Transas Wave to save fuel

Transas has launched a fuel efficiency monitoring system called Transas Wave, a standalone application used to record and analyse a ship’s fuel consumption.

Wave connects to the vessel’s navigation sensors, flow meter, engine data and emission sensors to collect information which is then used to optimise the operation of a vessel with help from an online decision support system.

Monitored parameters include speed, trim and planned route, and Transas estimates that optimal operation across these areas could lead to fuel savings of approximately 5 per cent.

The company says that integration with ECDIS for route optimisation will be available later this year, together with an ECO module designed to assist in ensuring compliance with new MARPOL requirements for recording and monitoring of vessel emissions.

“Change to a ‘Green’ mindset is important,” commented Anders Rydlinger, Transas Marine navigation product development director.

“At Transas we demonstrate commitment to protecting the environment. Wave continues this concept and moves Transas to the very forefront of fuel saving technology making sure that our customers stay ahead of the wave.”
