TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING latest to implement IoS-OP data sharing framework

TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING of Japan is the latest company to be confirmed as implementing shipbaord data collection operations using the IoS-OP (internet of Ships open Platform) framework, for a newbuild bulk carrier currently under construction.

IoS-OP is an open platform that enables the sharing of vessel operations data among shipbuilders, manufacturers, and related service providers based on a set of data sharing rules agreed by all stakeholders.

TSUNEISHI will operate within this framework to collect actual operational data for the newbuild ship, so that the data collection infrastructure is integrated into the 82,000DWT bulk carrier’s operational systems from the sea trial stage.

The data to be collected includes draft and shaft horsepower, fuel consumption and power consumption from the main engine, generator, and auxiliary machinery, as well as information from the Voyage Data Recorder (VDR). In total, some 800 items will be included in the data collection process.

The collected data will be shared between the shipyard and shipowner through the ‘ShipDC Portal’, provided by ShipDC on behalf of the IoS-OP, and will be utilised for the development of new ship types based on an enhanced understanding of machinery condition and evaluation of the ship’s performance.
