ZeroNorth has launched new Vessel Optimisation service, focused on two industry performance challenges: hull fouling and auxiliary boiler consumption.
The new service uses data and machine learning to generate actionable insights on how to improve operational procedures and better manage the condition of onboard equipment, to assist owners and operators in reducing fuel consumption and emissions from their fleets.
Hull performance monitoring is managed through real-time risk assessment and alerts for long idle periods. The service identifies the best time to clean a hull and can proactively prevent severe fouling due to idle stays, the company says. On the consumption side, the software provides insights into current and past auxiliary generator and boiler consumption to ensure vessels are operating at optimal efficiency levels.
ZeroNorht notes that the new Vessel Optimisation service also integrates with its Vessel Reporting functionality to provide a holistic approach to reported data management – and particularly noon reports – placing them in an operational context to detect and address detrimental reporting patterns and ensure vessel performance is accurately reported.
“We are delighted to unveil our new Vessel Optimisation service, which identifies inefficient vessels and optimises the performance of fleets, solving a huge hurdle for green global trade. The service generates actionable insights to proactively prevent severe hull fouling and better understand auxiliary boiler consumption, enabling more informed, intelligent and sustainable decision-making,” said Pelle Sommansen, Chief Product and AI Officer, ZeroNorth.
“One of the major challenges when managing and operating large fleets is prioritising inefficient vessels which need attention. Scanning specific insights from a fleet to identify low performers is a tedious process and causes missed potential.”
“ZeroNorth’s Vessel Optimisation service will provide ship owners and operators with a complete fleet overview with clear performance indicators, significantly improving vessel performance and ensuring that the global fleet performs optimally, cuts costs and reduces emissions, whether at sea or in port.”
