As well as the OCTOPUS software monitoring and reporting functionality, the recently launched Torductor Marine will increase the efficiency of the vessels. This torque measurement system optimizes engine and fuel efficiency of sea-going vessels. Contactless sensors are mounted facing the propeller shaft that sends the information to OCTOPUS, which visualizes the data.
“ABB has a tremendous focus on making sure that our customers meet regulations issued by the European Union and the IMO,” said Juha Koskela, Managing Director of ABB’s marine and ports business. “Our marine software has a vital role to play in meeting regulation and raising efficiency across whole fleets.”
Christian Hovden, Project Manager at Torvald Klaveness said, ‘Klaveness wants to improve the very nature of shipping. Embracing digital technology like ABB’s OCTOPUS Marine Software will help us realize our vision by allowing us to operate our vessels in a more efficient and sustainable way while complying with environmental regulations.”
The three new combination carriers will be built at YZJ Shipyard in China.
ABB’s Marine Software System called OCTOPUS is a unique product portfolio for performance management in marine operations. It reduces fuel consumption and emissions, and increases availability and safety on a single vessel, or on a whole fleet of vessels. http://bit.ly/MarineSoftware
