BSM adds new tool to monitoring platform to improve ship performance transparency

Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) is expanding its LiveFleet monitoring platform with a new “Performance Overview” tool to improve decision making around maintenance work and dry-dock planning.

LiveFleet is a key component of BSM’s class certified smartPAL, a ship management enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. With the release of the new LiveFleet feature, shipowners will benefit from near real-time performance information of their fleet. Users can access Performance Overview via the LiveFleet web solution around the clock from any location.

A declining ship’s performance level has significant impact on operating costs. The new LiveFleet tool provides a comprehensive view of ship’s historical data like hull and engine performance, as well as speed and consumption. The data sources include manual reports, as well as telemetry. From the data analysis, the system creates predictive recommendations for underwater inspections and cleaning. It is supporting proactive and economically optimal maintenance of the ship, and reducing speed loss, bunker consumption and ultimately emissions and costs.

“Performance Overview is the perfect addition to our existing LiveFleet platform. Through this pioneering development, the ship owners see exactly the same information as our shore teams, as well as the crew on board. This unique level of transparency ensures that all three sides can collaborate in real-time, utilising data-driven insights to advance decisions on performance and efficiency,” explains Jeroen Deelen, BSM’s chief operating officer.
