Andrie Inc. Implements FuelTrax

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Nautical Control Solutions announced that Andrie Inc. of Muskegon, Michigan is implementing their FuelTrax marine fuel management system on M/V Karen Andrie, a 120 ft tug.

“We are always looking for tools and practices that improve efficiency,” said Stan Andrie, President, Andrie Inc. “However, it can be a challenge measuring improvement on a day-to-day basis when our focus is on running the business. FuelTrax will provide us a way to establish an operational baseline and then identify areas where improvements can be made. It will automatically capture data such as throttle and engine RPM settings, fuel burn rates, and vessel location and present the data in reports so we can create a baseline. We gain visibility into exactly how we are using fuel and where we can improve operations to reduce fuel consumption.”

Repowered in 2009, Karen Andrie is a 516 gross ton, 3,600 hp tug recently upgraded with a JAK coupling system to push a 360 foot oil barge. FuelTrax will monitor her two main engines which are EMD 8-710’s. FuelTrax will also be monitoring fuel usage on her two John Deere 8.1 L Power Tech 6081 OEM Diesel engines with 135 kW Spectrum Detroit Diesel generators.
