Tecon Rio Grande registra novo recorde de produtividade

O Tecon Rio Grande, terminal de contêiner do Grupo Wilson Sons, registrou em julho recorde histórico de produtividade em operação portuária. No dia 25 de julho, foram realizados 140 movimentos por hora durante a operação do navio Monte Tamaro, da linha da Costa Leste da América do Norte.

Beginning in November 2015, the 15-person NTB project team worked jointly with Navis to migrate the SPARCS 3.7 and Express 2.9 systems to N4 piece-by-piece, focusing on the core system first, followed by the surrounding applications and systems, as well as thorough testing throughout each phase to ensure the system would perform optimally during the go-live.

Navis Sets Sights on 'Enterprise TOS'

Implementing a terminal operating system (TOS) that runs multiple terminals from one central location is the future for port operations, according to Navis. The software developer said that such a system, referred to as enterprise TOS, could save ports money by reducing the need for IT staff, hardware systems, software systems and databases at every terminal, while still providing a tailored approach.

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.

Fleet Software Digitizes Hull Maintenance

Navis has invented a new module called Hull Monitor to track the underwater hull performance of all vessel types and aid fleets in reaching ports on-time while sticking to a specific fuel consumption.

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.
