Stay ahead with the hardware and software that propels your energy management strategy
Marorka On-board is a maritime energy management and operational performance system. That means it can help you monitor your ship’s performance, optimize fuel consumption and reduce emissions. Located on-board the vessel, it equips you with energy system monitoring, electronic measurement logging, simulation-based decision support and also extensive energy and performance analysis.
Marorka Onboard enables monitoring and improvement of energy management efficiency and operational performance. It achieves that by collecting a wide range of on-board measurements through a central server and data acquisition units. These components form the basic infrastructure for continuous real-time monitoring and improvement. Furthermore the crew can access the system anywhere on the ship’s network through dedicated workstations, monitoring units or remote client software.
Marorka Onboard transmits data to Marorka Online (a cloud-based fleet performance reporting system). It therefore provides the shore-based personnel with access to full fleet performance data.
You can extend Marorka Onboard, at any time, with additional applications. Such applications can use computer models of the ship’s hull and energy systems. As a result they can provide real-time recommendations about how to improve operational performance and fuel consumption.
The hardware can endure the harsh conditions aboard ships. We deliver Marorka Onboard with all the connectors and controllers needed to integrate with meters and networks.
Reliable collection of accurate and detailed performance data is the foundation for improving a ship’s performance.
Reliable data is essential to determine the current operating status. It is also relevant in monitoring performance.
Marorka Onboard provides core functionality covering specific areas for energy management improvements. This functionality can also be extended with additional applications. Therefore products can be selected on a case-by-case basis, thus maximizing return on investment. In addition, if your ship is connected to the Internet, Marorka Onboard takes care of sending your data to Marorka Online.
Machinery identifies ways to improve the operation of all on-board machinery systems. Optimizations handled by this application focuse on the following tasks:
Fuel manager provides an up-to-date reading of the remaining-on-board (ROB) status. In addition it also generates emission reports and maintains a consumption balance audit record between fuel added and actual measured consumption. Key features include:
An energy efficient voyage can bring significant savings in fuel costs. Marorka Voyages identifies speed profiles that result in minimized voyage costs for given routes and ETAs. As a result voyage planning is simpler and voyages are more economical.
Marorka Voyages enables energy efficient voyage planning based on simulations, modelling and ocean forecasts. In addition, that maximizes energy efficiency while making sea passages. As a result it also enables minimizing fuel consumption and costs for the voyage, as well as harmful emissions.
The application optimizes planning by continuously calculating the most efficient speed of the ship during the sea passage. Hence the ship’s officers can then use the proposed speed profile to reduce fuel consumption.
Trim helps the bridge team reduce fuel consumption. It does that by providing recommendations on the optimal trim that will lead to minimized hull resistance. The application also enhances understanding of the relationship between trim, loading and propulsion energy consumption. The result is an overview of these important operational parameters and their effects on performance.
Applying the optimal trim can deliver significant fuel savings.
Optimization of dynamic trim
Monitoring of hull performance
Report management combines automatically logged operational data with manual entries on report forms. This is automatically done when registering information about the ship’s performance and other operations. Consequently it reduces manual input and limits the errors that are inevitable while creating reports.
The information in submitted reports can then be used on-board or sent to Marorka Online for further analysis.
Logged data always goes through a process of quality control. That is performed before Marorka Onboard stores the data permanently in the platform database. The accuracy and precision of measurements are important factors to consider. Therefore all the data used by Marorka Onboard to calculate the ship’s performance and energy management is quality checked. Most noteworthy, the Marorka Onboard platform has built-in features to detect missing values and to filter outliers and corrupted values.
Data management includes powerful analysis tools. These are used for graphically trending and comparing real-time operational values over a period of time. As a result the crew can locate focus areas for improving energy efficiency and for saving fuel.
Marorka Online is a secure web application which collects operational data from Marorka Onboard servers. As a result it can deliver a valuable overview of your fleet’s fuel use, performance and emissions. Marorka Online inspires employees to focus on fleet performance. Therefore it is the ideal platform for visualizing fleet data and facilitates collaboration between ship and shore.
Marorka Online provides the capability to continuously monitor fleet performance. Hence it allows managers to provide crews with additional support in making decisions that improve energy management. As a result it leads to reduced OPEX costs and increased asset value.
Transparent Ship Management
Marorka Wallboard is a web add-on application for Marorka Online. First of all, the application is ideal to be displayed on a big TV monitor in management offices. Furthermore, it provides a platform for monitoring vessel and fleet performance in real-time. Finally, the objective with Marorka Wallboard is to increases transparency, raise awareness for energy management and provide a good way to actively monitor data quality from the start of Marorka projects.
Marorka Online is, most relevant, always ON and therefore you can access your data from anywhere in the world, at any time, as long as you have an Internet connection and a browser.
Marorka Online provides interactive reports. These cover propulsion, machinery, operational profile and emissions for a single ship or an entire fleet. In addition, it also includes voyage reports and a flexible data dashboard, hence facilitating analysis of all measurements sent from ship to shore.
Visualize speed-consumption and speed-power data and create baselines based on statistical fits. Compare performance between time periods for the same vessel or between vessels in the same class. Marorka Online provides fleet and voyage overviews of all Marorka applications fitted on your vessels. Furthermore, track how closely crews are following recommendations and monitor progress of potential savings.
Marorka Online provides a fleet overview of manually reported consumption, bunkering amounts and remaining on board (ROB) status from Marorka Onboard. In addition, the application automatically issues warnings if there is a difference between measured and manually reported consumption.
MARORKA REPORTING is an application that helps in tracking and improving vessels energy management. It works on-board and allows crew to collect and store data in a range of reports.
Marorka Reporting divides each voyage into typical sections (maneuvering, sea passage, canal passage, etc.). It therefore allows for appropriate reporting logic in each case. Furthermore, data is transmitted from the vessel to shore as each report is submitted and stored in a secure data center. Finally, Marorka Reporting provides a framework for valuable performance analysis.
An improved flow of information between ship and shore helps to find the most efficient way to operate ships based on accurate data. Hence, knowing the vessel’s performance leads to increased energy efficiency.
Performance optimization and effective energy management are long-term operations. Therefore data must be collected for several months so that a ship’s fuel consumption can be analysed at different speeds and in different conditions. Finally, best results will be obtained with continuous communication and consultation between ship and shore.
Marorka Reporting provides a foundation for online fleet performance monitoring, which can lead to MRV compliance.
