#In swedish: Blueflow goes electric…

Tillsammans med Callenberg har vi nu installerat Blueflow på Rederi Ballerinas elfartyg E/S Sjövägen. Fartyget är helt elektriskt och drivs med två stycken elmotorer på vardera 125 kW. Genom inkoppling mot fartygets befintliga automationssystem så mäter och beräknar vi parametrar som kWh/Nm, batteristatus, laddeffekter och mycket mer. Fartyget kompletterar redan befintliga installationer på Gurli och Kung Ring i Blueflow Online 3.0. För mer information om projektet, kontakta oss på telefon 0854021680 så berättar vi mer.

#In swedish: Då var årets sista installation driftsatt

På M/S Sandhamn mäts bränsleförbrukningen på fyra stycken Scaniamotorer. Det görs genom inkoppling till befintliga Beijerpaneler på bryggan. Hjälpmotorernas uteffekt mäts med energimätare och systemet beräknar sedan bränsleförbrukningen genom mappning mot motorernas verkningsgradskurvor. Två landströmsanslutningar mäts också med energimätare. Värmepannans förbrukning mäts med flödesmätare från Schweiziska företaget AIC. Installationen utfördes även denna gång av El- och Marinteknik på Beckholmen. Som vanligt tackar vi för ett gott samarbete och ser fram mot fler projekt tillsammans nästa år.

#In swedish: Ny installation klar, denna gång på Styrsöbolagets fraktbåt Ärlan.

Motorparametrarna mäts genom inkoppling mot befintliga Beijerpaneler på bryggan.

Vi tackar Johan på AB Ramantenn samt Magnus på MAGH för gott samarbete under installationen.

Blueflow Emission Monitor launched!

Blueflow kickstarts 2021 with the release of a new function, Blueflow Emission Monitor. The new emission module is a complete tool for compliance monitoring and emission reporting

All global, as well as local ECA/SECA areas are supported. Your vessel´s momentary emissions are compared with the applicable ECA limits, and instant alarms are sent if the limits are exceeded. Onboard the ship, the crew are alerted well in advance of an ECA area, giving them time to prepare and take appropriate actions.

The module is an integrated part of the standard Blueflow online 3.0 system, and combined together, they will put you in total control of your fleet´s fuel- and energy consumption, as well as of your emission situation.

Please do not hesitate to contact us or any of our partners for more information.

We are happy to present a new product in the Blueflow portfolio – Blueflow Wallboard

Blueflow Wallboard gives the operator an overview of the fleet´s key performance indexes, and enables a quick analysis in one glance.

The wallboard is presented on a standard large screen TV and will fit perfectly in your company reception or in the office conference room.

Blueflow Wallboard gives a quick status overview of the fleet such as energy consumption, costs,  geographical locations on a map, speed, emission levels and more.
It is very well suited for monitoring energy and emission targets because the screen is intended to be placed in environments such as coffee rooms, hallways, receptions or other well-visited areas.

You decide what the wallboard should contain according to your needs and wishes.

We are right now in the middle of a project where we are rolling out Blueflow Energy Management on Trafikverket/Färjerederiet – STA Road Ferries across the country

In connection with each installation, all crews receive a solid training in energy management and the knowledge of using the Blueflow system in their daily work on lowering fuel and energy consumption.

The training carried out by Smart Eco Shipping is a vital part of Färjerederiet’s determination for a successful energy management project and thus also in their work for a sustainable environment throughout their fleet.

Energy management is the term given to activities associated with monitoring, analysing, controlling and saving energy

Reducing our CO2 emissions is one of today’s most pressing issues. Every organization can make some contribution to reducing its CO2 emissions. The fact that this can reduce costs also makes it attractive to do. An energy management system helps an organization work systematically on reducing its energy consumption.

Energy management takes careful planning, implementation and continuous evaluation to determine whether energy saving actions carried out through:

  • Company commitment
  • Understanding energy use
  • Planning and organisation
  • Implementation
  • Verification, monitoring and reporting
  • Iteration

BLUEFLOW ANNOUNCES ORDER FOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO TRAFIKVERKET/FÄRJEREDERIET – STA ROAD FERRIES

A total of 26 installations will be carried out during a period of 18 months. This order confirms Blueflow´s position as a major supplier of Energy Management Systems for the marine market. This project runs in collaboration with our partner METS technology in Uddevalla.

ECO-driving taken to the next level!

With our newly launched function “Blueflow ECO-trip” the driver of the ship gets instant feedback of the ship´s fuel- and energy consumption. The graphical interface compares current trip with last trip on the same route, and different driving techniques are directly comparable. All historical routes are compared in a list, and average values are calculated and presented.

Saving fuel and energy is not magic. It is about hard work, training and motivation combined with a support system that actually enables follow-up of implemented measures. Doing this correctly, 10-20% of saved fuel is fully realistic targets.

If interested, please contact us and we will help you save fuel as well.
