ABB's Advanced Analytics services provides on demand analysis for energy, voyage, technical data and system condition reporting coming from our analytics team consisting out of hydrodynamic specialists, research engineers and data scientists.
ABB delivers several options in the field of performance and energy analysis.
Hull performance analysis & Before-After Propulsion power analysis
This report provides an analysis on the performance of a vessel before and after some significant or expected change in the hull performance, typically being related to a dry-docking event. Utilizing the OCTOPUS Propulsion Power Breakdown, the report analyzes the real propelling performance change removing the power losses or gains from disturbance phenomena such as wind, squat effect, draft, trimming, sea state, rudder and stabilizer usage and accelerations and decelerations.
Power plant performance analysis
In this analysis the vessel’s power plant utilization is studied and the measured operation is compared to optimal operation. The study reveals what are the key points to focus to improve power plant operation procedures.
Energy storage analysis
This analysis is an addition to the power plant performance analysis by using simulation tools to provide insight to installing energy storage onboard to further optimize the power production.
Turnaround Performance analysis
This report provides analysis results focusing specifically on performance of turnaround. Turnaround in this context is defined as the time period starting from the first harbor of the voyage to the next start from that harbor. The report analyses vessel performance on different areas, such as fuel consumption on different voyage stages, changes in operational behavior, thruster usage and harbor power consumption.
The Operation Modes & Movement Analytics services consist out of two portfolio elements:
Breakdown of operations of individual vessels, or groups of vessels, to allow for design and sizing of equipment for retrofitting or new sales
In this analysis, position data is used to segment the operations of a vessel into distinct types. The operation depend on the class of the vessel, but may typically include quayside/moored, enroute movements, and DP-operations.
The usage of the power system of the vessel as well as other equipment on the vessel depends on the specific kind operations, and being able to separate and derive the duration of specific operations facilitates optimal sizing of equipment.
The analysis is based on combining position data from the AIS system together with mapping data, like for instance location of ports and spool bases. For cases where on board data is available, and the operational mode is available from the power management system, the position data can be used to enhance and complement the analytics of the equipment.
Previous examples of usage of this kind of analysis include analysis of the propulsion system in order to make the case for installation of a backup battery package on a pipe laying vessel. Other examples include the following classes of vessels:
The deliverable typically segmentation of is limited to an analysis of the operational modes for the specific vessel. A report include a breakdown of the different modes in tables and graphical form, in addition to files with mapping data for the different segments that can be visualized in google earth or other platforms. The mapping data can be used for visual confirmations. The analysis can be extended to include custom analysis of specific equipment, if ordered.
Analysis of movement
By combining position data from AIS and mapping data, an analysis of the past operations of a vessel can be made. Examples of derived information can include:
One specific example is the analysis of movement of LNG vessels. The location of on-shore LNG terminals can be derived from mapping data, while the position of FSRU's and other semi-fixed vessels can be determined from AIS data. By combining these data, the past operations of the vessel can be derived, including customers and points of loading.
