Diamond Bulk Carriers and Mitsubishi Ore Transport complete vessel data analytics project

Diamond Bulk Carriers and Mitsubishi Ore Transport have partnered with Nautilus Labs and Hoppe Marine to carry out a fleet performance optimisation data project, including the implementation of hardware, software and sensor systems for vessel data analysis.

Diamond Bulk Carriers will use Nautilus’s decision support software to improve its operational processes for a vessel owned by Mitsubishi Ore Transport, through analysis of high frequency vessel sensor data. Hoppe Marine, an existing Nautilus Labs partner, was tasked with management of instrumentation and installation services, as well as signal aggregation, to gather the data required.

Due to pandemic-related travel and port restrictions, Mitsubishi Ore Transport’s crew were guided through a remote crew-led installation to bring the systems online. With that process successfully achieved, Hoppe will now be able to transmit the vessel’s data back to shore as part of its ‘Data Butler’ programme that Nautilus will integrate with via an API.

“Having a crew install sensors was the first time in our and Mitsubishi Ore Transport’s history. We’re excited to collect and receive our vessel’s data to optimise our vessel operations,” said Shusuke Miyazaki, General Manager at Diamond Bulk Carriers.

“Nautilus’s interoperability and the ability to integrate with any third-party provider or OEM made the deployment into Hoppe’s Data Butler easy and seamless, allowing our teams to access a single source of truth, fostering cross-departmental collaboration. Deploying Nautilus Platform is an important step for our business in achieving meaningful savings and reduced emissions.”
