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.
Maritime software, services and data analysis provider NAPA, announced that DSME chose the 3D model-based NAPA Steel software to streamline design processes and be up to date with the 21st century naval architects and structure designers. DSME will use the software at both the initial design stages, and detailed design stages.
Esa Henttinen, Executive Vice President, NAPA, discusses how 3D design and simulation tools are keeping cruise passengers safe in a rapidly evolving segment.
NAPA informed that existing users of its performance monitoring systems can achieve compliance with new MRV reporting requirements after applying updates. Therefore, users of NAPA’s systems can generate automatically created annual or voyage-by-voyage MRV reports and export them as CSV files, requiring only a small process change by crew.
NAPA launched a new concept of ship performance monitoring, NAPA Fleet Intelligence, that is expected to offer high-accuracy performance monitoring for any vessel, regardless of ownership or charterer. The service delivers voyage-by-voyage analysis of fuel efficiency for any conventionally powered vessel dating back as far as January 2015.
