fuel management is a approach to monitoring, and fuel usage a boat ship. with goals of fuel usage, operational efficiency, improving fleet oversight. MFM grown in due to rising costs marine fuel 1 ] increased governmental to reduce pollution generated the world’s [ 2 [ 3 [ 4

A modern fuel management would help monitoring fuel fuel transfers, events and be configured sound an alarm when fuel tanks lead to spill.

Throttle [ edit

Vessel operators the most over fuel by the they use engine(s) throttle. current, hull load, and system health all impact burn both or negatively. operators choose lower engine and hence speed, in attempt to fuel. However, RPM and speed alone not indicative total fuel so arbitrarily engine speed not guarantee savings. One do the calculations on the propulsion is operating existing changing and then that to consumption. Simply engine RPM not guarantee optimum vessel setting based conditions. Some fuel management are designed perform these while underway make recommendations the vessel
