Fuel and energy conservation package for Norwegian Cruise Line
Norwegian Cruise Line has adopted a complete fleetwide solution from NAPA for Operations. The package consists of decision support and operational programs for voyage planning, optimization, follow-up and monitoring tools, and support Norwegian Cruise Line's aim to be an even more energy-efficient and profitable cruising business.
On board the ship, the navigational officer enters the destination information to NAPA Voyage Optimization, which optimizes the voyage route and speed profile, taking into account the latest weather and sea forecasts. The departure loading condition of the ship is calculated and planned for the optimum energy efficiency using the NAPA Loading Computer.
During the cruise, navigational personnel can follow-up in real time the efficiency of the ongoing voyage with NAPA Voyage Optimization. Engineers can easily view summary figures for each passed voyage, enabling them to assess different energy conservation methods using NAPA Voyage Reporting which combines NAPA Logbook data with various items collected automatically from the ship's automation systems.
All operational data collected and produced with NAPA for Operations is reported to a centralised reporting portal called NAPA Office. This offers tools for easy fleet monitoring.
Antoine Gurrey, director of Norwegian Cruise Line's Fuel Budgeting and Energy Conservation, is impressed: "A task that used to take several hours can be completed in a couple of minutes with the Data Analysis module in NAPA Office".
