Published Oct 28, 2020 6:57 PM by The Maritime Executive

Hoppe Marine offers with the Hoppe DATA BUTLER and the Hoppe DATA INSPECTOR two new ship-to-cloud data service solutions to support the maritime community in their efforts to increase efficiency and reduce emissions. 

With more than seventy years of experience in the field of power, tank content and draught measurement systems, Hoppe Marine has earned a reputation as a reliable partner for the procurement of accurate ship operation data. Increased demands on shipping companies and operators in the  areas of safety, compliance, planning and optimization have led Hoppe to recognize early on that comprehensive access to this data is essential as a basis for qualified decision making and, more importantly, that this data can be trusted. Klas Reimer, Team Manager R&D, comments: ”You can not look for some savings through optimization algorithms or new coatings if the primary parameters are faulty!"

Lothar Beinke, General Manager of Hoppe Marine adds: ”Poor data quality as a  basis for decision-making can mean additional annual costs for ship operation of US$ 300,000 and  more per year!” 

To counter this, Hoppe has developed two solutions that make ship data available to the customer  at any time and anywhere, the Hoppe DATA BUTLER and the Hoppe DATA INSPECTOR. 

The Hoppe DATA BUTLER serves the desired data at any time via a fully encrypted ship-to-cloud  data transfer for retrieval by ship owners, ship managers or data analysts.
