Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being applied to ship noon reports to provide more accurate data for performance monitoring and analysis
Within this field, GreenSteam Vessel Optimisation has acquired Greece-based maritime software specialist Enerforce Solutions and Consulting to widen its portfolio of ship reporting and monitoring.
Denmark-headquartered GreenSteam said Enerforce’s noon reporting validation and performance monitoring software will enhance its own AI-driven products offered through the Liberty platform. This platform is a central repository for data deriving from noon reports and uses an advanced AI-driven validation process to remove inaccurate data received from vessels.
GreenSteam chief executive Simon Whitford explained the importance of using accurate data for vessel performance and emissions monitoring, which is becoming increasingly crucial for shipowners to ensure vessels are compliant with existing and upcoming carbon-cutting regulations.
“Quality data is essential to building and extracting the full value from GreenSteam’s AI and machine learning models,” said Mr Whitford.
“By drawing data from validated noon reports, our customers will be able to more effectively generate cost savings and identify where they need to take action to ensure the latest emissions regulations are being met.”
Liberty cleans data through a stringent validation process. It monitors inputs with inbuilt logic to warn users on ships of any anomalies at the time of data entry. It then provides shipowners and manager with an accurate overview of vessel performance compared with traditional noon reporting.
Alongside improved vessel management, Liberty can be used to demonstrate regulatory compliance against mandatory reporting including European Union, IMO and Tanker Management and Self Assessment element 10 and the upcoming Carbon Intensity Indicator and Energy Efficiency Operations Index.
Liberty software removes requirements for installing high-frequency data sensors, while providing a cost-effective solution to enhancing noon report data quality.
Former Enerforce managing director Dimitrios Tagkalis will become GreenSteam general manager in Greece.
With shipowners and managers turning to AI and machine learning products for fleet and vessel performance monitoring, a new product was launched this week by Greece-headquartered DeepSea Technologies.
It introduced Cassandra Light as a hardware-free AI-driven platform able to deliver accurate vessel performance insights from noon reports. Cassandra Light enables charterers and shipowners to gain visibility and transparency on vessel performance and reduce the environmental impact of ship fleets. It monitors and visualises CO2 emissions, notifies users of fuel over-consumption and provides an overview of key performance metrics, helping owners to reduce fuel costs.
Cassandra Light provides alerts when it detects performance anomalies and critical events and enables charterers and shipowners to benchmark their assets against the global fleet.
DeepSea said this platform uses AI to validate reported consumption figures for more accurate noon report data.
DeepSea co-founder and chief executive Roberto Coustas said Cassandra Light is “cutting edge technology accessible to everyone” and is an “ally for charterers and shipowners at all stages of digitalisation. It supports their journey to performance transparency, maximised profitability and decarbonisation,” said Mr Coustas.
“By accurately capturing the wide range of variables that impact vessel performance, Cassandra Light offers the opportunity to see these elements in a new light that enables critical business decisions to be made with greater confidence.”
