Unique System FZE, a Unique Maritime Group company and an integrated turnkey subsea and offshore solution providers, was contracted by ADNATCO-NGSCO to deliver ship performance monitoring solutions that will help to optimize vessel performance and subsequently aim to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The entire project will be carried out by Unique System FZE, acting as agents for the Iceland based energy management company Marorka ehf. Commissioning and technical support will be provided by UniqueMarorka Support Services which is a joint venture set up by Marorka ehf and Unique System FZE.

National Gas Shipping Company (NGSCO), an ADNOC Group Company, was formed in December 1993 to transport liquefied natural gas (LNG) on behalf of Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (ADGAS). In 2009, the company’s supporting services were merged with ADNATCO under a single management umbrella. The merger boosted both companies’ positions and created a pool of versatile and experienced manpower in the lead up to the expansion stage under the auspices of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company(ADNOC).

Marorka is a provider of energy management solutions for the international shipping industry. Marorka products and services enable vessel operators to optimize fuel consumption by maximizing the energy efficiency of their vessel or fleet. The results are minimized harmful emissions and reduced costs.

The project’s objective is to implement energy management systems for ADNATCO-NGSCO’s entire fleet.The first stage of the project includes the installation of ship performance monitoring systems onboard ADNATCO’s six vessels: two LNG vessels, two bulk carriers and two oil tankers. The principal objective will be to improve the vessel’s performance and to eliminate environmental concerns such as excessive fuel consumption and carbon emission in the long term. Marorka’s Onboard Energy Management System and Marorka Online, a fleet reporting tool, have been selected for this purpose. The system gathers data from the required instrumentation points and presents the overall efficiency of the vessel in a user-friendly interface. The main advantage of this system is its ability to provide real-time information from each vessel in fleet, thereby facilitating informed decisions related to energy efficiency.
