ABB Energy Management System

Posted by Irina Tabakina

ABB won an order from Spanish ferry operator Baleària to supply energy management systems for one of its largest vessels. ABB’s advisory software will be installed onboard the ferry Martin i Soler, with options for additional vessels. The package supplied is envisioned to generate a more than 2% savings in propulsion power. The EMMA Advisory Suite is a decision-support tool to minimize the overall energy costs for individual vessels and entire fleets. This installation will cover dynamic trim optimization and hull condition monitoring. The package is designed to help the vessel operator to optimize required propulsive power and forecast hull and propeller fouling, with both contributing to reduced fuel consumption.
