Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Eniram Limited, the fast-growing Finnish provider of energy management solutions and data analytic services to the shipping industry, is bringing to this premier global Cruise industry event two innovative fuel-saving solutions based on the established Eniram vessel platform. “OSA integrated with weather forecasting features is already revolutionizing vessel speed optimization” said Philip Padfield, CEO of Eniram. “We are also launching ELA, the newest addition to Eniram’s vessel performance management applications, and the first system capable of delivering real-time engine load optimization guidance.”
These new performance monitoring tools have been designed and developed in conjunction with some of Eniram’s existing cruise line customers and address the industry’s need to optimize voyage speed profiles while maximizing fuel efficiency to meet demanding cruise itineraries. At a time when bunker prices and commitment to reduce carbon footprints are rising, the leading cruise operators are committed to the development and adoption of technology to improve marine energy efficiency. Eniram is trialling the speed and engine load applications with several leading cruise customers, and recording some excellent fuel saving results.
Eniram’s New Offerings:
-Eniram Optimum Speed Assistant (OSA) combined with weather forecasting helps vessel operators and shore side managers to effectively implement, manage and sustain an optimized speed profile on a single vessel or across a fleet taking account of factors such as ECA zones, weather conditions and fuel price differences.
-Eniram Engine Load Assistant (ELA) helps ship operators to monitor fuel consumption in relation to how hard each engine is working. This helps determine the optimum engine combination (e.g. running full power, or switching one off) to match the required loads while maximizing fuel efficiency for the prevailing conditions including weather, currents and journey time.
The two modules together offer the most optimal route, speed profile and engine configuration for any given voyage using model algorithms and up-to-date weather and sea current forecasts for efficient voyage planning. Cruise companies benefit from reduced fuel consumption and emissions in everyday operations.
Located at Booth #2183 in the Miami Convention Centre, Eniram’s nautical and technical experts will be available to give product demonstrations and answer questions. Eniram’s traditional products covering dynamic trimming and hull and propulsion optimization will also be featured.
Green Cruising Showcase
For the first time, CSM is featuring a Show Case dedicated to Green Cruising. Visa Roine, Nautical Consultant and Director of Eniram is presenting “Reducing the fuel bill (and the equipment maintenance costs) with speed and engine load optimization”. This short seminar will take place in the Green Cruising Pavilion at 14.00 on Wednesday, March 13th.
