This study designed a ship energy efficiency monitoring system based on a ship application system that provides maritime services by utilizing data collected onboard, and a ship-land integration system for integrated management and exchange of maritime data. The ship energy efficiency monitoring system was developed as a Windows application program and designed to use file based EDI communications. Its main functions include route planning to minimize fuel consumption, monitoring of energy consumption and gas emissions, analysis of ship energy efficiency and other data analysis. The system has been successfully implemented in actual ships.
