Ship Performance Monitoring: SDARI & NAPA to Collaborate

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Shanghai Ship Research and Design Institute (SDARI), the leading ship design company in China and NAPA, the global leader in maritime software solutions and services for ship design and operations, have agreed to expand their co-operation to cover ship performance monitoring.

The enhanced agreement will extend an existing co-operation that includes the application of NAPA software to SDARI’s ship design processes and NAPA’s Loading Computer, which enhances safe operation and maximisation of a vessel’s cargo carriage capacity.

Ship performance monitoring has been added to partnership’s scope in response to a shift in focus in the maritime industry from capital expenditure costs to operating costs, amid sustained high bunker prices. Demand for tools that provide ‘real time’ performance monitoring has risen sharply; playing a critical role in supporting ship owners, operators and charterers as they seek to optimise operational efficiency during the lifecycle of their vessels.

NAPA President Mr Juha Heikinheimo said: “We are honoured to confirm the expansion of our co-operation with SDARI, China’s leading ship designer. Broadening the scope of our partnership enables us to serve the ship owners and operators even better by helping them to monitor and analyze actual ship performance. Ship owners and operators have significant savings potential of up to 30%, which can be achieved with better designs and more efficient, well-planned, monitored, analysed and optimised operations."
