Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) API

The following Product Terms apply to the Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution. 

For the avoidance of doubt, Supplier means ZeroNorth A/S.

Customer shall have a valid subscription to the Solutions Fuel Models to use this Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution.

Description of the Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution

Supplier's Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution enables Customer to query fuel consumption estimates for specific voyages through Supplier's fuel models using simple voyage parameters provided by Customer through Veson Nautical LLC's ("Veson") IMOS VIP Chartering Module as input (origin port, destination port, vessel IMO number, speed). The Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution will, based on the provided input, return fuel consumption estimates, enabling Customer to evaluate the costs associated with the voyage in question.


The Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution offers Customer access to fuel consumption estimates provided by Supplier's fuel models, without requiring Customer to onboard vessels onto Supplier's platform and alter its existing workflows, by integrating with Veson's voyage management systems.

 

Using the "Webhook functionality" in the IMOS VIP Chartering Module, Customer sends a query to the Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution using the above input. The Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution then calculates a simple route from the origin port to the destination port and returns the estimated fuel consumption at the speed defined by Customer.

 

On this basis, Customer can now compare the estimated fuel consumption provided by Supplier against Customer's existing consumption estimates in the IMOS VIP Chartering Module, and - depending on the functionality in the IMOS VIP Chartering Module - decide whether to overwrite the existing values and reassess the profitability of the voyage under consideration.

 

Technical requirements

Customer must have an active account on and subscription to the IMOS VIP Chartering Module offered and provided by Veson. Further, Customer must configure the Webhook functionality in the IMOS VIP Chartering Module to query the Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution.

 

Data

Supplier requires the following data (provided through the Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution) from Customer each time Customer makes a query for a fuel consumption estimate in the Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution:

 

·       Loading and discharge port

·       Vessel IMO number

·       Freight rate

·       Fuel consumption estimates (full speed + eco speed) - typically provided by ship owner or manually input based on historical performance of the vessel

·       Weather factor (fixed factor determined by Customer that consumption estimates are multiplied by to account for excess consumption due to expected weather conditions)

·       Bunker cost.

 

If any additional data is required for the Solution, Supplier will inform Customer.

 

Third party software or data

The Advanced Consumption and Emissions (ACE) Solution accesses various data sources to provide Customer with the functionalities set out in these Product Terms.

 

Special conditions
