Danelec Marine is preparing to roll-out out a digital upgrade across a fleet of 100+ vessels belonging to an inspecified owner, following an order placed in March 2022.
The ships will be connected to the DanelecConnect Cloud platform where a carefully selected package of performance monitoring applications will unlock operational insight to reduce fuel consumption and enable the customer’s extensive decarbonisation strategy.
As one of the largest single DanelecConnect projects undertaken by the Danish marine safety and digitalisation technology specialist, Danelec will work closely with its wholly owned subsidiary KYMA AS, whose Shaft Power Meter will provide engine and bridge officers with vital propulsion data for more cost-effective ship handing with a lower carbon footprint.
Reflecting the collaboration focus of its cloud ecosystem, Danelec has also engaged DanelecConnect third party solution partners to deliver further operational decision-making support based on a variety of parameters that when monitored and analysed correctly will contribute significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions across the fleet.
One of these third party applications will take DanelecConnect managed data from the fleet and analyse it along with operational data from more than 1,000 other ships to help improve fleet efficiency, reduce fuel costs and lower CO2 emissions, in addition to supporting navigational and environmental compliance.
While end-customer value through data analysis and operational insight is delivered by the KYMA and third party applications on DanelecConnect, Danelec’s low-cost Vessel Remote Server (VRS) will be installed on all vessels as the service agnostic link to the internet for dependable and secure data transfer to the cloud.
“With pressure across the industry to reduce GHG emissions it’s vital that ship owners and managers place emphasis on digitalization but finding the right cost and performance balance can be challenging,” said Casper Jensen, CEO, Danelec.
“This is why we developed a standardised approach that combines platform, a choice of applications and enabling hardware in a managed solution that can monitor and unlock insight on any kind of data generated on board, while being lower-cost and easier to roll-out than some more customised solutions,” concluded Jensen.
