Tankerska deploys data analytics infrastructure on tanker

Croation ship owner Tankerska plovidba has undertaken a collaborative project with Metis and Kongsberg Digital to apply real-time analytics to improving its fleet efficiency and ship emissions.

The 49,990 dwt Tankerska vessel Vukovar has been installed with an integrated Metis-Kongsberg package that imports data acquired through Vessel Insight, Kongsberg Digital’s vessel-to-cloud infrastructure, into the vessel and fleet performance analytics platform developed by Metis.

Vessel Insight captures data from shipboard control systems and sensors, translating it into usable sets. Using an edge computer on the ship, data is aggregated, compressed and cached, then uploaded to the cloud.

Once accessed by the Metis platform, it can be analysed for machinery and hull performance, ship emissions, or any other parameter set by the owner. Information is presented via live dashboards and performance updates.

For Vukovar, this includes real-time monitoring of the ship’s machinery and operational status, with analytics covering fuel oil consumption, main engine and diesel generators, operational profile and performance, and electrical power utilisation.

“This installation is part of Tankerska’s commitment to be in the vanguard of the digital transformation that is helping shipping achieve its goals for greater efficiency and lower carbon operations,” said Mario Pavić, CEO Tankerska.

“The integrated solution is both state-of-the-art and straightforward to apply, while the Metis-Kongsberg combination of expertise and experience has met our support needs at every step of the project.”
