Danish offshore shipping company Maersk Supply Service (MSS) has signed a contract with Eniram, a Wärtsilä company, to install an Energy Advisory System on its vessels. The system will use high quality data in order to optimise operations and in the meantime save fuel.
Specifically, the system will contribute to reducing the company’s carbon footprint and fuel costs for the customers.
The system will be carried out on two Maersk Supply Service’s vessels: one M-class Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel (AHTS) and one I-class Subsea Support Vessel (SSV).
After initial testing, the company has planned to use the Energy Advisory System to four additional vessels, based on its long-term goal of installation across the entire fleet.
In the meantime, the company announced that the Energy Advisory System is amongst its initiatives concerning its goal of 5% reduction in fuel consumption by 2020.
Chief Operating Officer, Claus Bachmann stated
As a responsible vessel operator with an obligation to our customers and the environment, energy efficiency is at the top of our agenda. We are excited to officially enter this partnership with Wärtsilä to begin the pilot of the Energy Advisory System. This advanced technology will enable us to be smarter and more agile in our fuel reduction efforts.
Cocnluding, the trial of the system is set to begin during summer 2019.
