Maritime artificial intelligence analytics company Nautilus Labs has partnered with Datum Electronics in the UK, a manufacturer and supplier of torque and shaft power measurement technologies, to integrate their respective systems to provide improved vessel predictive decision support.
Nautilus says that leveraging the data provided by hardware systems like those from Datum can allow for the creation of better vessel-specific machine learning-based performance models to reduce fuel consumption, emissions, and maintenance spend.
“The partnership with Datum Electronics is another big step for Nautilus and demonstrates our ability to interoperate with data from any hardware solution,” said Matt Heider, CEO at Nautilus.
“Our core belief is that collaboration is key to driving innovation. This partnership helps increase access to the high frequency data that powers our leading predictive decision support platform.”
“Datum’s solution is best-in-class in terms of interoperability, as it can be easily fitted on any vessel, and then refitted on a new vessel when the current charter contract ends. Moreover, its accurate thrust data empowers our clients to differentiate hull from propeller fouling precisely in a way that traditional noon data analysis can’t — resulting in optimised maintenance timing.”
Datum Electronics offers maritime sensors and meters to collect high frequency data on torque, thrust, RPM and power, provided as modular systems that can be moved from vessel to vessel even when there is a difference in shaft diameter.
“We’re excited to partner with Nautilus as a leading maritime performance optimisation solution. Together we’re able to offer a best-in-class solution that empowers shoreside teams with predictive decision support and proactive alerting based on real-time vessel data. We’re looking forward to a partnership of two solutions that will drive carbon neutrality in shipping,” said James Lees, Managing Director at Datum Electronics.
