XVELA Targets Shippers

XVELA plans to integrate shippers into its data sharing platform, which was recently rolled out to terminals and carriers. Currently, carriers and terminal operators share electronic data files such as arrival and departure stowage plans, load lists and plan visualisations in the XVELA platform, which seeks to optimise the efficiency of terminals through better planning and collaboration.

Navis, today announced Hull Monitor, a new module for the fleet performance management software Bluetracker. Hull Monitor tracks the degradation of the hull performance – resulting from self-polishing, fouling or damage – by way of speed loss calculations and visualizations, and correctively accounts for influencing factors such as weather (in accordance with ISO 19030).

Hull monitoring software unveiled to improve ship efficiency

A new hull monitoring service will assist ship operators to improve vessel efficiency and scheduling of drydockings. Cargotec Corp subsidiary Navis has added a hull monitor module to its Bluetracker fleet performance management software. Hull Monitor tracks the degradation of the performance of a ship’s hull and propeller affected by biological fouling and damage. The module measures changes in ship speed and accounts for factors that affect these calculations, such as weather conditions.

North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven upgrades to Navis N4

North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven GmbH & Co. (NTB) has successfully upgraded from Navis Express to the N4 terminal operating system (TOS). The terminal went live with N4 3.1 earlier this year without disruption to operations according to the software developer.

The effects of the condition of the ship's hull and the propeller on the bunker consumption of a ship are significant and measurable. The new industry standard ISO 19030 - developed by shipping companies, paint and propeller manufacturers, data analysts and scientists - which recently took effect, describes the appropriate methods for measuring changes in the hull and the propeller performance.

Kalmar President: The Fight for Terminal Automation

Kalmar's President Antti Kaunonen has discussed the aggressive way in which ports and terminals are developing automation. At this year's TOC Europe, Kaunonen explained what will influence a terminal to become fully automated and where innovation is taking hold.

Navis has announced that North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven GmbH & Co. (NTB) has successfully upgraded from Navis Express to the N4 terminal system. Due to effective project planning, preparation and collaboration with Navis, NTB went live with N4 3.1 on 1 May, 2017 without disruption to the terminal’s high volume operations, and continues to perform optimally with the new system in place.
