Fuel consumption represents a major cost in the marine industry. Monitoring and collecting accurate fuel consumption data for a vessel or fleet is key to identifying inefficiencies and reducing overall fuel consumption.
Ship Performance Monitor (SPM) is a highly adaptable monitoring software, designed to help manage and improve the ship and fleet efficiencies. An adaptable reporting system providing data from all monitored ship sub-systems. SPM supports the implementation of Ship Energy Efficiency Monitoring Plan (SEEMP).

SPM accumulate power consumption for all major consumers on-board. Fuel flow is accumulated with flowmeters. To accumulate the fuel flow,
accurate flow meters are preferred. If flow meters are inaccurate or nonexistent, SPM may calculate the fuel flow from the engine load.
Energy efficiency is linked to the ship’s fuel consumption and the ships emissions. Maritime transport is the most energy efficient in means of transporting goods per ton-mile. At the same time shipping emission is increasing rapidly. SPM is monitoring ship and fleet performance, enabling the operators to measure fuel consumption and emission over time.
