Blue Ocean Solutions’ engine performance software enables users to verify the fuel savings gained from its BOS Emulsified Fuel System

Ship operators can verify fuel savings, evaluate engine data and understand operating conditions and efficiency through new engine performance software.

Blue Ocean Solutions’ engine performance software enables users to verify the fuel savings gained from its BOS Emulsified Fuel System (EFS) and will be delivered as a free add-on to the EFS.

“This is one of the eco-products and services that we are developing to help the maritime industry to meet the regulated but responsible challenges of doing sustainable eco-friendly business,” said Jerry Ng Kok Loon, CEO OF Blue Ocean Solutions.

The software also evaluates the condition of engines against factory test data and establishes current trending profile (patent pending) for preventive maintenance, to restore fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, said the company.

Blue Ocean Solutions claim the software and EFS combined can reduce fuel costs by 2-5%, pointing out that with the fuels compliant with the 2020 0.5% sulphur cap are expected to be more expensive.

The company stated the EFS reduces NOx emissions, alongside soot, smoke and PM emissions.

Mr Kok Loon added: ““We are also planning to provide a fleet optimization suite to achieve profit maximization. It will use the latest technologies like cloud, artificial intelligence and chain-block with a seamless user friendly dashboard so that the user experiences the ‘intuitive power’ but not the fear of ‘complicated to use’.”

The Motorship Propulsion & Emissions Conference covers environmental regulatory issues including SOx, NOx and CO2 emissions reduction as well as ballast water treatment, digitalisation, hybridisation, OEMs’ updates on engines, turbochargers, fuels and cylinder lubrication.
