Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan Solutions

CAIM, in partnership with Fugro, the International leading Company with ‘state of the art’ navigation and positioning technologies, has widen its navigation products and services range for Deep Sea commercial shipping industry specific to meet the latest Resolution MEPC. 203(62), adding a new chapter 4 to MARPOL Annex VI on ‘Regulations on Energy Efficiency for ships’ to make mandatory the EEDI for new ships and the SEEMP for all ships (entering into force on 1 January 2013).

The Fugro multi-function Marinestar® Maneuvering System and Dynamic Trim Optimization (Marinestar® MS) can be used to meet and implement your Company’ SEEMP plan.

Marinestar® MS has been developed by Fugro based on a collaboration agreement with DNV Technical Advisory- Ship hydrodynamics, which studies the hull resistance and provide advice on optimal trim data using advanced RANS Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) study.

Marinestar® MS is a DGNSS (DGPS & DGLONASS) based advanced navigation and trim optimization system which provides ship owners with several benefits for improving navigational safety, energy efficiency and cost savings.

Marinestar® MS system key benefits:

Navigation Functions

  • Transmitting Heading Device (Gyro Compass alternative)
  • Rate of Turn Indicator
  • Speed & Distance measuring device (alternative for Doppler log over ground)
  • ECDIS Precise Positioning System
  • Docking assistance by displaying quay distances
  • Quay Drift Alarm
  • Squat Alarm

Dynamic Trim Optimization for fuel savings

  • Trim optimization can save fuel in the range of 2% to 5% per annum.
  • Marinestar® MS calculates the dynamic trim using the two GNSS antennas.
  • The software provides an option to manually enter the optimum trim information in a matrix of speed, draft and optimum trim.
  • It helps the operator to make a quick judgment about whether the vessel is correctly trimmed at any given time.

Marinestar® MS is Type Approved as a Transmitting Heading Device (THD) and Speed & Distance Measuring Equipment (SDME) and can be an alternative for the conventional Gyro compass or the Doppler speed log over ground as stated on BSH Certificates
