Fuel saving analytics added to OstiaEdge

American firm ESRG has announced that its OstiaEdge monitoring suite will integrate a new range of data which can help ship owners and managers measure the fuel efficiency of a ship or of an entire fleet.

Originally, OstiaEdge was designed to enable Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), analysing the data from hundreds of sensors on board a ship to predict potential failures or performance degradations. With that information, managers can decide which maintenance operations are most urgent.

ESRG says that OstiaEdge now integrates shaft torque, weather and environmental data, fuel consumption, and draft and displacement. This set of analytics helps to show, among other things, how resistance due to hull and propeller condition impacts the speed and efficiency of a ship.

According to the Virginia-based company, ship managers can thus prioritise between hull and propeller maintenance and engine optimisation.

Alternatively, instead of having each ship’s hull cleaned at a set time period, the operator can schedule individual ships for hull cleanings based on their specific operating conditions and the impact the hull condition is having on its performance and fuel efficiency.

The analytics and actionable output are provided to both onboard users, such as the Master and Chief Engineer, as well as shore-based technical superintendents and fleet managers.

OstiaEdge combines a Software-as-a-Service (Saas) delivery model with an ISO 13374-1:2003, Mimosa-compliant open architecture.
