Fuel consumption monitoring of river & sea vessels
Goals and objectives
Fuel theft prevention
Record amount of consumed fuel
Engine hours monitoring
Engine operation parameters monitoring
Location and course monitoring
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.
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.
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.
Ventspils port, Latvia
Task: monitoring of fuel consumption and prevention of manipulations with fuel.
Solution: DFM 250 AK fuel flow meters for gensets and DFM 250 DK for engines
Result: ~60% decrease of fuel consumption within first 2 weeks of operation.
Mid-sized dry cargo vessels
Task: fuel consumption monitoring of river vessels and optimization of routes.
Solution: DFM 250CCAN fuel flow meters are installed into fuel supply line of engine. DFM 100CCAN fuel flow meters are installed into fuel supply line of diesel generators and boiler.
Result: reduction of fuel costs (real consumption per hour appeared to be 100 L lower, than normative value)
Container ships and special vessels
Large logistics companies
Task: fuel consumption monitoring of sea vessels, composition of efficient fleet monitoring system for multimodal transportation.
Solution: DFM Marine fuel flow meters are installed into fuel supply line of engine. DFM 250CCAN and DFM 100CCAN fuel flow meters are installed into fuel supply line of diesel generators and auxiliary engines. Data can be additionally sent to dashboard.
Result: operation costs reduction up to 40%
