What did we do?

IoT system reduces CO2 emissions through on-shore fleet overview and decision recommendation for vessels

Problem

With the largest fleet in the world Maersk is the leading provider of ocean container transportIn 2014 Maersk set out to create a new system for data capture and vessel fuel consumption overview to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, and supporting their new and ambitious target of having net-zero CO2 emissions from operations by 2050. This is done by creating a basis for more detailed analysis and recommendations for senior officers as to how they can reduce fuel on their voyagesFurthermore to create an on-shore live overview of fuel consumption within and across vessel classes and to ultimately provide central feedback and recommendations for each vessel.

Solution

CIM was asked to provide a proof of concept on a fuel surveillance system that was to initially run on only a few vessels. The built system’s backbone was the collection and normalization of vessel data, the robust connectivity from vessels at sea back to shore-based 3-tier front end – server – database system hosted in Azure. 

The concept showed very promising and over the last years we have contributed to a fully-fledged system which includes: 

  • Fully integrated IoT system from vessel data acquisition systems over connectivity systems to Azure hosted data, business logic, presentation, and decision recommendation  
  • Automated data collection software releases can be pushed to all vessels across the Maersk fleet 
  • Shared reality of fuel consumption on-shore and at the vessel 
  • Performance and quality control measurements within and across vessel classes  
  • Collaboration tool for sea and shore functions comparing best in class performance

Result

As a result of this projectMaersk operates a fully integrated IoT system from vessel data acquisition systems over connectivity systems to Azure hosted data, business logic, presentation, and decision recommendation. This has led to a significant reduction in fuel consumption and therebCO2 footprint, as well as competitiveness of Maersk
