Baja Ferries installs stabiliser control system

Baja Ferries has installed the Pinfabb_ECO smart stabiliser control software system aboard the Caribbean Fantasy RoRo/passenger ship, with the aim of optimising fuel performance and reducing emissions by minimising stabiliser drag.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The vessel is managed by France Ferries, and the system was installed during the ship’s drydock in Menzel Burguiba with the support of the CMR Tunisia shipyard in less than a week, including time taken for testing.

“Our conditions were to perform this job in a short time and to provide data to the officers on watch in order to be able to optimise the use of the stabilisers as much as possible and not to consider fins should be in use, for passengers’ comfort, from beginning to end of sea passage,” said Nicolas Carion, France Ferries’ technical manager.

The adoption of this software system will also form part of the company’s SEEMP (ship energy efficiency management plan), Mr Carion added.

Pinfabb_ECO measures factors that influence ship stability, like wind, current, cargo conditions, weather, propulsion power and ship drift, and advises the crew on how to optimise stability for fuel consumption reduction.{/mprestriction}
