Ballast management software for 5% fuel savings
Environmental and health concerns and the rising cost of fossil fuels make the reduction of energy consumption of ships a priority.
The ODOT (Operational Displacement Optimisation Tool) project aims to provide crews with a decision support tool to better manage cargo (cargo, consumables) and thus reduce energy consumption. It has been selected as part of the H2020 JOULE European collaborative project.
Using complex algorithms, the ODOT module optimises the distribution of masses in the ship, which reduces the resistance to forward motion and leads to energy savings of 5%.
