DIGITAL VESSEL PERFORMANCE

CHALLENGE

High fuel costs, emission laws and regulations, and increasing reporting requirements give rise to a structural need for more efficient operation of ships and logistics chains.

Accurate insight into the performance of ships is often limited and often not up-to-date on a consolidated fleet level.

The ‘Modal Shift’ requires shipping companies, shippers and customers to improve sustainability and to optimise and report the performance of coastal and inland vessels.

SOLUTION

 iP3 | Performance Improvement Platform. A modular and data-driven optimisation platform that provides insight into the performance and efficiency of your vessel, fleet and operations, and enables continuous improvement and sustainability.

iP3 provides (near) real-time insight into ships’ operational performance and can periodically report the insights so that continuous optimisation demonstrably results in increased economic returns with less environmental impact.

FROM DATA TO INSIGHT

To optimise and report the performance of ships, a fleet and related operations, we use the following approach:

MONITOR

Our iP3 optimisation platform is installed on board. Via our unique sensor and measurement concept, data is collected, stored and organised on a timelapse and location basis.

UNDERSTAND

Data is made transparent with the help of our dashboard so that we can better understand the dynamics, dependencies and performance indicators of your vessels or fleet. A "fingerprint" of the current performance is created for any condition .

OPTIMISE

Based on the insights obtained, performance indicators are (semi) automatically adjusted to the constantly changing situations.

The information is continuously accessible both on board and on shore.

REPORT

Various performance statistics are offered online via a dashboard or by e-mail, in XLS and/or PDF.

TECHNOLOGY

iP3 | Performance Improvement Platform

Using the iP3 | Performance Improvement Platform, any ship can be digitised. The platform provides insight into the current performance of your vessel and optimises the propulsion for any condition.

Depending on what sensors and systems you already have on board, additional smart sensors are installed.

Via our data-acquisition and communication system, the data is collected in (near) real time and processed into usable information.

This information can be displayed on any device via a dashboard and shows the current and periodic performance, also during continuously changing conditions.

Performance data is stored time- and location-dependently. New insights can be gained by cleverly linking, comparing, interpreting and analysing performance data and other information. In this way, we can derive the “ideal” performance (e.g. speed, rpm, power) for a desired condition (loaded or unloaded, upstream/downstream, water depth, wind speed, etc.).

On the basis of the stored information, extensive reports can also be produced, including
  • loading, unloading and sailing times
  • loading, unloading locations and tonnage
  • Route and distance travelled
  • % utilization and empty sailing
  • fuel consumption per hour, kilometre or (partial) voyage
  • Engine hours
  • CO2 emissions per tonne-km
  • Bunker quantities and moments
