VAF Instruments’ Award-Winning Ivy® System Independently Certified By Verifavia
The award-winning IVY® system has been designed to automatically monitor and report voyages, it significantly streamlines both the EU MRV and IMO DCS compliance processes for fleet managers, ship owners, and operators. In addition, it provides useful insights into the performance of a ship’s hull, its propeller, and engine, which ship owners can translate into savings on their vessel operations.
With inbuilt sensors and fuel oil flowmeters, the IVY® system conducts several cross-checks for advanced performance analysis, ensuring accurate fuel oil consumption data is obtained. Ships equipped with the full system will be able to achieve compliance with minimal manual action required.
Erik van Ballegooijen, R&D team coordinator and technical consultant for hydromechanics, VAF Instruments, commented:
“As a market leader in maritime measurement systems, we pride ourselves on providing solutions that enable the shipping industry to obtain actionable insights into a vessel’s propulsion performance. We’re proud to have been able to optimise IVY® to not only support ship owners and operators in complying with EU MRV and IMO DCS regulations, but also to enable the achievement of tangible fuel savings onboard, resulting in an overall reduction in operational expenditure.”
Over the years, VAF Instruments has developed advanced algorithms capable of automatically interpreting Big Data to create Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on which decisions for ship performance optimisation can be based. This Performance Management solution by IVY® – which is based on measuring the thrust of a ship’s propeller – includes the automatically performed enrichment of Big Data. [...]
