Singapore – October 27, 2015 – Eniram Ltd, the leading provider of energy management technology and analytic services to the shipping industry, today announced at Gastech (the world’s largest LPG, LNG and natural gas event) the release of Eniram EngineTM, a new tool to help guide TFDE LNG Carriers’ Engineers and Officers use the engines and fuel in the most efficient way.
High engine efficiency is imperative in order to achieve low SFC and cost savings. Eniram EngineTM takes into account real-time actual engine operation by combining data from onboard fuel flow meters with generator loads, power produced and Specific Fuel Consumption (SFC). Analyzing the data, Eniram Engine TM then suggests optimal engine combination and fuel type for the prevailing conditions in order to save fuel.
Eniram Engine TM understands the different operating modes of LNG carriers. When fuel oil is used to supplement Boil-Off Gas (BOG) as a fuel for the ship’s propulsion and energy systems, Eniram Engine TM will provide guidance only with this mixed fuel usage. Additionally, if the carrier is equipped with a reliquefication plant and the BOG is reliquefied and fuel oil is used for the engines, then only suggestions for fuel oil usage are provided.
In addition, the Buffer feature of Eniram Engine TM helps Engineers understand how much operating reserve power (or buffer) they have available for each engine suggestion compared to the actual, in case there is a sudden need to increase power output.
“Monitoring the available power is critical for safe and efficient operations on board. Eniram Engine TM demonstrates that even small changes in engine use pattern during a voyage can have a significant impact in reducing fuel and overall operating costs,” says Jussi Pyörre, CTO, Eniram. “Based on our analysis, ship owners will be able to achieve a reduction of 2% to 4% of total fuel consumption.”
THE FUTURE IS HERE: ENIRAM BOIL-OFF VIRTUAL SENSING
Are you attending Gastech? In addition to Eniram EngineTM, we will also be presenting how we use our patent-pending technology to measure the boil-off produced in cargo tanks and give an accurate real-time boil-off rate.
Presentations will be organized by our experts at our booth (D10), on Thursday October 29th and Friday October 30th, both days at 11:00.
