Orion expands maritime software range

Indian maritime software company Orion Marine Concepts has released a range of new updates to its applications, in areas including vessel inspections and performance monitoring.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The company’s NAU ver. 2.0 application has recently been type approved as conforming with EU MRV requirements for monitoring and reporting of emissions, and has also added a pool points functionality to monitor the performance of vessels operating within a pool.

Ship performance is measured on a daily basis against a standard pool ship’s fuel and speed parameters, and alerts are provided if performance deviates from expected levels. Reported data is continuously benchmarked against standard data to provide rolling analytics and fleet KPIs for speed and fuel efficiency, measured with dynamic averages for bunker costs and daily hire rates.

Information is displayed in dashboards, which can be shared with various departments and stakeholders as required.

In addition to this expansion of its NAU application, Orion has also launched a new O-VIS (Orion Vessel Inspection System) software tool designed to standardise data collection from routine vessel audits and inspections.

The assigned inspector completes a series of pre-defined questions on the electronic system which allow reports and analysis to be generated and shared for deficiency listing and tracking. Companies can deploy their own standard audit template within O-VIS for inspectors to complete the inspections and create reports in a standardised format across the fleet.

O-VIS is designed to communicate with Orion’s Q-Strata platform, which stores KPIs and historical data, allowing customers that use both products to run automated data transfers from O-VIS to Q-STRATA.

O-VIS is offered as a standalone web browser-based application or integrated with Q-STRATA in a Cloud-based system.{/mprestriction}

  • GTReplicate averts looming ship-shore data transfer bottleneck

    GTMaritime has launched a new cloud-based tool to automate a key part of the data transfer process between ship and shore, relieving seafarers and shore teams of a growing manual file replication burden. GTReplicate is a cyber-secure solution that automates synchronisation of files and data relating to vessel operation with next to no intervention.

    With the quantity of data shared between vessels and shore-side teams increasing at an accelerating rate, personnel onboard and ashore are having to spend ever more time uploading, downloading and managing file transfers manually. As well as being tedious, such repetitive tasks increase error risks, with the potential for serious financial consequences if the data lost or overwritten is needed to verify compliance.

    Running on GTMaritime’s FastNet data transfer platform, GTReplicate provides a reliable and highly configurable automated alternative that reduces the growing administrative burden on fleet IT managers and frees up crew to use their time more constructively.

    GTReplicate is performance optimised for use in a marine environment. This means it operates across a variety of connectivity platforms, including 3G, 4G, L-band and VSAT, maximising throughput in each case. To further conserve bandwidth, GTReplicate monitors files intelligently, only sending on those that have changed since the last replication.

    Acknowledging the range of specialised software used on ships and the diversity of onboard network configurations between fleets, there are no artificially imposed limits on the type or size of file GTReplicate can handle. It also enables automated bi-directional transfer of selected files, folders, or entire folder structures with multiple mechanisms for maintaining total data integrity. Shore-side email can be used as both replication source and target.

    GTReplicate provides shore-based fleet IT managers with a central cloud-based dashboard for configuring and controlling every aspect of how replication takes place, without having to involve crew. Advanced options include ship-specific task creation as well as pre- and post-transfer processing for maximum flexibility.

    With a nod to an increasing need for stringent security auditing, GTReplicate comes complete with a full suite of notification, journaling and reporting functions as standard, ranging from basic timestamping to granular detail on execution status and files moved. Likewise, it features robust and flexible archiving functionalities.

    Mike McNally, global commercial director at GTMaritime, commented: “Shipowners are now embracing digitalisation as a low-overhead route to improved operational efficiency, but the growing information flow poses challenges for manual processes in ship-to-shore data transfer. GTMaritime created GTReplicate to provide a scalable, secure and highly configurable solution for automating file transfers and averting a data logjam.”

    FastNet is a multi-stream platform designed for today's data demands. Employing a variety of bandwidth management techniques, it optimises, secures and then transfers data packets according to business needs. It will form the core of all GTMaritime products going forward and can be made available to its customers for bespoke digitalisation projects.
