Wärtsilä hull and propeller performance optimised by Eniram
Wärtsilä Hull and Propeller Performance gives you visibility into your asset’s propulsion performance. The service allows you to optimize hull cleanings based on actual asset performance, as well as evaluate the impact of hydrodynamic investments like dry docks and retrofits.
All analysis is based on a unique model of your asset’s hydrodynamic characteristics combined with real-time information gathered by bridge and automation systems and sensors installed on the hull. This data is analyzed using advanced modeling that removes the impact of all extraneous variables to calculate one key performance indicator: how much propulsion power is needed to move the asset at a set speed in calm sea conditions?
With our service, you get a constant stream of propulsion power performance data that is comparable over time and across vessels – meaning you can track any decline in performance from hull fouling and evaluate if a cleaning is justified. You can also track changes in asset performance after hydrodynamic investments or evaluate optimum hull coatings by tracking performance differences between sister vessels.
