Seaspan to implement ECO Insight

Seaspan Ship Management is to implement the ECO Insight fleet performance management software package from DNV GL, to improve fleet monitoring and energy efficiency.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Seaspan has spent considerable effort to develop its capabilities around fleet performance,” said Peter Jackson, director of the projects and technology department at Seaspan.

“Close monitoring of the performance of our fleet is in line with our mission of safe, reliable and economical operations. The ability to measure hull degradation very accurately was what made this performance management solution interesting for us.”

“We also welcomed the fact that ECO Insight uses the data we already collect on board our vessels. It uses our existing vessel reporting system and enriches the information we provide with industry data such as AIS benchmarks or satellite weather and full CFD baseline computations.”

ECO Insight provides tools to manage voyage, hull & propeller, engine and systems performance. The portal comes with an optional on board vessel reporting system called Navigator Insight, and has been adopted for the management of approximately 600 vessels since its launch in September 2014.

“I am very pleased to welcome Seaspan to our ECO Insight community,” said Torsten Büssow, head of DNV GL’s fleet performance management unit.

“Fleet performance management is the next wave in energy management and offers significant benefits to owners, managers and operators. For example, vessels of the same age and size can differ 20 per cent and more in terms of their yearly fuel oil consumption. ECO Insight can help customers understand why this may be the case.”{/mprestriction}
