With fuel being the main consumable on board any vessel, while also being the greatest variable in the operation, it is the best place to obtain savings in operating expenses (OPEX). Implementing systems that allow insight into the vessel performance, gives you the ability to directly measure the effect of any changes made on board, effectively showcasing financial impacts of any action. Insatech Marine provides instruments and systems for all sizes of scopes within performance measurement.
When you start measuring your fuel consumption with accurate flow meters you can gain great insights into the ships everyday consumption. It gives you the means to adjust how you sail and find the most optimal way that saves you money. It also shows you the change in consumption when you implement improvements like hull cleaning and gives you a basis to make data driven decisions.
Continuously increasing the operational efficiency in shipping is a condition for staying in business. Increasing crew awareness and knowledge of accurate fuel consumption is key to getting the most out of improvement projects and new procedures. Data driven decision making in real-time is the cornerstone of securing the added profit when optimising your operation.
