AIDA selects ABB energy monitoring

EMMA Onboard Tracker - Main view EMMA Onboard Tracker - Main view ABB

ABB reports that German-based cruise operator AIDA has selected its EMMA energy monitoring and management system for use across the company’s 10 vessels, with a view to reducing energy costs and emissions across the entire fleet.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The SEEMP-compliant (ship energy efficiency management plan) EMMA advisory suite will cover seven key areas: propulsion power, propulsion efficiency, vessel trim, hotel and auxiliary power, air condition power per person, specific fuel oil consumption of the main diesel generators and total fuel consumption.

Measurement data onboard will be collated in a cloud-based application for benchmarking, providing shore-side visibility over fleet-wide energy consumption. According to ABB, the installation of EMMA will support AIDA in the SEEMP process, a mandatory measure since 2013 that is designed to improve energy-efficiency.

“At AIDA we’ve realised that in order to achieve maximum efficiency, we must approach energy management onboard clinically and scientifically,” said Jens Lassen, senior vice president Marine Operations at AIDA Cruises.

“This is why we installed ABB’s EMMA. The biggest benefit of having such an advanced energy management system onboard is that mathematically analysed key performance indicators are at your fingertips, not only raw data.”{/mprestriction}

  • ABB and DNV GL make history with first vessel cybersecurity verification

    In a milestone for the marine industry, ABB’s solutions onboard a large passenger ship have been awarded cybersecurity verification from classification society DNV GL. 

    As a result, this vessel became the industry’s first to achieve system compliance under DNV GL’s framework for integrated cybersecurity.

    The state-of-the-art cybersecurity resilience for the vessel was enabled by close collaboration of ABB, the shipowner and DNV GL during the construction phase at a shipyard in Europe. Cybersecurity management processes will continue during the ship’s operations, with the system’s resilience maintained throughout the lifetime of the vessel.

    “It is vital that the maritime industry focuses on cybersecurity as an essential part of both design and operation,” said Johann Melsted, area manager Benelux & France for DNV GL. “Which is why we are so pleased to be working with forward looking partners, who are prepared to engage with this emerging risk and demonstrate their commitment to tackling cyber threats.”

    In order to achieve sustainable shipping, vessels are increasingly fitted with integrated automation systems and digital solutions. As part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the vessel’s systems are more connected than ever before, presenting threat vectors previously unheard of in shipping. This is driving the need for closer and earlier collaboration on cybersecurity between all key stakeholders in the newbuilding process. DNV GL’s Integrated Cyber Security Dependent Systems verification establishes a framework to address cybersecurity levels for the main functions of a vessel – both during construction and in operation.

    While the framework is applicable to any vessel, greater sophistication and deeper integration of operational technology systems in complex vessels such as cruise ships mean that appropriate cybersecurity management is paramount. While digitalisation offers opportunities to measure and manage efficiencies across the entire fleet, securing these data streams is critical to the safety of the vessels’ passengers and crew.

    “ABB recognises the importance of cybersecurity in the marine industry and is working closely with shipowners, yards and classification societies to enhance cyber resilience of ships,” said Juha Koskela, managing director, ABB Marine & Ports. “As vessels become more electric, digital and connected than ever before, it is of vital importance that we equip and empower seafarers with reliable solutions that are cyber secure.”

    The vessel is powered by ABB Azipod electric propulsion system.
