Energy Efficiency (EEOI, MRV, SEEMP)

DANAOS 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)

seempThe 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.

Maritime KPIs

Danaos maritime KPIsThe integrated approach of all the functions of a ship management company in one integrated system provides the appropriate infrastructure to support maritime specific KPI’s setup and monitoring.

The new DANAOS WEB ENTERPRISE EDITION has this functionality as built-in. A mechanism to enrich the maritime KPI’s library is available. KPI’s definitions and their arguments are user defined and may be published easily to the system. A framework of utilities is offered to cover the publishing procedure. Members of IT departments or even users can create, compile and test different KPI’s without risking the integrity of the system.

Maritime KPIsKPI’s monitoring mechanism provides the appropriate feedback either to a specific department e.g. operational, technical, crewing etc. or to the management. Feedback gives to operators, superintended engineers and other a clear objective picture of their performance, allow them to identify gaps and plan future improvements. Results of KPI’s scoring may be used also for demonstrating performance to 3rd parties and/or business partners.

Key performance indicators must be quantifiable

  1. If a Key Performance Indicator is going to be of any value, there must be a way to accurately define and measure it.
  2. It must be based on the corporate information
  3. Corporate information must be collected in a quality manner
  4. It must offer drill down functionality to isolate causes
  5. It is also important to define the Key Performance Indicators and stay with the same definition from year to year.
  6. You also need to set targets for each Key Performance Indicator.

User defined KPI’s

  1. Key Performance indicators active at the framework of DANAOS WEB ENTERPRISE SUITE
  2. Your companies can add, modify or delete the current KPIs
  3. Corporate KPIs will alert users and the system will record corrective actions
  4. User KPIs will guide users to focus on the areas requiring immediate attention. Drill down functionality

WAVES® is a maritime Fleet Performance System and maritime data analytics platform that aggregates and analyses data being gathered from multiple sources with the ulterior view to create a true competitive advantage in ships management.

 WAVES is fully integrated with all other DANAOS WEB ENTERPRISE SUITE software modules, providing personalized role-specific dashboards and maritime business operational intelligence.


WAVES Maritime Fleet PerformanceComplete movements reporting with charter party over/under performance evaluation. Voyage financial reports and post voyage analysis. Integrates with WAVES® Fleet Performance, maritime monitoring system to benchmark actual vessel performance in terms of speed, fuel, time, lubes, etc. Fully integrated with stowage planning and trim optimization.
Either in a strictly-defined structure, like operational, crew and financial data, or in a more loose one, like online sensor data streams (e.g. LAROS, MARORKA) and excel forms (e.g. fuel analysis, International Security Management etc), WAVES algorithms and visualization tools transform data into useful information assisting maritime professionals with the decision-making process, uncovering new insights and optimizing operations.
