Vessel performance optimisation is a confusing subject. We know we’re all supposed to be trying harder to improve the performance of our vessels. There are a multitude of methods, with different costs and returns, much of which is unclear. It is also not clear whether optimising vessel performance is better done just by acting on basic data, or with a more complex mix of sensor data and analytics.

Much of vessel performance comes down to decisions or behaviours of the crew, which can be hard to monitor or modify from shore. And the drivers behind vessel performance optimisation are also complex – some companies are trying to reduce fuel costs, others are trying to look more attractive to charterers or investors, or reduce impact on the environment.

We also have the forthcoming low sulphur fuel rules to consider. But should they have any impact on actual vessel optimisation behaviour?

At our 2nd Singapore vessel performance optimisation forum in October 2019, we’ll try to develop more clarity around these issues. We are particularly keen to hear from people from shipping companies who have done vessel performance optimisation projects and able to talk about them, or have ideas and experiences to share.

Ship propellers from MMG have been setting the benchmark for decades in terms of design, size, quality and efficiency. The key to our success are propellers that perfectly match the vessel, its engine and the purpose of the ship.

As fuel prices are increasing, ship owners are revising their requirements. The trend towards slow steaming has made propeller efficiency a top priority. Our new label »Efficiency by MMG« is reserved for propellers of the latest generation that offer not only powerful propulsion but help to conserve valuable raw materials, minimise CO2 emissions and reduce operating costs. With »Efficiency by MMG«, we respond to the ever more stringent environmental and fuel efficiency requirements for maritime vessels.

MMG is setting new standards in the field of high-efficiency propeller drives with the innovative “5D Propulsion” concept. By using five innovative digital technologies we guarantee design quality and production accuracy that are unique worldwide.

Our objective: Making transport by sea as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible – now and in the future. All our activities – from the design department and the production floor to the sales office – are dedicated to this challenge.
