The integrated ship operation and performance management system Kawasaki Integrated Maritime Solutions, jointly developed by K Line and Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group, has received ClassNK’s first Innovation Endorsement for Products & Solutions.
The society launched Innovation Endorsement last July in cooperation with technological front runners as a rapid certification service to establish appropriate evaluation criteria for innovative technologies. The Products & Solutions certification category covers digital equipment and software technology installed for use on vessels.
The Kawasaki Integrated Maritime Solutions system features a variety of applications in which operational data is automatically sent to the shore from vessels and utilized for early detection of abnormalities, using live data monitoring and performance analysis to maintain and manage fuel efficiency, and give optimum navigation support to maintain safe and economical routing.
ClassNK’s experts verified functions of the system that included operation data collection, ship-shore data communication, data transaction record & alarm, data aggregation for monitoring & analysis, automatic trim chart generation, performance calculation & analysis, and weather routing, and issued the certificate.
