With sensor information on board LNG vessels and enrichment using the laws of physics and mathematics, Eniram has developed the technology to precisely ascertain the real time rate of boil-off on an LNG vessel at any instant and in any situation that the vessel finds itself. The LNG rate of boil-off is not an unknown entity as such, as it can be calculated in test conditions in a laboratory. This has however not yet been attempted on board in a scientific manner due to its sheer complexity.

In my last post “When Uber enters the shipping industry” on July 20, I used Uber to illustrate just how disruptive technology can be for traditional business like ours. In this article I wanted to move ahead and illustrate how exposed we are for similarly disruptive elements, and how soon we should expect to see them.

As a keen private sailor and having spent the first 10 years of my career at sea, I simply can’t help myself from stopping and admiring old sailing vessels if I happen to walk past one. I think there is something vastly satisfying in sailing a sailing vessel of proper size and displacement. I can’t really explain why, it just is. Perhaps the romantic in me is painting an over-glorified picture compared to what it really was like to sail these majestic vessels for a living.

Virtually every shipping company today uses noon reports to understand and monitor what is happening on their ships. These reports are traditionally sent by the Captain every day, based on data gathered manually by the crew. The content and format of the report is usually pre-agreed by the company and sent at noon. The noon report has grown over the years to give a snapshot of what has happened on board the ship since the previous noon i.e., in the last 24 hours.

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds, cannot change anything – is a saying that we must constantly remind ourselves. Most people agree that the pace of change today is faster than it has ever been before. All indications are that change is only going to get more rapid.

In previous posts I have stated that there is a clear savings potential in coastal routing. Many think that weather routing is the only way to optimize routes but actually in the coastal (short sea) routing weather is not a major factor.

In the previous post, I was stating that coastal routing is as vital part of the voyage optimization as the weather routing. Almost all the ocean legs starts with coastal routing and cruise traffic and feeder traffic is almost fully coastal. Also I stated that in costal traffic fuel saving potential is in average of 5%. But how is that possible?

The industrywide trend of digitalisation means many companies now find themselves overwhelmed with large amounts of data. When the data begins streaming in, there naturally arises the question as to what is to be done with all this data.
