Pioneering revolutionary energy-saving technologies and initiatives
With rising fuel prices, tighter regulations and increasing environmental concerns, fuel consumption efficiency is a high priority for charterers as well as for ship operators. Thenamaris has taken the lead in the ship management industry by adopting ground-breaking technologies and rigorously pursuing initiatives that can dramatically increase fuel efficiency. We have:
- Installed the Becker Mewis Duct® on all vessels under management. This revolutionary energy-saving device produces up to 7% savings in fuel consumption and reduces CO2 emissions by the same amount. Thenamaris was the first company in the world to install the Becker Mewis Duct® on a vessel as large as the Suezmax.
- Adopted from an early stage ‘slow steaming’, a technique that also reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This enables Thenamaris to further improve its environmental standards and contribute to the sustainability of the industry.
Our goal: reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
Along with these two major initiatives, our technical team has undertaken a number of additional efforts to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Among others, these include: more frequent hull and propeller cleaning; the application of Variable Frequency Drives technology on electric motors to better control the speed of the motors and reduce electrical power; and closer monitoring of vessel performance via new systems that automatically capture and analyze data utilizing statistical methods, such as Gauss curve fitting.
