Following a successful pilot project begun in 2019, Klaveness Ship Management (Klaveness) is expanding its DNV GL Veracity contract to include another eight of its vessels.

The pilot project showed that reduction in fuel consumption can be achieved by combining and visualising operational, positioning and engine data. Veracity partnered with Arundo Analytics (Arundo) to install Arundo Edge Agent software onboard three ships and to stream data onto the Veracity platform. On Veracity, the data is secured, stored, contextualised and combined with other data sources such as position. This information is then made available by Arundo and Klaveness for analytics, visualisation and data-sharing.

Klaveness aimed to reduce fuel consumption and operational costs on the three pilot vessels- particularly related to optimising Auxiliary Engines operation. Another main objective was to make the operations more transparent between the onboard officers, office personnel and manufacturers by having updated data available onshore.

By combining data from different systems in a common dashboard, Klaveness could immediately detect inefficiencies in engine utilisation, leading to higher than optimal fuel consumption as well as higher maintenance and spare part costs.

“Klaveness has done a meticulous pilot of the solution with full installation onboard three vessels streaming data to the Veracity Cloud - for almost one year. The data is contextualised according to the vessel information standard promoted by ISO and DNV GL. They have also leveraged the Veracity support for remote work. This shows digital thought leadership and lays the foundation for a fleet scale data management solution,” said Mikkel Skou, Director of Veracity. ”We are very pleased that Klaveness now chooses to expand the project based on the positive results.”

Klaveness reported improved communication between crew and superintendents, as a result of having common data to talk around.

Ernst Meyer, COO Klaveness said: “In Klaveness we have high digital ambitions and by live-streaming sensor data to shore we can change our operating models both onboard and in the office. The outcome can be less accidents, less CO2 emissions, higher revenues and lower costs. Through Veracity/Arundo we have established the opportunity. Our job now is to establish new ways of working to utilize the data streams.”
