Seatankers Group has completed the installation of a new cloud-connected ship performance monitoring system on more than 120 ships, working with Denmark-based Danelec.
The technology is designed to support fuel efficiency improvements and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by collecting and delivering data from onboard sensors, combining Danelec’s Kyma Shaft Power Meter, Vessel Remote Server (VRS) and DanelecConnect maritime IoT infrastructure.
Configured in co-operation with third party equipment manufacturers to ensure compatibility with onboard machinery, the system makes the Danelec VRS a central hub for collection and transfer of data from the Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) and other sensors, including shaft power meters and fuel flow meters, as well as power management and alarm monitoring systems.
The data collected and transferred from the vessels is processed and analysed within the DanelecConnect cloud infrastructure, so the information can be accessed anywhere in world.
“’Digitalise 2 decarbonise’ is an important part of our decarbonisation strategy. Digital twins increase our ability to identify future hazards and to take timely and qualitative actions, maintaining our position as a premium operator,” said Lars Pedersen, CTO, Frontline Management, a part of Seatankers Group.
“Our digitalisation strategy demands vendors with a proven track record of delivering cost-effective, high-quality solutions for the acquisition of critical vessel data and we’re confident that both the onboard and cloud aspects of Danelec’s ship performance monitoring solution will help us achieve ambitious environmental sustainability goals.”
