Container vessels are vital tools of modern international trade, carrying about 90% of non-bulk cargoes worldwide. Since emerging in the mid-20th century, the development of container vessels has been driven by the need to improve operational efficiency. Containerization revolutionised cargo transport by reducing the handling times at the port. Todays full-sized modern container ships rival crude oil and bulk carriers as the largest commercial vessels on the ocean, with a loading capacity of more than 21,000 TEU. In addition to maximizing the load capacity, ship designers focus on increasing the fuel and energy efficiency of these vessels.

To better monitor and control fuel and energy efficiency, electronic fuel management and engine performance monitoring systems are valuable tools.

The KROHNE EcoMATE™ electronic fuel management system and Coriolis mass flowmeters enables the crew and ship owner to keep track of and report on both fuel consumption and all corresponding emissions, in accordance with the new regulations from the EU and IMO. EcoMATE™ also allows separate monitoring of loading and offloading operations, including any bunkering transactions. Consumption, emissions data and bunkering history are accessible from shore office through remote cloud functionality, allowing both the crew and ship owner. a complete overview.

KROHNE also manufacture a wide range of electromagnetic flowmeters suitable for other flow instrumentation on board, such as in ballast water treatment systems, exhaust gas cleaners (scrubbers) water/oil separators or fresh water production systems.
