Energy Efficiency SYSTEM (EES)

It is known that by 2015, the sulfur  content in fuels in SOx Emission Control Areas (SECA) is to be reduced from 1,5% to 0,1% (by almost 90%). The SECA are the Northern and Baltic seas, the English Channel, the waters adjacent to the west and east coasts of North America and to the Caribbean islands.

Pursuant to Annex VI, MARPOL (Regulation 13 – Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) the Baltic sea area is considered as the NOx Emission Control Area (NCEA).

One of the principal key measures to implement Convention-compliant requirements is to procure modern grades of marine fuel which in turn allows significantly increasing operating costs of the fleet. Due to this fact the ship owners are mainly focused on fuel consumption management and looking for optimum ways of using the ship’s fuel bunker.

Since 2014 Info Marine Sp. z o.o. has been engaged in development, installation and servicing of fuel consumption management systems.

Features and benefits

  • Four simultaneous data signals from ME: torque, power, speed, direction of rotation indicate by torsional instrument.
  • Consumption of fuels from all equipment on board
  • The possibility of finding the optimum ME speed versus spent fuel – save fuel
  • Planning a voyage and selecting ship’s speed according to GPS data and fuel consumption
  • The possibility of planning fuel bunkering according to real consumption of all machinery
  • Monitoring NOx and COx emissions versus fuel consumption, processing and transmitting the data to the office (optional)
  • Possibility of updating and improving the system
  • All information collected and presented in a clear graphical form – user-friendly interface.
  • All data stored in memory – possibility of generated report for management.

Saving Fuels

For many companies, the result of success in an increasing fuel requirement. Fuel consumption dominates operating costs.
For example, a reduction of fuel consumption is easily achieved by reducing speed. The Table show the potential for fuel saving clearly. Ship owners control the engine load to set the most efficient speed.

Speed reductionFuel saving

For container ships of 4,500 TEU and above, reducing speed by 1 knot reduces propulsion fuel consumption by 12 to 15 percent. For oil tankers, reducing speed by 1 knot reduces fuel consumption by 17 to 22 percent.
