Many on-board systems are sources of potential energy savings based on an analysis of their loading and operational profiles: 

  • Pump systems can be optimised by considering flow velocity versus power consumption in high-load periods or the use of energy-efficient variable-frequency drives and/or multiple pump unit configurations
  • The utilisation of waste heat/cooling energy recovery technology can reduce the overall heating/cooling energy balance
  • The installation of efficient ballast water handling systems can reduce the amounts of energy used to move ballast
  • Consistent operation of an engine at or near its peak fuel efficiency can be achieved by real-time adjustment based on the required loading and ambient conditions
  • The consideration of air volume and pressure demands in the design of compressed air systems
