Voyage and vessel optimisation will drive down ship emissions and operating costs if implemented correctly and industry-wide
Shipowners can achieve considerable savings on bunker expenditure and ultimately reduce air emissions by implementing digitalisation technology.
Big data analytics, connectivity and internet of things (IoT) have demonstrated benefits to ship operators, managers and owners, so has intelligent monitoring of onboard machinery performance.
The next phase of evolution for these technologies is to link in the world’s ports for an integrated effort to reduce fuel consumption, terminal delays and emissions.
Advantages from implementing these and other digitalisation technologies across the whole industry will be discussed during Riviera Maritime Media’s Vessel Optimisation Webinar Week, from 7 September.
During three webinars, experts from all aspects of shipping and technology deployment will present benefits to the industry from vessel and voyage optimisation, machinery monitoring and enhanced voyage planning
This week kicks off with the Voyage and vessel optimisation when making port calls webinar on 7 September where the International Taskforce on Port Call Optimisation will discuss ways for ship operators to work more closely with ports to improve operations.
Together, harbour and vessel operators can reduce bottlenecks and delays in ports, while enabling shipowners to improve voyage efficiency and save money.
During this webinar there will also be presentations from Shell and Marorka covering voyage planning, data sharing and improved vessel performance.
This is followed on 8 September by the Unleashing the power of data to optimise vessel performance webinar, where an expert panel will unlock the benefits of digitalisation for greater operational efficiencies and competitive advantage.
World Maritime University (WMU), Steel Ships, OSM Maritime Group and Marlink will explain how analytics, connectivity and IoT enable shipping to extracting value from voyage and environmental information and performance data.
Steel Ships chief executive Ranjan Varghese returns on 9 September in the Extending intelligent monitoring of onboard machinery webinar, when he will be joined by representatives from NYK Bulkship and Columbia Shipmanagement.
They will explain how monitoring of onboard machinery performance enables vessel operators to extend part life, minimise downtime and protect budgets.
This webinar will cover cognitive analytics that intelligently track and plan maintenance, spare part and consumable inventories.
It will also include discussions on artificial intelligence, predictive maintenance, intelligent scheduling, real-time analytics and fleet management software.
Voyage and vessel optimisation when making port calls webinar is sponsored by Marorka and held in association with the International Taskforce on Port Call Optimisation. Unleashing the power of data to optimise vessel performance webinar is sponsored by Marlink
