Telegrams Report

TelegramThe function of inputting the daily telegrams form the vessel to the system can be outsourced to Danaos, where our data centre receive these telegrams from the client’s vessel and remotely update the system within a specified time frame, allowing the client to view updated vessel positions and consumption at any point in time.

Vessel Scheduling

vessel schedulingThe specific module monitors, manages and administers all tasks and procedural activities involved in the operations of bulkers, tankers, containers/liners and LNG/LPG. General dashboard (see above) provides consolidated information in terms of all operations and crucial alerts, providing an overall situation awareness. Plan voyage based on C/P and voyage order is taking into consideration original chartering estimations, derived during fleet scheduling.

Generates reports or shows alerts that assist the operations department to manage ‘by exception’ the voyage. Real time post analysis reports.

mrv-screenshot2DANAOS SEEMP module encompasses the full spectrum of IMO regulations and guidelines regarding ship efficiency. SEEMP module enables the management to identify the root causes of operational deficiencies and achieve above the competition performance level for each vessel type.

Energy Efficiency Module is a performance monitoring tool in terms in technical, financial & statutory (EEOI, MRV, etc.) terms.

The maritime Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) was made mandatory for new ships and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all ships at MEPC 62 (July 2011) with the adoption of amendments to MARPOL Annex VI (resolution MEPC.203(62)), by Parties to MARPOL Annex VI. This was the first legally binding climate change treaty to be adopted since the Kyoto Protocol.

Fleet performance and environmental impact are benchmarked against the optimal level, allowing the shipping company to monitor, improve and report the results in a standardized format. Environmental impact & Fuel consumption are the key concepts behind DANAOS SEEMP module

Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)

The EEDI for new ships is the most important technical measure and aims at promoting the use of more energy efficient (less polluting) equipment and engines. The EEDI requires a minimum energy efficiency level per capacity mile (e.g. tonne mile) for different ship type and size segments. Since 1 January 2013, following an initial two year phase zero, new ship design needs to meet the reference level for their ship type. The level is to be tightened incrementally every five years, and so the EEDI is expected to stimulate continued innovation and technical development of all the components influencing the fuel efficiency of a ship from its design phase.

SEEMP should not play the role of another “paper form” instead, it should be utilized as a valuable toolkit for achieving ship energy optimization, enabling for improved and efficient vessel performance both in terms of fuel consumption and environmental protection.

Bunkering Management System

Bunkering Management System

Bunkering Management Module monitors bunkering events and specially designed to provide continuous on line information for any company involved in the bunkers supply business, including oil companies, bunkers suppliers, brokers, intermediates, etc. The system automates invoicing & information system can update accounting files. Apart from the follow-up of the client’s payment status, the company exposure and telex and official invoices, on-line information concerning the status of bunkers deliveries, past or future payments and customer’s/ supplier’s exposure, is also available. The above information can be obtained by stem, supplier, broker, etc. Thus the Bunkering System automates the bunkers supply process, providing complete information at any stage of the cycle in order to support accurate and fast decision making.

Laytime/Demurrage Calculator

DemurrageDanaos Laytime module is integrated with the timesheet of the loading/discharging activity which comes from the vessel directly. It has been designed to assist users with laytime/demurrage/despatch calculations. It caters for all modern charter party clauses regarding commencement and cessation of laytime, thus allowing users to establish the demurrage /dispatch due seamlessly in various scenarios. Depending on the terms and consequently the parameters inserted in the program, the system assesses laytime generating a detailed Statement of Facts mentioning all relevant data essential for the calculation.
Laytime calculation is one of the most laborious, objectionable and time-consuming tasks in the shipping business; however, if done accurately, it can save a lot of money.
With DANAOS powerful but user-friendly Laytime and Demurrage Calculation software, you need only minutes instead of hours for error-free calculation. That means you save time and effort as well as money.

  • Easy-to-use calculation system for laytime and demurrage/despatch calculation. Based on the statement of facts the program generates a complete time sheet with automatic detection of day breaks, the time the vessel comes on demurrage and the changes in calculation thereafter
  • Need to make a change in a laytime calculation? Just load the calculation, modify the figure to be changed and get a complete re-calculated statement with a few keystrokes

The program supports all usual contract clauses for the laytime calculation including: Reversible / Non reversible / Average / Working time saved / All time saved once on demurrage, always on demurrage / Not always on demurrage Mixed reversible / non reversible
All usual laytime calculation terms already predefined: full time counting, half time to count, time not to count, rain, shifting time not to count and a free percentage value for partial counting in case of breakdowns etc. Working periods during weekends and non-counting periods on demurrage also supported
All usual SHex terms already predefined and user customizable. Non-standard regulations can be specified by begin/end day of week and time

  • Features and Functionalities

  • Reversible (All Ports, Loading, Discharge, Loading/Discharge)
  • Non Reversible and Averaged Calculations.
  • Integrated with Operations (C/P Clauses, Timesheets)
  • Integrated with Freight & Hire Collection
