Short sea end-to-end operator Containerships has selected Finland-based energy management technology and data analytic services provider Eniram to help optimise its vessel performance and reduce fuel consumption.

The company’s platform, trim and speed will be used to optimise the vessel’s fuel efficiency and improve its eco-friendly design.

Eniram Sales & Marketing vice-president Jonas Bergring said: "Containerships’ investment in energy management shows their clear determination to propose greener transportation, and we look forward to working together on new projects in the future."

For this project, Eniram will be also using its new, solid state attitude sensors for the first time, offering better accuracy and reliability for the recording of sea state conditions, he added.

"Containerships’ investment in energy management shows their clear determination to propose greener transportation."

Containerships COO Frederic Leca said: "Our constant focus on reducing our emissions via improved consumption is very much in-line with our company environmental strategy (LNG vessels, LNG trucks and extensive use of intermodality).

"Furthermore, we see an excellent fit between two leading Nordic companies who can share different experiences: short seas shipping and Eniram fuel consumption reduction expertise."

Headquartered in Helsinki, Eniram offers solutions ranging from single, onboard applications to comprehensive fleet analysis. The company serves ships such as from cruise liners, tankers, LNGs, container ships bulkers and ferries.

In March, Eniram launched an onboard and onshore boil-off management tool designed for LNG carriers.

The new tool will enable officers onboard onshore to understand and monitor the actual boil-off rate for LNG carriers.
