REDUCING FUEL CONSUMPTION
Many ships today operate below their original design speed.
A vessel with Controllable Pitch (CP) Propellers operating at constant RPM is usually optimized at 85% MCR (Maximum Continuous Rating).
Reduced service speed gives an off-design condition where the efficiency will significantly decrease and result in unnecessary high fuel consumption.
Lean Marine offers system solutions that adds an optimized operational mode for the propulsion system.
The FuelOpt system gives extensive fuel savings without compromising the advantages of using a CP Propeller together with a shaft generator for electrical power generation.
