Teemu Manderbacka, Senior Research Engineer in NAPA Shipping Solutions, was involved in an expert panel to discuss voyage planning in a webinar hosted by Riviera Maritime Media. This webinar was part of Vessel Optimisation Webinar Week. Panelists in the webinar were representing different viewpoints to voyage planning: ship management, ship owner and operator, as well as voyage optimization software and service providers.
Topics discussed in the webinar were:
- Pre-planning of passage plans
- Voyage optimization from the viewpoint of use of software, weather routing, navigation aids and best practices
- En route monitoring of speed, cargo, fuel management, maintenance and port delays
- Post-voyage analysis and use of collected data for future voyages
Especially delightful was to hear some practical real-life examples of utilizing NAPA Voyage Optimization, as presented by Raoul de Troije, Technical Director at Van Weelde Shipping Group. He shared a clever way to utilize weather routing in voyage pre-planning to play around with scenarios to find best time and place for hull cleaning!
