Global Marine Fuel Management Market: Overview
Marine fuel management system helps in providing the accurate amount of fuel oil burnt for any particular vessel. Marine fuel management has grown in importance due to rising cost of marine fuel, more stringent government regulations to curb pollution at sea. Marine fuel management is an approach to measure, monitor, and report fuel usage of vessels/ships/boats in order to reduce fuel usage, improve fleet management, reduce emissions, and increase the operational efficiency.
The fleet owners, through marine fuel management, can track actual fuel consumption in correspondence with the operations of the vessel.
Complete analysis of effective operating strategies and clear understanding on how the vessel uses its fuel can be achieved by marine fuel management systems. The system helps marine crew to keep watch on all the fuel tanks levels right from the vessels bridge and control room. The total cost of marine fuel accounts for 60% - 70% of the vessels operating cost. Rising prices of marine fuel and strict environmental norms have led to higher focus on energy efficiency and environment protection. The system thus increases fuel efficiency and also helps save money for the fleet owners.
The marine fuel management system helps compare the amount of fuel taken on board with the actual consumption of each engine or generator. The systems also actively includes other factors like fuel theft detection and illegal transfer, fleet management and viscosity control and cargo delivery verifications. Marine fuel management systems monitors, measures and reports fuel consumption rates daily.
