ClassNK and maritime software company Napa have announced that Taiwan-based Wan Hai Lines Ltd. has chosen ClassNK-Napa Green ship efficiency software for use on Wan Hai 516, a 4680 TEU vessel delivered by CSBC in April 2013.

 

This marks the first time that the operational optimization and SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan) solution will be installed commercially on an existing vessel. The announcement was made at a signing ceremony attended by representatives from Wan Hai Lines, ClassNK, and Napa held at Wan Hai Lines headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan on May 7, 2013.

 

The ClassNK-Napa Green system is a new comprehensive software system developed by Napa and ClassNK to help owners and operators reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions and smoothly comply with new IMO SEEMP requirements which entered into force at the beginning of 2013. While the new software is already in use as part of verification testing on a container vessel operated by Japan’s Shoei Kisen, this agreement with Wan Hai Lines marks the first commercial success for the system.


With more than 70 container vessels under operation, Wan Hai Lines is one of Asia’s leading container vessel operators. Speaking during the signing ceremony Mr. Sanders Jong, Vice President Marine Division, Wan Hai Lines highlighted the importance of the new technology for the company: “Improving the fuel efficiency of our vessels is one of the most important challenges we face as an operator today. After examining a variety of technologies, we chose the ClassNK-Napa Green system based on its comprehensive and user friendly set of tools for trim, speed and route optimization, as well as for the dynamic performance model, which we hope will allow us to achieve a higher level of environmental and economic ship management.”
