BMT SMART Ltd., a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd., a international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, will showcase its performance monitoring portfolio at Posidonia 2014 next week in Athens, Greece.

The SMART suite of services works by collecting vessel performance data and presenting key information to the crew via the ship’s computer displays.  Real-time performance data is automatically relayed ashore where it is stored on secure servers, and merged with weather readings; while a web platform enables easy management and analysis.

Peter Mantel, Managing Director at BMT SMART, said, “Multiple pressures on the global marine industry, including spiraling operating costs and regulatory requirements, mean that stakeholders can no longer afford to ignore the performance of their fleet. This is driving a demand for Fleet and Vessel Performance Management (FVPM) solutions, with a requirement for data collection, display and analysis services to support optimal decision-making.”

A ship’s energy consumption depends on a number of different parameters and identifying optimal vessel performance requires knowhow and the use of smart data.

Peter Mantel, continued, “Posidonia provides us with a great opportunity to demonstrate to industry how the use of such data can help transform complex information into actionable insights, to enhance efficiency and profitability. We can help our customers to achieve greater insight through access to a rich marine knowledgebase.  Our suite of services can help with compliance, adherence to best practice as well as operational efficiency.”
