Marubeni is participating in the Blue Visby Consortium, to use an integrated system that notifies ships of the optimal date and time for arriving at their destination.
he solution uses digital technology developed by NAPA Oy, to optimize the arrival time of oceangoing vessels and reduce the speed and CO₂ emissions of those vessels.
According to various stage of proof-of-concept research, including an analysis of 150,000 voyages by 13,000 freighters worldwide in 2019, using the Solution would enable a reduction of cruising speed and standby time in 87% of voyages.
With this Solution, vessel operators will be given an optimal arrival time, so that they can then successfully adjust the vessel’s cruising speed and reduce fuel consumption by using the most efficient route and speed to reach the vessel’s destination, with a potential average CO₂ emissions reduction of 16%.
Marubeni will support the demonstration and implementation of this Solution using its fleet of gas and chemical tankers throughout its chemical trading network with the aim of implementing low-carbon transportation of chemical products
said the company.
