MOL, NAPA AND CLASSNK COMBINE TO CUT GROUNDING RISKS

MOL, NAPA AND CLASSNK COMBINE TO CUT GROUNDING RISKS

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 

Finland-based maritime software, services, data analysis provider NAPA, Japanese Classification Society ClassNK and transportation group Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) are jointly developing a system to intelligently monitor and mitigate grounding risks and increase operational safety.

The system will combine data sources to provide users with a robust and accurate platform to better monitor the fleet. It will provide alerts and notifications to crew onboard, as well as those onshore when vessels operate in a non-compliant way. The aim is to increase the overall safety culture and reduce the risk of vessel grounding. This system will be based on NAPA Fleet Intelligence, a voyage optimisation platform focusing on safety and efficiency, which is now being extended to monitoring voyage safety.

MOL is testing the system in practice for fleet-wide safety monitoring. NAPA is collaborating with MOL during the proof of concept phase, while ClassNK is providing its expertise throughout the full product development. The proof of concept is scheduled to be completed soon, with the software set to be fully developed and deployable in Spring 2021, with further development to cover other navigational risks than grounding.
