Pioneer Marine Opts for ABB Fuel Monitoring Systems
The Singapore-based dry bulk carrier owner and operator Pioneer Marine has contracted Amarcon, a fully owned subsidiary of ABB, to install fuel monitoring systems on 12 Green Dolphin Handysize bulk carriers that will be built by YangZhou GuoYu Shipbuilding.
ABB’s Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan-compliant Octopus-Onboard fuel monitoring set-up consists of Coriolis flow sensors, a Torductor torque measurement system and a software solution.
”The Octopus-Onboard advisory system compliments the Green Dolphin newbuild design and introduces a new dimension to ensuring optimal fuel efficiency. Accurate advice based on the sensor-measured information enables the crew to operate the vessel in the most fuel efficient manner, thus reducing our carbon footprint,” said Pankaj Khanna, President and CEO of Pioneer Marine.
