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, 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, because of the recent high fuel prices and as the industry looks to reduce its environmental impact and move to a lower-carbon future.

Building pressure in combination with the lack of low carbon alternative fuels and the big potential to operate more efficient it's crucial for ship operators to focus on operational efficiency to rapidly drive down emissions in the short term, while the global fleet is undergoing a shift to zero-emission fuels in the long term. In fact, there are thousands of things we can optimize today that improve operational efficiency of vessels, and by extension reduce fuel consumption. Organizations today are already leveraging the Onboard Fuel Efficiency app to improve operational efficiency - and save significant amounts on fuel costs!

We experienced a 16% increase in fuel savings in the first few months of using Onboard. The crew is happy they don't have to fill in their logbooks anymore and all of the data is available to 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 to measure fuel consumption.

Next to standard navigation data such as vessel position, distance travelled, speed, easily add additional sensor sources to monitor critical vessel process parameters.

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 machine data that’s automatically collected with operational data registered by the crew in 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

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.

Offshore features

  • See your targets for fuel efficiency
  • Track your performance in real time, and receive longer-term feedback
  • Share your own performance-enhancing feedback

Onshore features

  • Set fleet targets, track performance and quickly identify inefficiencies
  • Streamline your entire operations to save fuel, based on detailed insights in-app
  • Export data to Excel, create your own reports, and give real-time access to your clients

Launch fast, optimize, and don't stop

Getting started with Onboard is easy. We offer services and support throughout rollout and beyond on request, that extends installation support to consultancy services, training your crew and colleagues onshore, and supporting you with custom data analysis.

  1. Install plug and play Maritime IoT Gateway

    Installation is a simple procedure, which can be done by your own staff, with the help of Onboard, or by Onboard completely.
