Fuel consumption monitoring of river & sea vessels

Fuel consumption monitoring of river & sea vessels

Goals and objectives

Fuel theft prevention Fuel theft prevention

Record amount of consumed fuel Record amount of consumed fuel

Engine hours monitoring

Engine operation parameters monitoring  

Location and course monitoring

 Document optimisation

Fuel consumption monitoring and location monitoring of water transport allows shipowners and dispatching companies to reduce fleet’s idle time, prevent fuel theft, reduce operation cost, make accounting of fuel used easier, improve crew discipline.

Operation principle

Main part of the system – accurate DFM fuel flow meters that are mounted on main engine, auxiliary engines, diesel generators and boilers. Real fuel consumption, engine hours in different work modes and other parameters are sent via online gateway to the Internet. Sent data is displayed in ORF4 telematics service on virtual dashboard and in form of tables and charts.

Features

 Rout, course and speed monitoring

 

 Monitoring of hourly and total fuel consumption of each engine consuming fuel

 

 Distinguishing fuel consumption in different work modes - idle, optimal, overload

 

 Notification on important events in real time via ORF4 telematics service, by e-mail or SMS

 

 Post-trip analysis: distance, idle time, fuel consumption per trip, compliance with schedule, etc.
