Hansa orders trim optimisation module

German developer Interschalt says that Hansa Shipping has placed an order to integrate a trim optimisation module into the loading computer of 30 of its containerships.

Hamburg-based Hansa has been using Interschalt’s MACS3 loading computer for its own container fleet for several years and it has recently ordered 30 TROP modules.

Interschalt says that its TROP software optimises trim with regards to the current loading condition and main engine power. It adds that as an integrated module of the MACS3 loading computer, TROP also ensures best possible ballast distribution.

The software provider says that 30 container vessels ranging from 2,500 to 6,500 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) are being equipped under the deal.

Hansa’s managing director Peter Mackeprang said: “Combining the loading computer with a sophisticated module for improving efficiency by optimising trim is another step in the right direction to being able to offer a modern, energy-efficient fleet to our charterers.”

“Our vessels are equipped with state-of-the-art software technology. With TROP, every customer can optimise trim easily and hence save fuel and money.”
