NAPA maritime software expert will collaborate with Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) for enhancing the collection and application of MOL’s FOCUS project , which aims of applying operational data to develop digital applications that enhance the safe operation of MOL’s fleet and reduce its environmental impact. Mitsui E & S Shipbuilding and Weathernews are additional partners to the project.
ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have carried out a joint feasibility study on 3D model based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.
A recent survey found out that the shipping industry sees a vast potential reduction in fuel consumption, while owners, managers, operators and charterers felt that on average, it was possible to reduce 28% of their fuel consumption – a figure that aligns with some recent studies on voyage optimisation.
NAPA, maritime software, services and data analysis provider, collaborates with more than 20 industry leaders and academic bodies, part of the European Commission funded FLARE project to develop a risk-based methodology that will assist “live” flooding risk assessment and control for the passenger sector.
BC Ferries announced that it will implement NAPA’s electronic logbook as its fleet-wide standard solution. Namely, NAPA Logbook will be in use on more than 20 BC Ferries ships by the end of 2020. NAPA Logbook will be available on the NAPA Mobile smartphone interface, meaning reporting can be completed anywhere on board a ship.
A new strategic cooperation agreement among South Korean shipbuilder DSME, Korea Maritime and Ocean University, data analysis provider NAPA and simulation provider AVL, seeks to combine expertise in naval architecture and maritime technology to develop digital ships and related strategic solutions.
NAPA, provider of maritime software, services and data analysis, announced that it has become the first service provider for ClassNK-owned Ship Data Centre’s Internet of Ships Open Platform (ShipDC IoS-OP). NAPA will provide ship performance analytics and voyage optimization capabilities for this universal platform developed to share vessel operational data between stakeholders.
NAPA, a maritime software, services and data analysis provider and ChartWorld, a digital chart agent, announced their partnership to provide artificial intelligence-driven voyage planning and optimization. The solution incorporates modules for evaluating the operational efficiency of past voyages. It then uses this data to improve the efficiency of future transits where there are similar variables and trends.
NAPA, Danelec Marine, ClassNK, and Inmarsat debated the Internet of Things’ potential to reshape the maritime industry. The four parties noted that IoT has already benefited the shipping industry greatly. However, many are still lagging behind digitalization, with costs and lack of IoT skill being the main obstacles.
Together with AIS position and other information, the Tidetech data is integrated into NAPA’s Fleet Intelligence and Class-NK NAPA Green Monitoring programs, which use proprietary algorithms to provide a view of global performance and ship-specific performance analysis.
