Albrecht Grell: “the next step to greater efficiency”

DNV GL has introduced ECO Insight, its performance management portal for the shipping community.

Combined with the new Navigator Insight data collection and logging software, ECO Insight gives shipping companies a fast track to an effective performance management system.

“ECO Insight allows our customers to take the next step to greater efficiency. After exploiting measures to improve the vessels, like retrofitting or engine de-rating, many of our customers are taking an intensive look at how their vessels are being operated”, says Albrecht Grell, head of DNV GL’s Maritime Solutions division. “In order to enhance the way vessels are operated, the natural starting point is to begin to monitor them in a structured way”, he adds.

ECO Insight provides an easily accessible way to manage the performance of a fleet, including voyage, hull and propeller, engine and systems performance. It adds industry data, such as AIS, weather, or fuel, and provides benchmarking capabilities. Advanced engineering systems, for example hull fouling prediction, are packaged into the portal.

An agreement with the Icelandic energy management company, Marorka, will allow DNV GL and Marorka to integrate data onto the ECO Insight platform, in order to allow customers to manage their complete fleets using the same dashboards and benchmarks– even if different data collection approaches are in place on different vessels.
