IoS-OP fully utilized in new bulk carrier

IoS-OP fully utilized in new bulk carrier

(Posted on 29/04/21)

IoS-OP*1 has been fully utilized in the bulk carrier built by Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. by concerned parties.

Operation data of the vessel, which was built by Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding and is already in service, has been collected onboard and sent onshore via “FURUNO Open Platform (FOP)*2” of FURUNO ELECTRIC CO., LTD. The data stored at the IoS-OP data center has been analyzed by “Fleet Intelligence*3” of NAPA. The analysis result is shared with Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding in line with the common rules of IoS-OP, enabling the shipyard to monitor the performance of the ship in service. The vessel is the first to incorporate all elements of IoS-OP, the platform for collection, distribution and utilization of the operation data, from its delivery.

The vessel is equipped with energy-saving add-ons developed by Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding, and IoS-OP enables the effectiveness monitoring of these functions in actual operations by the parties involved, which is expected to lead to further optimization.

ShipDC will continuously work for safety of ships, contribution to the environment, and economic rationality through the data utilization as well as further acceleration of the collection, distribution, and utilization of data in the maritime industry with IoS-OP at the core.

*1 A universal platform that enables the sharing of ship operation data among shipbuilders, manufacturers, and related service providers without compromising profits of data providers.

*2 "FURUNO Open Platform (FOP)" is ship-shore data transmission service by FURUNO ELECTRIC CO., LTD. In this case, FOP collects the navigation data from VDR and engine data from engine data logger and transfers these data to ShipDC.

*3 Ship performance monitoring, reporting, analysis, and optimization, powered by NAPA.
