Carnival Corporation completes fleetwide software rollout

Carnival Corporation completes fleetwide rollout of new software

Shipping company Carnival Corporation & plc has completed the fleetwide rollout of LR OneOcean’s EnviroManager+ software.

The software is a comprehensive and data-rich implementation of the LR OneOcean platform to date, setting a new standard for maritime journey and environmental planning, the company reported.

The system aims to deliver efficiencies in passage planning and support voyage compliance excellence with all relevant international, regional, national, and local environmental regulations.

The EnviroManager+ system was jointly developed by Carnival Corporation and LR OneOcean during an intensive five-year collaboration involving senior maritime officials, shipboard crew members, company and industry environmental experts, regulatory compliance leaders, and technology innovators.

“Together the team created the most encompassing, data-intensive adaptation of the LR OneOcean platform to date designed to give shipboard crews improved, automated, and intuitive tools to support passage and environmental planning, as well as enable enhanced environmental requirement monitoring during voyages,” the company said in a statement.

EnviroManager+ reportedly visualises the precise boundaries of over 500 environmentally regulated zones worldwide via an intuitive, user-friendly interface.

This data is overlaid with the many more restrictive, industry and Carnival Corporation-specific environmental policies to represent a complete view of the full scope of all environmental rules and regulations, regardless of governing body or jurisdiction.

Updates to all policies and regulations are routinely and automatically shared with the fleet via a shore-to-ship data service within the LR OneOcean digital platform, which also automatically sends approved passage plans ashore for easy access to shoreside personnel.

According to the company, the application accelerates and simplifies voyage planning by arming ships’ officers with easy-to-use digital planning tools, including automatic route generation capabilities, to plan voyages and environmental operations.

It also automatically validates the accuracy and permissibility of planned operations and navigational routes, delivering actionable intelligence to assist decision-making, reduce risk, and ensure continuous compliance throughout every voyage.

Meanwhile, both shoreside and onboard personnel have access to regulatory information that can be monitored in real-time against each vessel’s position, speed, and planned route, reported Carnival Corporation.

John Haeflinger, Senior VP, Sustainability and Maritime Policy at Carnival Corporation, said: “Complying with environmental regulations is a top priority, and it is a real challenge for the cruise industry, as regulations and requirements constantly evolve and become more complex.

“As an industry leader proactively engaged in marine stewardship, we need to be confident that our operations meet all environmental requirements, including our own policies, which are often more restrictive.

“Given our longstanding engagement and collaboration on this project, LR OneOcean EnviroManager+ now gives us that confidence. I am convinced that the LR OneOcean product suite is the most comprehensive and complete maritime environmental regulatory database on the market today that is integrated with an automated passage plan solution for oceangoing vessels.

“I invite all other oceangoing ship operators committed to environmental compliance to consider giving it a try, because together we can build on the software’s capabilities for the greater good.”

Last summer, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) selected IBS Software, a SaaS solutions provider, to reform its air freight operations.

Just last month, Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) approved Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI)’s Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) management software ‘SVESSEL CBM’.
