Stena Lines pilot project using artificial intelligence technology to predict the most fuel-efficient way to operate a vessel has shown to be successful. The results show reduced fuel consumption by 2-3 % per trip. The technology will now be launched on more vessels. In 2018 Stena Line started a pilot project on board the Stena Scandinavica on the Gothenburg Kiel route using AI technology to predict the most fuel-efficient way to operate a vessel. The results show that the project has been successful, enabling the captain and crew to save 2-3 % fuel per trip with AI assistance. The software is now named Stena Fuel Pilot and will be installed on five more Stena Line vessels during the autumn. The ambition is to do a complete fleet wide roll-out on all 37 vessels in Europe during 2020.

Reducing the vessels fuel consumption is a priority area for Stena Line and the ferry company have a target to lower the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 2.5 % yearly. Fuel is also one of the largest costs for a ferry company like Stena Line, at around 20% of total costs. AI technology has shown to be a successful solution to tackle these challenges and achieve the ambitious targets we have set for ourselves.
