The BMT Group subsidiary says that the new functionality will allow reports to be compiled at the end of a ship’s voyage, capturing metocean data, fuel usage and emissions. These reports can then be compared with the agreed Charter Party conditions.
This tool allows the investigation of non-conformance, using the recorded vessel data, says BMT SMART.
With the data automatically collected on-board, the new module delivers an event history and a speed profile. More comprehensive tables can provide navigational, performance and environmental data in the form of Noon reports.
“This is a result of a comprehensive study of the agreement between owners and charterers and is an exciting step forward in monitoring the various factors that affects a ship’s journey,” said Peter Mantel, managing director at BMT SMART. “This is a logical area for BMT SMART to embrace as our expertise is focussed on developing and advancing technology that improves vessel performance.”
