Germanischer Lloyd’s subsidiary FutureShip has announced a co-operation agreement with Iceland-based Marorka, integrating their product portfolios in the field of fuel efficiency, energy management and related consulting.
FutureShip’s ECO-Assistant software application delivers the optimum trim angle for a specific ship when provided with a few simple operational parameters. The tool regularly achieves efficiency improvements of up to 5 percent. FutureShip also offers technical and management support from conceptual design to ship operations with special focus on energy efficiency.
Alongside its own solutions, FutureShip will now offer selected Marorka hardware and software products. The stand-alone Ship Performance Monitoring System calculates fuel efficiency based on fuel consumption, GPS and log speed, propeller power and main engine RPM. It displays performance values and trends on a touch panel computer, which collects measurement data, creates real time performance analyses, and records historical performance data that can also be sent to shore for further analysis with Marorka Online.
As an advanced alternative to basic performance monitoring, the Marorka Maren Operating Platform (OP3) will be offered. This product can be connected to all of the relevant onboard systems for extensive data collection from propulsion, navigation, machinery, and cargo systems as well as weather and oceanic forecasts. Modular expansions based on and connected to OP3, such as propulsion performance optimisation, simulation of voyage schedules and costs, monitoring of power and steam production efficiency, are also available. Additionally, an automated interface to FutureShip’s ECO-Assistant can now be ordered.
