Miros's Launches New Accurate Speed Measurement To Optimise Fuel Efficiency

Miros, the new technology, added another piece to the fuel efficiency puzzle by contributing to reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions on all ship types. Pilot customer BW Dry Cargo believes they can achieve up to 10% fuel savings by leveraging accurate speed through water measurements. Whether the price of marine fuel is up or down, fuel costs will always be the biggest expense in operating a ship as much as 50-60% of operating costs. No matter the cost, ever-tightening regulations demanding emissions reduction will continue to drive owners and operators to seek measures for reductions in fuel consumption and the resulting emissions.

Now, Miros launches Miros Speed Through Water, a dry-mounted, radar-based system used to optimise hull speed with far greater accuracy than is possible with underwater measurement devices.

Mr Andreas Brekke CEO of Miros said that “Access to accurate speed through water data will enable improvements in the application of ship performance optimisation protocols. This, in turn, will lead to significant cost efficiencies for ship owners. This is a breakthrough in efficient and data-driven ship performance management and an important contribution to ambitious goals for lowering emissions in the industry.”

As a part of a 6 month pilot-project, BW Dry Cargo is testing the new technology on their BW Rye newbuild. The initial results of the pilot are promising, and BW Dry Cargo’s Managing Director, Christian Bonfils, believes Miros’ technology can contribute to significant fuel savings for the company. “I estimate up to 10% fuel savings using Miros Speed Through Water, which is a lot.”
