Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has decided to equip 80 of its operated bulk carriers with an energy-saving operation analysis service.

The company said it would install NAPA Fleet Intelligence (NAPA FI) with Noon Report developed by Helsinki-based software company, NAPA Ltd, in an effort to reduce its environmental footprint.

MOL explained that the service, which is a part of the company’s data-driven initiatives, is expected to optimize propulsion performance and reduce the environmental impact even for vessels on short-term charter contracts.

NAPA FI does not require installation of an operational data collection device onboard as it relies on information gained from vessel logs and the Automatic Identification System (AIS), and analyzes propulsion performance using NAPA’s engineering knowledge and data analysis.

The system verifies the effects of measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from MOL-operated vessels, such as more effective engine output control, timely measures for hull and propellers maintenance to prevent reduction of propulsion.
