VESPER by Vessel Performance Solutions

Improve your fleet’s operational efficiency through data analysis.

VESPER enables operation of your fleet in environmental compliance, optimizing yield on operation and increasing earnings on chartering.

Monitoring excess fuel consumption.

VESPER features include efficient monitoring of large fleets with drill down capabilities to individual vessels both long term and short term. The software application establishes a framework for continuous fleet optimization with individual performance indicators that are merged into one single fleet performance indicator, thus enabling the entire organization to follow optimization progress at an overall level as well as full drill-down capabilities to individual segments or individual vessels.

One example output is the ability of shipowners and charterers to predict the performance and fuel oil consumption so precisely that vessels can be chartered out on more accurate terms. This may enable an increase in profit margins of up to 10%.

VESPER provides deep insights in hull, propeller, main engine, baseload and boiler performance and data quality. The advanced data validation module provides instant feedback and longer term statistics on error percentages of data received from the vessels.

Environmental reporting and compliance.

For Vessel Performance Solutions it is key to be able to deliver environmental data following the newest legislation.

VESPER can presently automatically produce reporting fulfilling IMO DCS, EU MRV, and EEOI.

The information can be forwarded to the verifiers by API, leaving the verifiers to pull the required reports.

The owner can also forward the reports. That gives the option to review the reports before forwarding.

VESPER are being updated to the be able to deliver decision making information to the newest IMO and EU environmental legislation.

Crew Feedback Module

Improving vessels performance is a job for both office and crew. Thus, it is important that both parties can work with and understand the information provided about the vessel’s performance. VESPER has a Crew Feedback Module based on the same information available for the office. The information is presented in a relevant way for the crew, enabling them to act fast and independently on the findings.

In the Crew Feedback Module is as well comparison opportunities with the peer vessels, creating even more transparency in the work with the data.

Experience has shown that implementing the Crew Feedback Module makes the data quality significantly higher, which makes the vessel’s operational efficiency increase. Win-Win.

The Crew Feedback Module is web based and requires no installation of any equipment onboard.

This picture shows a part of the landing page for the crew feedback module. Here the crew can follow their vessel’s performance from in all aspects and compare it to the peer vessels.

VESPER Dashboards

Everything is a matter of priorities; thus, to find the most important problems first, an overview is needed. In this overview the vessels added resistance since last drydock. The ones with the most resistance and shortest time since last drydock is the most important ones to study.

In this overview the excess fuel oil consumption related to the main engine performance. The main engine is the largest consumer, and discrepancies can make a major difference in the overall expected fuel oil consumption for a voyage.

In this overview you can see the ongoing voyages. You can see the planned routes; weather routing and you can see whether vessels are fulfilling charterparty terms. Red lines marks vessels not in charter party compliance.

In this picture you get an overview of the data quality of your fleet on vessel level. You can as well see what rules are mainly violated. This is important to know before deciding actions on findings, as the input of data influences on the results.

Benefits with VESPER

  • Optimize operational efficiency

    VESPER enables you to optimize your fleet’s operational efficiency by:

    Monitoring the excess fuel oil consumption from:

    • added hull and propeller resistance,
    • main engine
    • auxiliaries and boilers


    and act in due time and with efficient means when non-compliances are nearing.

  • Data quality

    To make high quality decisions you need to know the data quality. There are two important factors working with data quality. 

    • You need a strong data quality tool.
    • ability of being able to work with the data both onshore and onboard in dedicated applications.


    VESPER has both.

  • Accuracy and predictability

    VESPER’s features enable you to predict the performance and fuel oil consumption so precise that you can charter your vessels out on more accurate terms, typically higher speed or lower consumption, whatever is most valuable in the market, and earn more money on chartering.

    The accuracy means as well that for vessels on charter or in pools you can optimize pool points, or communicate early that the speed and consumption terms are coming close and deal with it in due time, increasing customer satisfaction.

After participating in the pre-project and development project, we are very pleased with the tool we have now received. Blue Power EMS is the company's energy efficiency tool and after it has been used on 3 of the company's ships, we can document a significant reduction in FO consumption. In several of the vessels' operations, we see a reduction of more than 15%!
