AET to install energy and emissions management system

AET has ordered the NAPA-DSME Power software system for installation on four newbuild 319,000 deadweight tonne (DWT) VLCC vessels.

The systems will be installed at DSME’s shipyard in South Korea, with the scheduled delivery of the first of these vessels set for January 2013.

NAPA-DSME Power has been designed as part of a collaboration bewteen software house NAPA and Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. (DSME), with the companies claiming that it can be used to save up to 5 per cent of a tanker’s fuel costs.

Using sensors integrated within DSME’s latest tanker designs, the system monitors energy efficiency, emissions, fuel consumption and trim.

This data is immediately accessible to officers onboard, along with weather updates, arrival times and other key performance indicators to inform decisions and enable efficiency optimisation in real-time.

The software can also be used to assist in maintaining compliance with energy and emissions monitoring and reporting regulations, which are anticipated to grow over the next few years, not least through the upcoming Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) legislation that takes effect from January 1st 2013.

"With tightening environmental regulations and increasing operational overheads, the maritime industry continues to face an evolving and challenging market," said Matti Salo, president, NAPA for Operations.

"At NAPA, we are committed to developing products that deliver tangible benefits to customers, directly supporting their ability to effectively manage this cycle of change."

"In choosing NAPA-DSME Power, AET has selected an innovative approach to operations management that will provide them with the ability to benefit from fuel efficiencies whilst simultaneously managing their environmental impact."
