Defining Eco speed– Results
An analysis was conducted to ascertain the fuel savings value from fuel burn from July –September (90-day baseline) when the vessel transit > 5.5kts (inter-field transits are included) versus fuel consumption when adjusting to the economical speed =5.5kts.
Total Fuel burn when transiting >5.5kts = 178,176L
Total Fuel burn forecasted with adjusted = 117,986L
* speed to approx. 5.5kts utilizing 3 generators
Fuel burn reduction with speed is adjusted = 60,190L
CO2 emissions reduction = Approx. 158mT
