Eniram: Improving energy efficiency through digitalization

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’.

d’Amico: Raising the bar for a more sustainable future

Mr. Salvatore d’Amico, Fleet Director of d’Amico Group, notes that there is still a large gap in the required standards on board dry cargo ships compared to oil tankers. Therefore, operators need to go beyond compliance with industry’s standards regardless the type of vessel and at the same the shipping industry itself needs to raise the bar.

GIA meets to discuss uptake of alternative fuels

As part of IMO’s strategy to reduce GHG emissions from ships, a meeting of the IMO Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (GIA) Task Force took place at IMO Headquarters in London, on 27 November, holding a lively debate on the marine fuel for the future.

Eco-project focuses on protecting Baltic Sea through digitalization

ECOPRODIGY addresses both the environmental and economic challenges posed by increasing eco-efficiency at all stages of the vessel lifecycle from design and building to the use, maintenance, stowage as well as conversion processes. DFDS was the most recent addition to the project.

GloMEEP emphasizes on fuel consumption data collection

The GloMEEP project delivered a training course to help maritime administrations and classification societies in collecting fuel consumption data from ships. The training took place in China, on 14 of November. Fuel consumption data from ships provide crucial information to support IMO’s  efforts to reduce GHG emissions from international shipping.

EU signs new rules to achieve greater energy efficiency

The European Parliament signed new rules on renewables, energy efficiency and the governance of the Energy Union. This enables the European Union to move towards clean energy transition, and follow on the already adopted 2030 climate legislation, as well as meet the Paris Agreement goals.

Smart data drives energy transition: Opportunities & challenges

support by smart data is said to totally transform power systems in the near future.  Besides, by 2050, the world’s primary energy mix is expected to be split equally between fossil and non-fossil sources. However, which are the challenges and opportunities that data and IT systems are bringing to the energy era?

IMO focuses on technologies to reduce GHG from ships

Experts from the five Maritime Technology Cooperation Centres in the GMN network met for their second annual meeting, on 22-26 October, in London, UK, to promote ship energy-efficiency measures and technology transfer, under the GMN project, funded by the European Union and run by IMO.

IoT opportunities in the smart shipping era

Recent research conducted by the 2018 SAFETY4SEA Technology Award winner, Inmarsat, finds maritime industry more amenable to adopting analytic, management and operational tools applied through IoT than many commentators have supposed. But how IoT-based solutions can offer the industry a way of solving problems in response to rising future challenges?

How small investment can power smarter options

Digitalization is rapidly transforming the business of international shipping. Efforts to enhance ship efficiency and sharpen commercial focus on fleet performance and profitability are being buoyed by the use of smart technology and the application of big data, argues Beat Guettinger, Head of Tekomar for ABB Turbocharging.
