The DBMS will grade the excellence of a company’s SMS against measurable expectations and targets without involving the burdens of excessive inspections. The standard describes the scoring methodology and cites the PDCS cycle as a way of implementing continual improvement within companies’ activities.
RightShip has announced the launch of its new Safety Score, with the vision to put operators at the heart of improving standards across the industry. The new Safety Score responds to industry feedback for more transparent methods and a new approach on safety and risk management in the maritime industry.
Maritime cyber technology company METIS introduced an online monitoring and performance evaluation tool for scrubbers, BWTS, M/E and DGs, to address the need of a live overview for the operational status of the critical machinery equipment onboard.
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.
As modern marine vessels and offshore units are equipped with various functionalities for structural and machinery health monitoring, efficiency monitoring, and operational performance management and optimization, the collection of data is carried out through sensors and onboard instrumentation in order to analyze data and provide health and condition awareness, operational and crew assistance, and operational optimization. ABS issued an Advisory paper on data quality for marine and offshore applications.
Many operators monitor specific KPIs, but these are not necessarily make the difference; it is not only the detention ratio, but country, port, age, and ship type that matter. Analyzing more than 33,500 inspections and related data from RISK4SEA – the online intelligence platform providing PSC inspection analytics & benchmarking – the global KPIs for the first semester of 2019 show 1.88 deficiencies per inspection, in comparison to the last running quarter which was 1.76. The detention rate is 2.46%, and the clean inspection rate is 52%.
South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), ship engines provider HSD Engine (HSD) and German MAN Energy Solutions signed a strategic agreement to cooperate in the field of marine engine systems digitization.
Port State Control inspection records suggest safety standards are improving, but a closer examination reveals areas for improvement, says Paul Stanley, CEO, Global Navigation Solutions. Mr. Stanley believes that enhancing data transparency would play a pivotal role in improving the overall shipping safety.
The European Commission’s decision on publicising data relating to the carbon emission performance of individual vessels resulted to mixed reactions as shipowners’ concern stems from the perceived simplicity of the data; that the data fails to acknowledge additional factors affecting efficiency such as cargo and weather.
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.
