The innovative analysis is called the CASPER© (Computerized Analysis of Ship Performance). The benefits of this new method of analysis were radical and dramatic for the first ship owners who signed up for the CASPER program in 2003. Ships enrolled in the CASPER program significantly improved fuel efficiency within the first year. Today, our first containership customer is still with us with the entire fleet of 70 ships in our program, attaining continuous improvement of vessel efficiency and reduction of bunker consumption.
Propulsion Dynamics helped foster a global awareness of the importance of hull and propeller resistance as a Key Performance Indicator in fuel conservation and emission reduction programs. The term 'Hull and Propeller Performance Monitoring" is now one of the key measures to reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions in the (IMO) Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan as well as Interanko's TEMP.
