Why A Measurement Of Shaft Power Can Save You Money On Fuel & Maintenance

Shaft power measurement

The Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) requirements were made legally binding by the MARPOL Annex VI, the first climate change treaty to be adopted since the Kyoto Protocol. The technical requirements in this treaty are aimed at promoting the use of more energy efficient (less polluting) equipment and engines.

A measurement of shaft power can not only help to meet these requirements, but also save money on fuel and the maintenance of your fleet.
