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
We’re pleased to announce that Qtagg soon is setting sail to the much-awaited Donsö Shipping Meet (DSM) in just a few weeks! Join us at our booth to explore the easier way to cut emissions, save fuel and ensure your ship’s CII rating. We enable better performance, based on your operational priorities.
Wärtsilä Corporation, Trade press release, 28 June 2023 Wärtsilä Automation, Navigation and Control Systems (ANCS), part of technology group Wärtsilä, has launched an innovative retrofit solution for its marine engine governor system in collaboration with Swedish marine green tech company Qtagg. The solution is designed to extend the lifespan of
Our team just returned after completing the installation of a new DEGO diesel engine governor and ASAC actuator on the ship Da Shen. Da Shen is currently undergoing renovations and upgrades before it is taken into operation by McKeil Marine in Canada. The new DEGO IV governor and and ASAC
We have completed yet another installation for Irish Ferries, this time on the ship Isle of Inisheer. Isle of Inisheer is one of Irish Ferries’ Ro-Ro cargo ships that sails several times a day between Dover (UK) and Calais (France). The installation includes our state-of-the-art EcoPilot fuel-saving voyage optimization system
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
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
The new IMO regulation on CII aims to improve the energy efficiency of ships worldwide. This is a summary on what the CII requirements are, how you can calculate the CII rating for your ships and what reporting you are required to complete. The IMO regulations on CII came into
Qtagg recently secured an order on a total upgrade of Silja Europa’s propulsion control system, that will decrease the ship’s fuel consumption by 6% and CO2 emissions by 2096 tons yearly. The overhaul includes engine speed governors, fuel rack actuators, pitch control and voyage optimization with EcoPilot. Silja Europa is
Since installing EcoPilot on Primula Seaways over a year ago, DFDS has evaluated the effect on fuel consumption carefully. When EcoPilot is used, the ship’s fuel consumption drops by 6%, on average. Jan Blak, Superindendent at DFDS, is responsible for optimizing vessel performance and point of contact for the installation.
Reduce fuel consumption and control emissions
EcoPilot reduces fuel consumption by 5-7% and takes the pain out of CII management. Contact us for a demo.
