Bunker fuel analysis firm Viswa Lab, engine manufacturer WinGD and maritime measurement systems provider VAF Instruments have signed partnership agreements with classification society DNV GL to provide data to its ECO Insight performance solution service.
Viswa Lab will directly feed fuel test results into ECO Insight to include fuel quality data, such as calorific value or water content in the performance assessment of vessels, while WinGD will deliver engine information and analytics to the platform.
VAF Instruments as a manufacturer of thrust, power and fuel meters as well as propulsion performance monitoring solutions will support the accuracy of hull degradation assessments.
“We are very much looking forward to cooperating with innovative companies like WinGD, VAF Instruments, and Viswa Lab,” says Torsten Büssow, DNV GL’s global head for fleet performance management.
“We want to offer an integrated solution for fleet performance that provides better analytics while streamlining the work of the crew onboard, by avoiding double data entry and additional administrative task.”
ECO Insight is the largest performance solution in shipping with installations on more than 2,000 vessels.
