Automation system supports Green Ship portfolio
Kongsberg Maritime’s latest addition to its K-Chief automation system includes a 'Fuel Saver' application developed as part of the company’s commitment to the Green Ship concept.
Through provision of detailed data and advice based on multiple factors including current engine use, the application can be used to enhance vessel performance and reduce emissions.
K-Chief is a distributed monitoring and control system that provides high-end functionality for power management, auxiliary machinery control, ballast/bunker monitoring and control, plus cargo monitoring.
The Fuel Saver monitors functions such as torque, fuel index, ship speed and hull efficacy and provides information in a format that enables corrective actions. In addition it provides trim and draught optimisation, and suggests optimal speed, optimal heading and optimal rpm taking into account hull fouling, propeller fouling, voyage planning, and bunker cost.
Fuel Saver is part of Kongsberg's Green Ship portfolio, alongside the MetaPower torque and power monitoring system, which provides data to enable a vessel to maintain or increase speed while saving significant amounts of fuel, and reducing emissions.
