Eniram's systems collect, measure, and analyse real-time data for individual vessels and fleets, along with information about ocean conditions, to determine how ships generate and consume energy and how their performance affects fuel consumption and costs.
With that information, ship owners and operators can make informed decisions about efficiency measure like propeller changes, hull modifications, and antifouling measures.
