Specifically, the monitoring system enables the team of PLA to understand fuel consumption, engine efficiency, and CO2 emissions across their varied fleet of workboats, additional to improving the Authority's maintenance strategy
Chris Huxley-Reynard, engineering director, Reygar, stated that
By pulling all critical data streams from the vessel into a single portal, the PLA’s operations team will have the oversight and flexibility to make further improvements to how downtime is managed, as well as advise on how vessels can be more efficiently piloted to reduce unnecessary fuel burn and emissions.
In addition, Andy Osborne, marine engineering manager at PLA, commented that the new monitoring systems will enhance the performance and efficiency of their vessels and provide detailed information on why and where such issues occur.
In 2019, the Port of London Authority provided an £80,000 network of air pollution monitors to record the effect of emissions locally from cruise ships docking in Greenwich for summer 2019.
