For the world’s leading owner and operator of LPG vessels, BW LPG, data analysis and performance data is helping them achieve their goal to be part of the solution to today’s environmental challenges, while ensuring voyage efficiency and customer satisfaction.

“For BW LPG, the CASPER Operations platform forms part of our performance monitoring analysis toolbox, allowing us to optimize fuel costs and reduce consumption, benefitting both commercial and environmental aspects for owned and chartered ships,” explains Kevin Knott, Senior Manager, Fleet Performance, BW LPG.

In 2015 BW LPG implemented the performance analysis tool CASPER Service. Three years later BW LPG began using the CASPER Operations platform – an enhanced and fully automated platform that adds a new layer of transparency to daily performance analysis and ensures easier detection of deviations to the expected performance of the vessel. This year, BW LPG renewed
their contract for the new CASPER Operations platform.

“CASPER was primarily introduced to allow us to monitor and determine the amount of hull and propeller resistance of our vessels and thus the corresponding consumption at a given draft, weather and speed,” says Knott. “The various BW business units were very much involved in the development of the new CASPER Operations platform and we saw the additional benefits in continuing to use it.”
