Shipowners and Managers

The transition to more efficient shipping is inevitable.

Current performance monitoring systems, such as noon reports, are not sufficient to support this transition.

Real-time, fact-based information is essential for charterers to support in making decisions to improve vessel performance, optimize voyages, and benchmark vessel performance by correcting for weather impact.

We4Sea enables shipowners and -managers to monitor, benchmark, and optimize the performance of their fleetin real-time, without investing in onboard monitoring equipment.

With over 30 years of experience in the maritime industry, we know how difficult monitoring your vessels can be. This is why we developed a new tool, with the aim to make bunker consumption monitoring and therefore fuel efficiency easy. Based on big-data technologies, we can monitor and report on any vessel, within 24 hours. This is how We4Sea helps ship owners and managers make better decisions, based on detailed, data-driven insights on all aspects of their operations — technical, logistical and operational — that impact fuel efficiency of ships.

Our approach: a Digital Twin

We4Sea provides an objective, data-driven monitoring solution for ships.  Our unique Digital Twin concept is a radical new way of monitoring sea-going ships in real-time.  We4Sea designs a unique and scientifically supported, algorithm-based Digital Twin for every monitored ship. We use over 80 unique characteristics of the ship to create this Digital Twin model, which is fed with real-time position and weather data.  Interested in how it works? Download our Whitepaper for detailed information on our Digital Twin.

This unique approach provides very accurate calculations of fuel consumption and emissions, enabling you to:

Full-service performance monitoring

We provide a full web service, that provides fleet owners with access to operational insights without the need for costly onboard installations of hardware and sensors. So no investments (CAPEX), no port-visits, no burden on the crew or your office staff. With an unrivaled short set-up time, an up-to-date dashboard, and in-depth insight into the effect of new technologies on your fuel efficiency, We4Sea is the perfect partner for analyzing and improving your fleet!

Stay on top of things

As you know, your vessel can be impacted by its usage. Hull fouling and its impact on vessel trim can affect bunker consumption, increasing the benefits of good bunker consumption monitoring. Perhaps the greatest benefit of our We4Sea tool is, therefore, its exceptional ability to provide you with real-time, useful information about your vessel.

The advantages for shipowners and managers

As a shipowner or manager, there are many advantages and benefits to be found in using our We4Sea tool. The Digital Twin enables many different processes which would’ve otherwise been very time-consuming or downright impossible. To give you an idea of these, we’ve listed the benefits below.

We’re here for you!

Our goal is to make your life as a shipowner or manager easier. We do this through the Digital Twin of your ship, which exists in our We4Sea tool. The aforementioned benefits can all be yours, but we can also imagine you still have a few questions. If that is the case, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We will gladly provide you with the answers you seek.

Performance monitoring

Our performance monitoring platform allows cargo- and ship owners to monitor the performance of their (chartered) ships. Monitoring the vessels carrying your goods has never been an easy task, since the ships’ noon reports were the only way to keep track of ship performance – until now. Our digital performance monitoring platform allows for the remote monitoring of ships in the best way possible, giving you direct and real-time insight into vessel performance and critical parameters.

How performance monitoring works

To accurately monitor ships, we create a Digital Twin. The Digital Twin is a digital replica of the ship , virtually representing it precisely the same as her real-life counterpart. This Digital Twin is fed with data of all  parameters that influence performance. To illustrate, we’ve listed a few of those parameters below.

Using these parameters, the instantaneous performance of the ship and each of its components is simulated and displayed. This performance is the achievable performance of the ship, when sailing in perfect technical condition, i.e. no fouling or technical issues. Fuel consumption and emissions are presented and can be benchmarked with actual on-board measurements or noon-reported data for precise and accurate insights. Any difference between the two are inefficiencies, such as hull-fouling, or incorrect reporting. Using this data, the performance manager can take informed decisions on the need for maintenance, or correct reporting issues.

Of course, all of this data is displayed in a useful and practical manner. This means that the remote monitoring of ships provides previously unheard of opportunities for more efficient planning and active performance monitoring.

Who will benefit from our performance monitoring solution?

Increased performance offers benefits to all parties within the maritime industry. Our solution aims at the following types of companies:
