  • Good Seamanship 2.0 - Best practice of analyzing fleet performance data

    "Good seamanship" is the unwritten code of conduct for seafarers that serves to foster maritime safety and also now efficiency. As a rule, long-term navigational experience and good judgment are essential. Good judgment is the ability to assess risks and make clear-cut decisions as well as the right decisions. This not only requires proven practical experience, but also a deep understanding of the complexity and correlations of ship operations.

    In the digital age, the ship operation data, which is continually gathered with the help of software, provides fact-based foundations for individuals to base their judgments on, which to date have been influenced more heavily by their own experience. This will help them to make the best decisions possible both in terms of troubleshooting and monitoring processes or recognizing typical data patterns. The "best practice" applications described in the brochure, including those from BestShip, the energy efficiency subsidiary of E.R. Schiffahrt, the tanker shipping company Ernst Jacob and other software users, all demonstrate this. It takes very little data to gain valuable knowledge that can help reduce wear and tear on machines and systems from incorrect practices as well as to save fuel and lube oils and, as a result, demonstrably lower CO2 emissions.

  • Manual performance monitoring: Bluetracker

    With Bluetracker we offer a new performance monitoring tool that simplifies manual data entry on board the vessel, validates the data during entry, standardizes them fleetwide and visualizes them for benchmark analysis.

  • Automatic performance reporting: Bluetracker

    Bluetracker is an onboard automatic vessel performance monitoring and reporting tool that collects data via standardized interfaces to the data sources. What makes Bluetracker [automatic] so special is the way in which it increases data density and data quality.

  • Bluetracker Web application is the open window to your fleet’s performance management. Whether collecting the vessel’s performance data manually or automatically – the Bluetracker Web Application visualises them and provides them for benchmark analysis and 3rd-party reporting.

  • The Energy Efficiency Monitoring (EEM) panel is an easy-to-use onboard display monitoring the vessel’s performance in real-time. Thanks to an integrated fleet-specific KPI benchmark system the EEM Panel allows the crew to take corrective actions and improve the vessel’s efficiency accordingly.

Interschalt MACS3

  • Cargo operations are a sensitive issue for every single vessel of your fleet. If vessel-specific stability and stress criteria are ignored when loading cargo, the ship might capsize, break up or twist. Protect your assets from damage or loss by choosing a loading computer that is type-approved and certified for on-board use by all major classification bodies. MACS3 has firmly established itself in the international market over the last 25 years with a market share of over 65%, offering solutions for all types of vessels.

  • For More Efficient Stowage of General Cargo

    The new module MixStow (formerly known as MixCargo) offers a wide range of advanced features. Thanks to a newly enhanced data structure, the module ensures a better visualization for planning the onboard load.

  • IMDG amendment 37 came into force in January 2015, while amendment 26 can be used until end of 2015. As of January 2016 the amendment 37 become mandatory onboard and valid only. If your vessels are still equipped with an older version of DAGO I module, it is now high time to upgrade it accordingly.

    INTERSCHALT offers the update to amendment 37 of DAGO I module for all container vessels operating with the loading computer Seacos MACS3.

  • The Trim Optimization Module TROP is an integrated part of the MACS3 Loading Computer System.

    The TROP Module helps the user to optimize the trim and draft of the vessel with respect to main engine power and fuel efficiency. This is done by changes in ballast water, but the TROP module also gives information about the current fuel efficiency during the planning process and replaces ballast water by cargo.
