Sweden’s ferry and shipping operator Stena Line will install NAPA software to monitor fuel consumption, speed, departure status and loading data onboard four further vessels.
Two ferries, the Stena Britannica and Stena Hollandica, and two freight vessels, the Stena Transit and Stena Transporter, will use NAPA software to monitor data which can be transmitted from ship to shore in real time and analysed in a database ashore.
Stena Line’s Energy Saving Programme (ESP) has been running since 2005. The company began installing NAPA for Operations software on vessels in 2007 when it became difficult to improve running conditions further without clearly and consistently monitoring the results of efficiency measures.
Since the beginning of the project, Stena Line has implemented comprehensive shore-based monitoring of the eco efficiency of 22 ships and Stena’s total ESP program has recorded USD 9 million in verified fuel savings.
