New Vicmar Fuel System Could Save Operators Millions Of Dollars

According to its developers, marine engineers Victor and Anatoly Mezheritsky of Vicmar Engineering Ltd., Vancouver, B.C., Canada, a new fuel-saving system could save fleet operators millions of dollars.

BC Ferry Corp., operator of one of North America's largest ferry fleets, stated the system is being tested on the ferry Queen of Alberni.

Another major operator said Vicmar's engine washing system had tested better than any other tried to date.

Tests over the past year on Seaspan International's rail and trailer ship Seaspan Greg have shown fuel savings of close to 6 percent.

Seaspan spends about $11 million a year on marine diesel fuel, consuming in excess of 36 million liters annually. BC Ferries' fuel costs totaled $32.5 million last year.
