Eco Marine Power (EMP) to use the KEI 3240 Data Logger to verify fuel savings & measure the performance of its Aquarius MRE System.

The Aquarius MRE System is a wind & solar power solution for sustainable shipping, and the data logger is to be supplied by KEI System Ltd (KEI) of Osaka, Japan.

The use of the KEI 3240 Data Logger will provide a ship's crew with real time information regarding how much fuel consumption is being reduced through the use of Aquarius MRE System. This and other data can also be recorded and analysed later.

'Saying a particular technology can save fuel is one thing, proving it actually achieves the savings claimed is another and the KEI 3240 Data Logger gives us the means to verify the performance of our technologies" said Greg Atkinson, Director of R&D at Eco Marine Power. "We will also work with KEI to develop a power rating methodology for our EnergySail and use the KEI 3240 Data Logger as a means to fine tune the performance of the EnergySail during sea trials which will commence during 2013."

Eco Marine Power Co. Ltd. is an internationally focused technology company based in Fukuoka, Japan, that designs eco-friendly solar, wind, electric and hybrid marine power and propulsion solutions. They also develop sustainable ship concepts that incorporate the latest renewable energy technologies and are currently working on a number of design projects including the Aquarius MRE System, Aquarius Eco Ship, Aquarius USV, Tonbo solar hybrid ferry and Medaka eco-commuter ferry.
