Kongsberg Digital Adds VESPER to Kognifai Marketplace
Kongsberg Digital continues to expand its application offerings on Kognifai Marketplace by adding VESPER, a tool for optimizing operational efficiency through advanced modeling and analytics. VESPER support current environmental reporting like IMO DCS and EU MRV and will also cover future regulatory requirements, including calculation, monitoring and trending of the CII. VESPER features include efficient monitoring of large fleets with drill down capabilities to individual vessels both long term and short term. The software application establishes a framework for continuous fleet optimization with individual performance indicators that are merged into one single fleet performance indicator, thus enabling the entire organization to follow optimization progress at an overall level as well as full drill-down capabilities to individual segments or individual vessels.
One example output is the ability of shipowners and charterers to predict the performance and fuel oil consumption so precisely that vessels can be chartered out on more accurate terms. This may enable an increase in profit margins of up to 10%.
VESPER provides deep insights in hull, propeller, main engine, baseload and boiler performance and data quality. The advanced data validation module provides instant feedback and longer term statistics on error percentages of data received from the vessels.
VESPER can involve the crew onboard in the optimizing process. The Crew Feedback Module presents the information in a more relevant way for the crew, enabling them to act fast and independently on the findings.
