GreenSteam™, a technology company specialising in energy saving solutions for commercial vessels,
today announces that, after testing and comparing different solutions for dynamic trim optimization,
leading shipping and logistic company DFDS has chosen to install GreenSteam fuel saving solutions on
around 20 further vessels.
The vessels will be supplied with the on-board decision support solution, GreenSteam Optimizer that provides dynamic trim optimization. DFDS will also use the GreenSteam Manager solution for
performance monitoring of these vessels.
The relations between the vessel’s speed and energy requirements, and the ever changing internal and external conditions – like load, fuel flow, waves, wind and water depth – are analysed bysophisticated software with a specially developed mathematical model at its core. Trim and draft of the vessel are constantly optimized to give minimal propulsion resistance at all times.
The system guides the crew in real time through a touch screen console on the bridge. GreenSteam Optimizer is designed to react dynamically to changes in the ship’s condition and environment, making it possible to maximize fuel efficiency. Additionally, the vessel’s and each mariner’s performance can be monitored remotely from shore by the fleet operator via the online browser-based tool GreenSteam Manager.
Daniel J Jacobsen, CEO of GreenSteam said: “We are delighted that DFDS has chosen our solution. At GreenSteam we firmly believe that fuel efficiency can be improved by pioneering digital technologies, and help companies in their pursuit of cost efficiencies and a greener approach to business.”
GreenSteam™ has recently secured a $2million investment from Castrol innoVentures, the strategic innovation arm of the leading lubricant supplier, part of the BP Group, to reinforce and accelerate its growth, as well as further market penetration of their cutting edge systems.
