Fuel Efficiency

Slash up to 33% of your consumption

The Fuel Efficiency app is a fast, low-cost way to improve operational efficiency, slash fuel costs, comply with environmental regulations, and reduce your carbon footprint.

Are you ready to navigate to a low-carbon future?

Fuel efficiency is an increasingly important consideration in maritime operations globally, as the industry looks to reduce its environmental impact and move to a lower-carbon future. And in fact, there are thousands of things we can optimize today that improve operational efficiency, and by extension reduce fuel consumption. Organizations today are already leveraging the Onboard Fuel Efficiency app to improve operational efficiency, help align with environmental standards - and save significant amounts on fuel costs.

We experienced a 16% increase in fuel savings already, and the crew is happy they don't have to fill in their logbooks anymore. All the information from our sensors can be accessed via a mobile device by everybody within the supply chain.

Collect fuel consumption data from any system or sensor

The Fuel Efficiency app is an equipment-neutral solution that can be used across your entire fleet.

It directly interfaces with your engine, engine controller, vessel management system, or any fuel measurement sensor, and collects data to measure fuel consumption, vessel position, distance travelled, speed, and more.

Leverage operational data for drastic, sustainable cost reductions

Always running your vessel at the right speed can help you save some fuel. But across your operations there is enormous amounts of knowledge and data which can identify other ways to save. What if you could tap other data sources to make smart decisions around planning and vessel deployment?

With the Fuel Efficiency app, you can combine your fuel consumption and operational data from the Digital Logbook to build a comprehensive data set showing where you can make deep efficiency gains. This enables you to look at all possible aspects of your operation to save fuel, from both offshore and on.

Onboard Ship App

Meet EU MRV and IMO DCS requirements

With the combination of the Fuel Efficiency and Digital Logbook app you automatically collect all relevant emissions data needed to meet your EU MRV and IMO DCS requirements, and ensure data quality is never an issue.

No more paper reports, full traceability, and the detailed emissions insights generated for your fleet makes the reporting and verification process easy.

Go beyond compliance, empower your crew to meet targets

In the app, you can set targets per vessel, voyage, and activity. Crew can track progress against these in real time, and share feedback on opportunities for efficiency gains. These functionalities can turbocharge your fuel savings in a number of ways.

  1. Build a culture of efficiency

    By making your crew collaborators in the drive to save fuel, the app strengthens shared expectations and taps the crew’s knowledge around efficiency and sustainability. This creates a culture where meeting targets is not just a reactive task given to the crew, but an intrinsic part of daily behavior.

  2. Provide real-time feedback

    Over the course of a voyage, you can pinpoint the exact reasons why targets were or were not met, giving you the ability to make short-term decisions to reduce consumption.

  3. Benchmark your entire fleet

    Over the long term, this valuable information can help you build a comprehensive picture of why certain vessels beat targets more than others, and these best practices can be applied across your entire fleet - saving multiples of your original gains.
