Helsinki, Finland – September 8, 2015 – Eniram Limited, the award-winning provider of fuel-saving technology and data analytics to the shipping industry, today announced the release of Eniram PerformanceTM 3.0, an upgrade specific to the cruise vessel market.
Eniram PerformanceTM is a robust decision-support tool that offers real-time operational guidance to optimize a vessel’s overall energy management in order to save fuel. The system predicts required energy and fuel consumption taking into consideration a wide range of variables such as wind and currents for each specific voyage.
Of particular importance is the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) screen that works like an electronic scorecard, showing traffic light values against commonly-agreed targets. The KPI screen starts with a high-level KPI, namely the total fuel consumption on the vessel which is then broken down to specific energy consumers like propulsion and service power. Service Power is for instance further split down to Hotel, Machinery and HVAC.
Eniram Performance 3.0’s intuitive widget offers optimal operational guidance, KPI view, KPI integration for the onshore fleet, and a visual energy tree which reveals expected and actual fuel consumption for the whole voyage both in monetary and Megawatt-hours (MWh) values. By normalizing KPIs, comparisons and tracking of energy efficiency operation on-board can be done interdependently of operational area or season.
Detailed analysis can also be viewed at all times onboard the ship. Easy-to-interpret benchmark graphs and reports help the crew to identify the key areas for savings potential by revealing performance deviations and monitoring selected performance parameters.
As the market leader for cruise vessel energy management, Eniram has supplied systems to many major global cruise lines. When Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines were designing the 18-deck, 168,666 GT state-of-the art Quantum of the Seas cruise ship, the company turned to Eniram to provide tools to holistically optimize ship energy management in addition to manage trim and speed as part of an industry-first ship-wide energy management system (EMS).
The new version of Eniram Performance for Cruise vessels is currently operational on two vessels in addition to Quantum of the Seas. Now through the enhanced KPI feature, officers, engineers as well as onshore personnel can continually monitor, communicate and discuss the overall performance of a vessel as needed to ensure optimal fuel and energy use.
Established in 2005, Eniram provides the maritime industry with energy management technology to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions. Created by experienced seafarers and technologists, Eniram’s solutions range from single onboard applications to comprehensive fleet analysis. They are used by small and large shipping companies on ships ranging from cruise liners, tankers, LNGs, container ships, bulkers and ferries.
