Norwegian pool operator Hansa Tankers has confirmed a partnership with StormGeo to roll out its fleet performance management software, s-Insight, to all vessels in its pool.
Hansa Tankers operates 50 chemical tankers ranging in size from 19,000 to 33,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT). The company has chosen s-Insight to establish a unified data collection system that enables the pool and its partners to document and assess the environmental performance of their vessels.
s-Insight is a customisable fleet management system that integrates and organises weather, voyage reporting, sensor data, performance levers, and expert assistance in one analytics tool. The solution gives vessel owners, operators, and managers timely and actionable information to maximise voyage and vessel performance. In addition, its reliable data reporting system ensures the fleet is always compliant.
Hansa will use s-Insight to transfer voyage data in real-time to improve ship-to-shore communication, enhance insight around bunker management, reduce fleet CO2 emissions, and strengthen its focus on increasing the pool’s fleet-wide sustainability.
For Hansa Tankers, s-Insight provides opportunities to monitor the environmental impact on emissions, improve environmental performance, and keep the fleet compliant with EU MRV, IMO DCS, the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII), and Sea Cargo Charter regulations. Particularly useful is the new CII Simulator, a key module in s-Insight and a tool that monitors CII compliance status and reveals the impact of commercial parameters on CII ratings.
“StormGeo’s s-Insight provides tools that assist us in managing the environmental and commercial performance of our entire fleet in one dashboard. By also adding weather and routing data to the operator decision-making toolbox, we gain new and actionable insights that enable immediate, measurable CO2 impact on our trade, which in turn will positively enhance the pool’s financial performance and environmental footprint in the coming years,” said Torfin Eide, COO at Hansa Tankers.
“StormGeo’s powerful and actionable CII Simulator gives us a tool enabling a better understanding of the commercial impact of the CII in our trades,” said Eide. “We acknowledge that the earlier we integrate CII simulation into our daily operations and decision making, the better we can manage the impact on CII performance and thereby enhance our competitive advantage in the market.”
“s-Insight also presents an opportunity for our pool participants to assess their performance and environmental footprint through diverse, investigative, and out-of-the-box system features. Participants can thereby also use s-Insight to validate any measures taken towards improving operational energy efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint with KPIs for continuous monitoring of their own vessel performance,” Eide added.
