During operation the ship will experience added resistance due to fouling of hull and propeller.
The added resistance will lead to increased fuel consumption and thus increased emissions to the environment.
The monitoring of the ship’s performance can be used as decision support in determining when actions to improve performance should be taken.
The performance evaluation is based on a model of the ship and the added resistance from wind and waves during operation.
Logged data on board the ship is used as input to the system and by comparing model and ship behaviour, an index describing the ship’s performance is generated
seametrico promotes a holistic view to vessel performance management where data logged from vessels during sailing is correlated with operational, technical and financial data in order to develop Key Performance Indexes (KPIs) custom to the vessel and the shipping company.
