United Arab Chemical Carriers (UACC) has signed a contract with India-based Orion Marine Concepts for the installation of fleet performance and monitoring software.
The deal includes the rollout of Version 2.0 of the fleet management software suite on UACC’s fleet of 25 vessels and the office.
It was due to be installed by the first week of January this year, according to a release.
Reliable on-board data collection, decision support for the crew, reporting to the officers and ship-to-shore data communications are key features of the software, which was developed in-house by Orion.
The new Version 2.0 of fleet monitoring includes the evaluation and comparison of voyage KPIs, such as speed and distance travelled, fuel consumption (total and tonnes per day), fuel tonne per mile performance and other metrics.
In addition, the system can also give voyage, propulsion & machinery optimisation, tracking & evaluation, fuel consumption and emissions plus data & Analytics.
The system complies with EU & IMO’s monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) regulations for emissions control.
