Japanese shipowner and manager Shoei Kisen Kaisha, a subsidiary of Imabari Shipbuilding, has agreed a deal with NAVTOR for the delivery of its NavFleet application for implementation across its fleet of managed vessels.
The digital platform will be used to support sharing of real-time vessel data with onshore teams, for monitoring of assets and management of safety, efficiency, and compliance.
Shoei Kisen will integrate NavFleet with the existing NAVTOR digital ecosystem onboard its bulk carriers and container ships, including the NavStation digital chart table, NavBox, its data transfer gateway, and NavCloud cloud computing services.
“After several product comparisons, NavFleet’s integrated service stood out,” said Masaru Matsumoto, Deputy General Manager Ship Department, Shoei Kisen.
“It allows us to check the fleet passage plans in a timely manner from shore on the same screen as the vessel, and to continuously monitor deviations from routes. It’s a very innovative solution.”
