Namura Shipbuilding introduces ClassNK-NAPA GREEN

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

January 26, 2016

The fleet performance management and optimization system ClassNK-NAPA GREEN jointly developed by leading classification society ClassNK (Chairman and President: Noboru Ueda) and maritime-software, services and data analysis company NAPA has been introduced to a newbuilding by Namura Shipbuilding. The move was spearheaded by Namura Shipbuilding based on the shipowner’s acceptance.
 
ClassNK-NAPA GREEN collects voyage data from the VDR, data logger and other onboard devices and provides high precision performance analysis through its self-learning Dynamic Performance Model. 
 
Namura Shipbuilding’s introduction of ClassNK-NAPA GREEN aims to use voyage data and performance analysis of actual voyage speed, draft and full cargo load performance to provide feedback for optimized ship design. For example, voyage data collected from ClassNK-NAPA GREEN can be used by the shipyard to indicate optimized hull shape and engine specifications for newbuildings.
 
Namura Shipbuilding anticipates a further increase in demand for voyage support systems and is strengthening its competitiveness by proactively installing the award-winning software on a newbuilding and providing its clients with added value. Through the provision of the performance monitoring and optimization software ClassNK-NAPA GREEN, ClassNK and NAPA are not only supporting optimized operations, but also contributing to the development of enhanced ship design.
