The new software monitors the operational costs and evaluates the performance towards benchmarks like the Charter Party contract, and will try to give the operators the ability to monitor and track their vessel’s performance from a set dashboards and reports. The Charter Party Monitoring features warnings of any issues that could result in disputes towards the Charter Party contract.
The timing is right for the industry to explore their current back end policies and procedures associated with safety and security which are largely manual and error prone.
ABB said that its upgraded vessel control software package is delivering the measurable operational efficiency gains promised to StenaLine for the freight ferry Stena Scotia within a month of commissioning.
