TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING Co., Ltd. will collect actual operation data for a new ship under construction by IoS-OP.
The data to be collected includes the draft and shaft horsepower as well as the information from Voyage Data Recorder (VDR), and fuel consumption and power consumption from the main engine, generator, and auxiliary machineries, which amounts to approximately 800 items. The monitoring system is installed in the 82 000 DWT bulk carrier currently under construction, and its data measurement will be started during the sea trial. The collected data will be shared between the shipyard and shipowner through the ‘ShipDC Portal’ provided by ShipDC on IoS-OP, and will be utilised for the development of new ship types based on the understanding of machineries’ condition and the evaluation of the ship's performance.
ShipDC will continue to work together with its stakeholders to provide an infrastructure for the collection, distribution, and utilisation of data in the maritime industry, with IoS-OP at the core, and will pursue safety, environmental contribution, and economic rationality through the utilisation of data.
