We focus on the future
With a strong belief that energy efficiency is the key for survival in the long term, we want our fleet to continuously focus on lowering their environmental impact.
Better vessels and better fuels
We do not only focus on optimizing the next generation of vessels, we also put focus on improving the fleet that we have today. Looking at alternative fuels that works on our conventional fleet in order to lower the Co2 emissions as well as changing technology onboard to improve energy efficiency.
On our two new buildings energy efficiency was the main focus when we developed them. Looking at different new technologies that would help us attain a low EEDI value as a confirmation of our hard work.
Prospero and Pacifico are filled with state of the art technology such as DC-Link, Batteries, waste heat converters etc. All in order to be in the top of tanker vessels on the market.
On Prospero and Pacifico we have installed battery pack to achieve several differnet advantages.
- Boost propulsion
- Always power to system to ensure safe operation
- Alternative to running Auxiliary engine in narrow passages
- Peak shaving
For our conventional vessels, the focus has been on looking at alternative fuels that works onboard without retrofitting’s. In the summer of 2022 we introduced a 100% FAME based bio fuel on Excello and during the fall both Evinco and Solero started to run on this fuel as well. Now the vessels are alternating using MGO and biofuels.
Fleet Analytics & FuelOpt
All of our vessels are connected to the online performance and reporting program Fleet Analytics. There are flowmeters and other monitoring devices onboard the vessels constantly recording the usage of fuel for different purposes as well as monitoring the kW usage. This tool allows us to keep track of the vessels energy usage and improve our operations.
Peak Shaving means creating a balance variable loads on Main Engine and Auxiliary Engines. Allowing the engines to work on a constant load where the batteries are charged when their is a surplus of power and used when there is a shortage of power.
Peak Shaving are used both during a voyage and during cargo operation.
Energy production will be optimized to highest efficiency.
Calculations shows that the savings will be
- 284 ton CO2 to be saved in one year in open sea
- 269 ton CO2 to be saved in one year in port
FuelOpt is a system that deliveres real-time propulsion optiamasion. The system takes in to account parameters such as vessel speed, engine power and fuel consumption. The system can be set with focus on one of the parameters or in a combination of them. All with focus on creating enegery efficiecy as well as lowering the emissions.
