As a developer of marine fuel efficiency and optimization systems, GreenSteam will showcase its fuel saving GreenSteam Optimizer in the Danish pavilion at SMM in Hamburg, September 2014.

Making good decisions on board based on sound and accurate data is the basis for efficient operation of any vessel. GreenSteam Optimizer is an onboard decision support system that is an adaptive, data-driven solution, helping the master to make the right decisions.

Ship owners are now facing their biggest industry challenge ever, with both fuel costs and legislative efficiency targets. Achieving the absolute maximum fuel efficiency for a vessel means operating at the most efficient speed using as little fuel as possible. The optimal settings and parameters such as trim, draft are a vital in setting up the vessel, and depend on a range of conditions such as load, waves, wind, water depth and many other factors. By continually optimizing the trim and draft of the vessel based on data collected onboard the vessel, propulsion resistance is minimized, saving fuel.

The GreenSteam Optimizer is compact and intuitive, simple to use and fitting the unit to existing vessels is simple and straightforward requiring no major modification of the ship, the developer said. Importantly, installation takes less than a day if the cabling has been prepared. The system consists of two small GreenSteam radars installed in the bridge wings, and touch screen console which connects to wind and flow meter sensors, trim and the radars.

This data can be made available to users in various convenient ways, allowing the customer to carry out high-quality analyses of the vessel. The collected data is of a much higher frequency and quality than for example what is obtained through so-called noon reporting.

“We are very excited about showing off our systems at SMM in September, and looking forward to the opportunity to meet people at our stand at theDanish Pavilion Hall B1. EG,” said Daniel J. Jacobsen CEO & Co-founder of GreenSteam.
