Eniram’s dynamic trimming technology monitors and optimizes trim in real time and has enabled customers to save on fuel costs and reduce carbon output. In addition, Eniram’s technology provides intelligence on a corporate level by providing information that helps management understand their fleet’s carbon footprint, i.e. the extent to which dynamic factors such as fouling, speed and trim affect the performance and total energy consumption of a vessel. This helps Eniram customers meet the requirements of highly regulated areas and protect the environment.
