Maritime software, services and data analysis provider NAPA launched a new concept of ship performance monitoring, the web service NAPA Fleet Intelligence.

The cloud-based web service for fleet operational insight will offer quick and easy access to high-accuracy performance monitoring for any vessel, regardless of ownership or charterer, according to NAPA. For charterers and cash-strapped owners, it will deliver simple, transparent, affordable and accurate efficiency data to drive competitiveness and profitability with zero installation and zero disruption to operations.

Available through a scaling subscription depending on the number of ships customers require data on, NAPA Fleet Intelligence delivers voyage-by-voyage analysis of fuel efficiency for any conventionally powered vessel dating back as far as January 2015.

It combines vessel design information with remote-sensed data such as AIS, chart data and environmental data, incorporating algorithms and hydrodynamic calculations developed by NAPA’s in-house ship operations data and analytics experts, 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 so that customers can improve the next voyage.

NAPA said that its Fleet Intelligence reports have been verified against real-world ship performance data collected by NAPA’s on-board vessel performance monitoring systems, and accuracy was found to average around 95%.

“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,” Naoki Mizutani, Executive Vice President of NAPA Shipping Solutions, said.

“We see this as a game changer, making the shift to data-driven business decisions possible for any maritime business, which is in line with our mission to improve safety and efficiency of the whole industry,” Mizutani added.
