Power and automation technology group ABB (ABB) and software solutions supplier NAPA have signed a cooperation agreement for ship design and operation.

The companies will cooperate to offer the NAPA Loading Computer and the electronic NAPA Logbook under ABB’s Vessel Information and Control (VICO) portfolio as part of a complete advisory solution devised to optimize ship efficiency.

The NAPA Loading Computer undertakes a wide range of calculations related to hydrostatics, intact stability and ship longitudinal strength. The system is installed onboard 1,400 ships, including tankers and passenger vessels.

The NAPA Logbook offers traditional logbook functionality in an electronic format and is widely accepted by flag states. Its combination of common data storage, automation interfaces, reminders, guidelines and checklists prevents misuse and unlocks far-reaching additional reporting capability. Customers benefit via reduced workload for personnel onboard ship and the minimized potential for human error.

ABB’s Vessel Information and Control (VICO) portfolio for marine applications offers a broad range of advisory and fleet management reporting solutions, drawing on shipboard sensors and associated instrumentation to deliver integrated automation, vessel management and control. The integrated approach has been devised to optimize vessel performance, enhance energy efficiency, improve onboard equipment reliability and availability, and promote operational safety.
