GreenSteam optimisation for DFDS

Danish developer GreenSteam reports that shipping company DFDS is to install its fuel saving system on around 20 vessels.

The ships will be equipped with GreenSteam Optimizer, an onboard tool which provides dynamic trim optimisation. DFDS will also use GreenSteam Manager, an online browser-based tool which allows shore operators to remotely monitor the performance of the vessels.

Optimizer collects a multitude of sensor readings and its software calculates the trim and draught that will give minimal propulsion resistance. A touch screen console on the bridge gives guidance to the crew.

“At GreenSteam, we firmly believe that fuel efficiency can be improved by pioneering digital technologies,” said CEO Daniel Jacobsen.

GreenSteam has recently secured a $2 million investment from Castro InnoVentures, part of the BP Group.

DFDS operates 50 passenger and freight ships in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the English Channel.
