We use digitalisation and connectivity to add value to our customers' operations. After our performance management system is installed on-board, data from relevant sensors and systems are sent ashore several times daily and analysed using advanced statistical methods. The output from the analysis serves as key decision-making support, whether it concerns saving fuel or navigating through stormy weather.
In our performance management system, we are able to follow trends relating to individual technical systems, such as hull, propeller, engines and boilers, to optimise condition-based maintenance and evaluate the impact of our improvement initiatives.
Performance monitoring have also improved the warning criteria in the on-board decision support system for live warnings and advice in heavy weather, as well as for route planning and training officers for these situations.
The performance management system can verify compliance with rules, regulations and requirements. One example is compliance with the regulations that require the use of low-sulphur fuel when sailing in Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECAs). By monitoring what kind of fuel we are using at any given moment and location, we can prove that we are complying with the regulations.
Improve next generation
Last but not least, performance monitoring is used to feed back in-service statistics into the design of new vessels such as added resistance from wind and waves, required engine output and variations in floating conditions.
