Offshore owner achieves near 10% fuel efficiency gains
The crews on the REM PSV fleet have recently carried a campaign to increase fuel efficiency, which resulted in a 9.8% increase in fuel efficiency over the course of three months. This produced 1,700 tons of CO2 emission savings and a fuel consumption saving in excess of US$0.5 million dollars.
The objective of the REM Offshore campaign was to reduce vessel emissions levels in key modes of operation, such as dynamic positioning (DP), standby, port and transit eco. To do this, a specific part of the project was built around identifying and overcoming technical and operational barriers. In three of the four modes of operation double-digit savings was achieved during the campaign period. Some vessels even saw savings >20% in certain operational modes. The detailed analytics and measurement of savings was done by leveraging the high-quality fuel and operational data REM is collecting through the VPS Maress data-driven decarbonisation solution.
