How We Differentiate
To ensure the vessel is operated efficiently across a range of speeds and conditions a dynamic collection of best efficiency points is required. Based on that concept, our artificial intelligence calculates the optimum propulsion settings at any time and under any operational conditions. More specifically we deliver the optimum RPM and propeller pitch for a specific navigator chosen speed – ensuring a minimum of fuel consumption. And thanks to our intelligent learning algorithm the accuracy of the system keeps improving during the life of the vessel – improving fuel and CO2 savings.
See illustration on the right how fuel consumption is reduced (red line) with Frugal compared to standard engine control (blue line).
From analysis to fast track implementation
Before any investment we offer specific analysis of the vessel operation to verify potential for savings. We often use sea-trials as part of the analysis.
Upon verified savings the project scope is defined and investment agreed.
In a team of Frugal technicians and our marine technology partners the solution is designed and configured.
The installation process requires minimal operational interference – typically fully installed after scheduling a 1 day stay at pier.
