Data mining in the maritime industry will have a positive impact on the safety and quality of service for customers, give a competitive advantage for the shipowners and bring new knowledge and added value to managers of the shipping company.
The availability of digitized data and the methodology for processing them for maintenance prediction helps in making more efficient decisions, monitoring assets, and making optimal use of both an individual vessel and the entire fleet.
Onboard and shipboard sensors are already being used to measure various aspects of a ship’s performance, such as fuel consumption, engine torque, RPM, and power, as well as temperature, pressure, electrical load, ship speed, and a host of other parameters.
At the same time, an unprecedented amount of data on ships and engines, not to mention the weather, sea state, and other external factors, is generated from different sources and in different formats.
In fact, it has been estimated that a modern ship generates over 20 gigabytes of onboard data every day.
