The Measure Of A Company

Kral supplies fuel consumption measurement system to DFDS Seaways

Posted on October 22, 2012

Kral has supplied its fuel consumption measurement system to Denmark-based DFDS Seaways for three of its RO-PAX ships: Dover Seaways, Delft Seaways and Dunkerque Seaways.

On each ship, the measuring systems monitor the fuel consumption of all four main motors, the power generation units and the two burners, and feature a local Kral BEM 500 electronic indication unit for each measurement system.

The information of all nine consumption measuring systems is transferred to the bridge and displayed by the Kral BEM 800 on one display. Kral supplied 27 fuel consumption measuring systems to DFDS Seaways.

The fuel consumption systems facilitate the comparison between the ships and thus optimization of the fleet consumption, Kral said. During the transition phase from heavy oil to distillates, the system helps observe the specified temperature gradient of the engine manufacturers.
