About 90% of world trade is transported by sea and the UN shipping agency, IMO aims to reduce the industry’s overall greenhouse gas emissions by 50% from 2008 levels by 2050. As per the latest study CO2 emissions grew to 1,056 million tonnes in 2018 versus 962 million tonnes in 2012. The non-profit International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) said the growth of shipping was outpacing efficiency improvements and by 2050 emissions from the industry were projected to be up to 130% higher than 2008 levels.
IMO has adopted mandatory measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from international shipping, under IMO’s pollution prevention treaty (MARPOL) - the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) mandatory for new ships, and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP).Alpha Ori is committed to meet and exceed IMO goals of reducing the industry’s overall greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 50% from 2008 levels by 2050 using cutting edge technologies. Through digitalization, AI enabled fuel efficiency optimizations, hull efficiency monitoring and prescriptive maintenance, AOT aims to minimize CO2 & other fuel related emissions in the shipping industry.
SMARTShip’s patented fuel saving module (TFOC) optimizes the total fuel oil consumption and reduces CO2 emission over a voyage on an AI enabled platform using multiple variables (vessel speed, design data, shop/sea trial performance, lay can for the voyage and weather parameters) to arrive at most desired outcomes. The commercial team and the ship master are provided with recommended speed between waypoints throughout the voyage in real time. Automated Hull Performance Monitoring (AHPM) app constantly checks hull performance characteristics of a vessel with respect to benchmarks and historical data. It allows users to check consumption at various speeds while taking into account current loading (draft) and hull condition, and provides cleaning recommendations for better fuel consumption. AssetAI module uses artificial intelligence algorithms and machine learning techniques to identify anomalies and detect potential failure early, thereby eliminating equipment breakdowns. With condition based maintenance, it’s possible to monitor equipment health and its remaining useful life for vessel’s reliable, safe and cost efficient operations (i.e. reduced spare part consumption, minimized inventory levels, energy efficient operations etc.) leading to a more sustainable future for shipping. At a fundamental level, Alpha Ori’s SMARTShip provides full transparency in carbon accountability with data integrity and quality with its digital age practices such as automatic digital data acquisition, real time visualization and decision support system. With SMARTShip’s fuel saving module the total fuel oil consumption over a voyage is reduced by 6 - 10% thereby minimizing CO2 emissions. It also calculates fuel related emissions and helps the master navigate through ECA zones with regulatory compliance. All records are kept for easy viewing for audits and regulatory submissions.
