5% FUEL SAVINGS WITH LOADING MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
Environmental and health concerns, along with the rising cost of fossil fuels, make the reduction of ships’ energy consumption a priority.
The ODOT (Operational Displacement Optimisation Tool) project aims to provide crews with a decision support tool to better manage cargo (freight, consumables) and thus reduce energy consumption. It has been selected as part of the JOULE H2020 European collaborative project.
The ODOT module optimises weight distribution in the ship, reducing the ship’s underway resistance and leading to energy savings of more than 5%.
