We are developing a complete understanding of energy flows around a vessel. We are also providing a detailed equipment architecture review. These are fundamental to enable whole vessel energy efficiency savings.

The resulting system will provide end-users with:

  • a detailed understanding of vessel energy architecture
  • a sensor-based physical monitoring system
  • software for querying data generated by the system to drive Key Performance Indicators

The system will offer a consultative approach to new products or services which can aid efficiency.
