The Energy Efficiency application provides insight into your vessel performance and total control over fleet operations. This includes a complete report of every activity, vessel utilization, fuel efficiency, and tools to optimize it. The reasoning behind the application is to make data easily available to allow people to make an informed decision: you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Measure the important metrics, reward people by met and exceeded performance.
- Manage operational and fuel performance of your entire fleet.
- Compare vessels and voyages and set targets for fuel efficiency.
- Meet environmental control and regulations requirements.
- Share detailed vessels reports with your partners.
- Provide and receive feedback from the crew using the bridge display.
- Interface directly with data from your engines or any type of flowmeter, following a quick and easy install.
Plug and play
The Energy Efficiency application interfaces directly with the engines or any type of add-on fuel measurement sensor such as Coriolis, ultrasonic or positive displacement flow sensors. The Onboard team can give advice for a suitable selection and provide support with the correct interfacing. Additional sensors or systems data on board are easily added. Installation takes no more than half a day.
The crew on the bridge can log the vessels voyages and activities by means of a touch interface. Equipment usage and remarks can be added to every activity. Fuel consumption profile set by fleet management, average activity fuel consumption, and the calculated fuel efficiency of the current shift are displayed. The crew automatically receives their voyage schedules and have access to their log of past voyages and activities. Access to the application is controlled by the fleet manager who handles user accounts of all crew members from shore.
Communication with colleagues and partners on shore becomes easier, as much of the paperwork on board becomes automated. Clients have direct access to the information on their operations. This clear view on data fosters a better understanding of costs and leads to better collaboration with supply partners.
Reduced fuel consumption
Fuel consumption remains a sizable portion of a ship’s operating costs. With the Onboard energy efficiency application, the use of fuel can be quantified and optimized by monitoring several aspects of a vessel’s journey. Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions are calculated per activity and can be benchmarked, per ship, per shift, group of vessels and for the whole fleet. Our first customers, reduced fuel consumption by 16% in the first quarter of using the application. That’s more money back in our customers’ pockets.
With additional insight into your operations, the Onboard Energy Efficiency application provides a good foundation for identifying inefficiencies. It enables you to start exploring your processes and find non-value adding activities that can be reduced or eliminated from the process, therefore improving the utilization of your assets and overall performance of your business. More information, more power to you.
