UK based Datum Electronics will supply Oldendorff Carriers with shaft power meter systems to help reduce its carbon footprint and improve technical and operational efficiency.

The new systems are designed to seamlessly integrate with various existing ship performance monitoring systems and are an important step for the operator to optimise fuel consumption and reduce emissions.

“By working continuously on our research and development, whilst also paying attention to changing Marine market demands, we have produced a product that is at the leading edge of design in flexibility and technology,” said Paul Lynch, commercial sales manager at Datum Electronics.

“We provide not only a Torsion meters, but also a complete package which can be easily integrated into ship performance monitoring systems, from various providers all over the world.”

Eco strategy

The Oldendorff fleet is now comprised of over 90% of environmentally friendly vessels with the largest emissions drive coming from the operator implementing fleet and ship performance monitoring systems.

Datum’s Ship Torsion Meters have been specifically designed for commercial vessels with single or multiple shaft installations to provide ongoing power monitoring data on ships for fuel economy and equipment maintenance scheduling programmes.

The system gives real time measurements of torque, power, thrust and dynamic torque, which helps the ship monitoring system meet the SEEMP requirements.

As well as supplying shaft power torque meters, Datum Electronics will perform system installations and internal crew training, through its established global network of competent service providers.
