NAPA adds web-based ship performance monitoring

NAPA has introduced a new web-based ship performance monitoring service called NAPA Fleet Intelligence, providing voyage-by-voyage analysis of fuel efficiency for conventionally powered vessels dating back as far as January 2015.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Available through a scaling subscription depending on the number of ships that data is required on, it combines vessel design information with remote-sensed data such as AIS, chart data and real-time environmental data, incorporating algorithms and hydrodynamic calculations developed by NAPA’s in-house ship operations data and analytics team based on detailed ship performance models for each vessel type.

The final report shows voyage-by-voyage data on the route taken, speed profile and fuel efficiency, as well as what the optimised speed profile would have been as a guideline for the next voyage.

The company says that its Fleet Intelligence reports have been verified against real-world ship performance data collected by NAPA’s onboard vessel performance monitoring systems, and accuracy was found to average around 95 per cent.

“Charterers, shipowners and managers have to resolve dozens of conflicting priorities on a daily basis,” said Naoki Mizutani, executive vice president of NAPA Shipping Solutions.

“Productivity, efficient operations, transparency and close scrutiny of costs are more important than ever. Yet, for owners with limited liquid assets and charterers with short term contracts it is neither easy nor cost-effective to install and implement on-board performance monitoring.”

“By ensuring highly accurate ship efficiency data is accessible with a very low barrier to entry, requiring only a web browser and a subscription, NAPA Fleet Intelligence will democratise the use of ship performance data across the industry.”

NAPA Fleet Intelligence uses public sources of vessel information, with over 6.5 million voyages currently in a database growing at a rate of 10,000 voyages every day.{/mprestriction}

    Klaveness Ship Management has expanded its contract with DNV GL after a successful pilot of the DNV GL Veracity platform.

    The contract expansion will see another eight Klaveness vessels use Veracity. According to the companies, the pilot project, which began in 2019, indicated that a reduction in fuel consumption was possible by combining and visualising operational, positioning and engine data.

  • ClassNK, JMU, NAPA complete feasibility study on 3D models for shipbuilding

    ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have completed a joint feasibility study on 3D model-based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.

    Shipbuilding designs are gradually transitioning from 2D drawings to those designed with 3D CAD software. Classification societies, whose plan approvals are currently based mostly on 2D drawings, are also required to develop a scheme for 3D CAD models from their submission to their examination completion.

    This project was conducted to examine the technical development required in each process of plan approval by JMU, NAPA, and ClassNK to realise 3D model-based plan approval. In the feasibility study, ClassNK conducted a trial evaluation for hull structural design on a 3D CAD model of 300,000DWT ore carrier designed and created by JMU, using NAPA Designer, a 3D CAD software application for ship design developed by NAPA, as a 3D model viewer. Plan submission, storage, and notification of examination results were made using the Society's electronic plan examination system NK-PASS.

    The investigation concluded that information required for class approval can be confirmed through a 3D CAD model, and that "NK-PASS" is also compatible with 3D CAD models. The results of this survey will serve as a basis for future technical studies, and the Society will continue to work with the industry to realise 3D model-based plan approval.

    Mr. Hayato Suga, corporate officer and director of plan approval and technical solution division said “This study has proven the future potential of 3D model-based approvals. 3D based design can be the key to improving digital solutions in the ship industry, including the ship design process, approval process and later fleet maintenance. I hope that the entire industry will also quickly realise the many opportunities and increased efficiency that can be achieved as a result of this initiative. The vessels of the future will be able to accommodate much better and safer designs in shorter amounts of time.”
