ABS's Energy & Environmental Manager module supports regulatory compliance and operational efficiency.
Classification society ABS release its new Energy & Environmental Manager module within NS5 Enterprise, the industry-leading asset management software suite. This module complements the ABS portfolio of services that helps owners and operators meet the environmental and operational demands faced by the maritime industry.
Energy efficiency, emission controls and ballast water management regulations are impacting the amount of information an owner or operator is required to capture in its day-to-day operations. At the same time, rising fuel costs and anticipated environmental requirements are forcing owners and operators to find ways to improve efficiencies.
The value of the new module is enhanced by the Trim Optimization tool, which adds trim and draft optimization for improved fuel savings. It performs multiple analyses to obtain the most optimized ballast configuration to achieve minimum hull resistance.
Using these two tools, vessel operators can achieve better performance while reducing costs through streamlined data collection and analysis, more accurate reporting, demonstrable evidence of regulatory compliance and more efficient and environmentally sound operations.
