Fuel costs are still the biggest single operating cost for all major ship types and with impending legislation driving the use of higher price 'clean fuels' in Emission Control Areas the cost of operating vessels will at least remain high. Controlling these costs and the related emissions remains an important
consideration for ship operators.
Intertrac®Vision allows ship owners to explore
performance prediction uncertainties, enabling
them to make more informed decisions
Intertrac®Vision is a software package that predicts hull performance.
Highly trained Intertrac®Vision consultants can advise Owners on multiple coating and application
scenarios to allow informed decisions about
the maintenance and future profitability of their
assets. This is a free, no obligation consultation service.
The predictions are bespoke to specific vessels and are entirely dependent on vessel type, trading route, speed and activity.
The software is designed to be informative and transparent. There are built-in opportunities to offer full explanations of what the tool is using and why. Transparency is the key to instilling confidence in the science behind the tool.
With options to influence all the major investment decisions such as preparation levels, coatings choice, scheme selection and even days in dry dock, Intertrac®Vision will allow Owners to see the financial and performance benefit of available options before they make important investment decisions.
- Transparency and choice for product selection
- All fouling control technologies and application scenarios covered
- Individual vessel parameters and detailed explanations throughout
- In-built schemes and scheme cost calculator
- Return on investment calculation per year
- Carbon credits calculation option
How has this been achieved?
Utilizing internal expertise, external academics and specialist institutions, our combined research has led to the development of revolutionary algorithms or software models.
These models consider the effects of a number of key parameters on vessel performance such as; Average Hull Roughness, Coatings Roughness, Biological risk and Fouling Control product performance.
By combining these models, using Computational Fluid Dynamics, we have been able to relate surface roughness and power requirement for all vessel speeds.
