Webinar: Weather routing x Automated propulsion control

To fully realize the potential of weather routing, it must be used in combination with automated propulsion control, ensuring that minimum power is used for the whole voyage. EcoPilot™ integrates with the propulsion control system for continuous optimization, throughout the voyage, to achieve the best fuel economy based on your target ETA or CII value. … Read more

Improve CII ratings: Effective actions for shipowners and operators

To achieve and improve CII ratings shipowners will have to find ways to decrease CO2 emissions, in relation to the transport work performed. In our previous CII article, we explained how the rating is calculated.  The algorithm for attained CII describes the core issue: Simplified, the attained CII for a ship is calculated as emissions … Read more

“A game changer” – industry press on EcoPilot’s CII mode

The announcement of Qtagg’s addition of a CII mode to EcoPilot has gathered attention in the maritime industry media.  EcoPilot is already an established voyage optimization system, used to save fuel and ensure on-time-arrival through optimized and automated propulsion control. It uses real-time weather data, sea state and ship data to calculate and execute optimal … Read more

Getting the desired CII value for any voyage

EcoPilot with CII mode for fuel optimization in machine control room

Captains and fleet operators can now decide on a CII value for a voyage and have the optimal propulsion plan executed automatically. There is no need to run simulations beforehand, or for the captain to make continuous manual speed adjustments during the voyage. CII mode voyage optimization in real-time We are shortly releasing an update … Read more
