Finland's Bore to Install ClassNK Efficiency Software

Press Release
Monday, June 10, 2013

Shipping company Bore Ltd. to install ClassNK-NAPA GREEN ship efficiency software aboard their 13,625 dwt Ro-Ro vessel 'M/V Bore Song'.

This announcement follows on from sea trials last year aboard sister ship M/V Bore Sea which proved that NAPA operational software had led to a 5.8% reduction in fuel consumption.

The ClassNK-NAPA GREEN software system is a joint development between Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK), the world’s largest ship classification society, and NAPA, the leading software house for ship design and operations. This collaborative software solution for vessel efficiency, launched in 2012, builds upon the shared expertise of both organisations to provide a best in class approach to reducing fuel spend and greenhouse gas emissions whilst also providing compliance with ship energy efficiency management plan (SEEMP) legislation.

Bore has been working closely with NAPA around operational software for vessels for some time. With sea trials last year proving the environmental and financial value of having operational efficiency software, Bore has chosen the enhanced capabilities and feedback systems offered by ClassNK-NAPA GREEN for M/V Bore Song with the goal of achieving even greater savings.

Jorgen Mansnerus, Vice President, Marine Management, Bore Ltd. commented, “Last year’s sea trial of operational software was a significant factor in our decision to choose ClassNK-NAPA GREEN."

Yasushi Nakamura, Executive Vice President, ClassNK commented, “It is heartening to see the industry embracing the financial and environmental benefits that software systems such as ClassNK-NAPA GREEN offer."

Juha Heikinheimo, President, NAPA Group commented, “We have an excellent history of cooperation with both ClassNK and Bore and are delighted that this project has brought together all three companies to their mutual benefit.
