Digital Ship Vessel Performance Optimisation
forum at Nor-Shipping

The VPO Forum at Nor-Shipping will look at the latest practise and methods optimising vessel performance with the help of digital technology.

Our morning session reviews how shipping companies are improving fleet performance overall, with talks from Nordic Tankers, Solvang, Höegh Autoliners. We have a review of using machine learning to improve vessel performance from Greensteam and advice from RINA about what data driven fleet performance management looks like.

In the afternoon we'll get more into equipment, with a talk on how to optimise maintenance schedules for best performance from the senior VP maritime with seismic operator PGS. We'll discuss computer simulation to optimise propeller design, and better ways to gather, communicate and use data from machinery while the vessel is in operation.
