Energy management system, Acon

Reducing energy consumption and meeting environmental regulations. An advanced awareness system which helps to improve the crew’s awareness of their ship’s performance and supports environmental compliance.

The system enables informed decision making by both crew and onshore teams and potentially assists customers in the reduction of energy usage, fuel consumption and operating costs. Energy Management 2.0 offers a greatly enhanced ability to improve the performance of an individual vessel or a fleet. The system provides details on fuel consumption and overall energy efficiency levels benchmarked against historical performance, allowing the crew to exploit opportunities to minimise fuel usage and reduce emissions.

Data is collected from the ship’s control system and a multitude of sensors on the vessel, logged at frequent intervals and processed in real time. Data sources include the engines, propulsion system, automation system, deck machinery and other equipment. Selected information is displayed graphically using a clear, focused and uncluttered design that draws the crew’s attention immediately to key elements.

The system provides vessel efficiency and performance information that enables the ship to comply with IMO and EU regulations (Marpol/ SEEMP/ EEOI/ MRV). It eases the regulatory process via automated logging of data and extraction for verification and reporting. The system is designed with future regulations and reporting in mind.

Key features

  • Allows customers to reduce energy usage, fuel consumption and operating costs
  • Helps improve crew awareness of their ship’s performance
  • Provides a valuable tool for comparing performance across the fleet
  • Supports regulatory compliance
  • Customisable Key Performance Indicators
  • Improves the performance of specific vessels through the propagation of best operating practices from historical data
  • Introduces healthy vessel-to-vessel benchmarking and competition
  • Highly customisable and can be configured to meet specific customer needs across a wide range of vessels

Connectivity and security

All the data collected is encrypted before being transmitted on to a KONGSBERG-hosted web portal onshore, where more detailed analysis can be carried out. Our cloud based portal enables fleet managers and operators to compare actual performance data with historical benchmarks, as well as evaluating trending over chosen time periods.

Performance indicators and baseline analysis create potential for further improvement, and helps enable a data-driven performance management and decision-making approach across fleet management operations.

We take security very seriously, and uses state of the art encryption algorithms with strong keys. To reduce the band width utilisation, smart compression algorithms are used before transmitting the data to shore.
