Eefting Energy Fuel Efficiency Monitoring Systems have the capability to connect a dynamic trim sensor. A dynamic trim sensor gives valuable real time trim information, as during sailing the “static trim” changes with speed and draught.
As trim can greatly influence your ship’s performance and thus the fuel efficiency, accurate trim information is essential.
The trim sensor will aid in determining the optimal trim during sailing. Also tables can be uploaded from trim analysis calculations. The calculated data can be compared to real measurements and settings can be further optimized.
All this will result in better ship operations, with possible savings on fuel oil consumption of 1-5%.
Tests are in progress and software is being fine-tuned. All systems delivered after autumn 2014 can be upgraded with the dynamic trim module. Come back soon for more information, or contact us at email@example.com
