NAPA and Stena Line were jointly awarded the SHIPPINGInsight Award 2014 at a ceremony in Stamford, Connecticut on October 1st 2014. The award, which recognizes achievements in fleet optimization and ship operating efficiency, was presented to NAPA and Stena Line for their joint work on Stena Line's Energy Saving Program (ESP). NAPA has verified $9million in fuel savings for Stena Line vessels since the start of the partnership.

Since 2007, NAPA for Operations software has supported Stena Line’s ESP by monitoring vessel fuel consumption, speed, departure status and loading data, and transmitting that data transmitted from ship to shore in real time. 

On 22 vessels, NAPA for Operations’ has delivered concise and accurate reporting of fuel consumption to shore teams and onboard tablet computers, which allow officers to follow fuel consumption figures in real time. By providing a clear baseline against which to measure any future savings achieved by efficiency initiatives, Stena Line has been able to design an effective programme to reduce fuel consumption.

The technical department ashore and crews onboard have used the data to optimise vessel operations and ultimately improve fuel efficiency across the fleet, contributing to Stena Line’s goal of reducing fuel volume by 2% during 2014. A significant reduction in an industry when savings as small at 0.5% can mean a considerable cost saving.

Stena Line’s Board has also committed to a further series of projects that will be monitored and verified through NAPA for Operations, ensuring that this award-winning collaboration continues into the future.
