To fully harness the benefits of digitalization, you need a partner who understands the challenges you face as well as the unique LNG carrier environment. Variables like boil off, dual or tri-fuel diesel-electric propulsion and the operation of reliquefaction plants or gas combustion units are critical not just for efficiency, but also for safety.
Increase profitability with digital solutions for LNG shipping
With low LNG prices, fleet overcapacity, and increasingly strict environmental regulations, the current market and operating environment for LNG is challenging to say at least. The good news is that LNG shipping offers unique optimization opportunities when using digital solutions.
From LNG engine management to charter party monitoring, Eniram’s digital solutions are developed with the LNG shipping market in mind. By delivering better transparency and improved cooperation between all stakeholders, our solutions help you to react more quickly to issues while increasing your efficiency, reliability, and profitability at the same time.

Bring transparency to your LNG carrier operations
The complex environment that LNG carriers operate in creates great opportunities for improving efficiency. Eniram integrates data from crew operations, vessel performance, and the LNG cargo on board.
We enrich this data with advanced modeling techniques to produce a holistic, near real-time view of what is happening on board your vessel.
This unprecedented level of transparency enables you to operate the vessel more cost efficiently, reduce transportation costs and take full advantage of your assets. It also helps build stronger relationships with your stakeholders and partners.
Gain control over Boil-off
Managing how the boil-off gas is utilized onboard (engines / boilers, gas combustion unit / steam dump or reliquefaction) can lead to significant optimization opportunities.
Eniram can help you achieve savings by providing valuable insights into the factors affecting the boil-off gas generation (sailing conditions, routes, vessel motions, cargo tank pressures) as well as the performance of the cargo containment system.
Improve Fuel Efficiency with Right Engine and Fuel Combinations
For vessels with dual / tri-fuel electric propulsion, the combination of fuel and load /number of engines offers additional optimization opportunities. Eniram solutions give real-time recommendations taking into account current or anticipated power demand, different fuel modes, gas management strategy or operational restrictions.
We are very pleased with the early results. However we see this as just the beginning. We can achieve significant further savings through utilizing the additional data and analysis provided by the Eniram solution.
