Fujitsu and Kongsberg Digital have collaborated to tackle GHG emissions, using an AI Fuel Optimization Service. Namely, the new digital web service will allow shipping companies to reduce fuel costs for large ships and comply with new low sulphur fuel regulations, without needing complex ship re-engineering or major expenditure by ship owners and operators.
SAFETY4SEA is pleased to announce that d’Amico Group has received the 2019 SMART4SEA Energy Efficiency Award, sponsored by Hudson Analytix, at a prestigious award ceremony which successfully concluded on January the 29th at Yacht Club of Greece in Athens, the evening ahead of the 2019 SMART4SEA Conference.
Nordic Tankers, Dania Ship Management and Danfoss IXA are collaborating to test new technology for monitoring emissions. Namely, a sensor equipment aspires to help ship owners prove compliance with the IMO’s requirements for sulphur emissions.
Mr. Johan Backas, Managing Director at Eniram, a Wärtsilä Company mentions that the shipping industry has successfully adapted to technology evolution, highlighting that smart technology is the key in enabling and unlocking the fleet’s efficiency potential. However, the challenge for all industry stakeholders is to become ‘more open’.
Digital solutions and data sharing are likely the key to better enforcement of the 2020 sulphur limit: Working under EfficienSea2, Danish company Litehauz has developed a solution for ships, similar to ”black box” on airplanes, able to transmit sulphur emissions data to the ships’ owner as well as relevant authorities on land.
