis and reporting for nearly 100 of MOL’s time-chartered bulk carriers with zero onboard installation since 2018.

NAPA will build on this legacy to create powerful, user-friendly tools for both shoreside and shipboard teams to use in the FOCUS project.

“We are proud to have been selected by MOL for this project and are excited to become a part of FOCUS. The clock is already counting down for shipping to drastically reduce its carbon footprint by 2050, therefore we need to start collaborating now to develop the solutions that will get us where we need to be, while ensuring that safety remains a top priority and continues to improve. From working with MOL for many years, we have demonstrated how NAPA’s combination of ship modelling and big data expertise can deliver results across a range of vessel types, regardless of onboard hardware. We are looking forward to working as part of FOCUS to create a new generation of solutions,” commented Naoki Mizutani, executive vice president of NAPA Shipping Solutions, at NAPA.{/mprestriction}
