FCM

Automated Fuel Consumption Metering and Ship Efficiency Monitoring System

THE WAY TO SAVE AND REDUCE EMISSIONS!

FCM SYSTEMS - An universal tool that allows the crew and operators of vessels to easily and automatically control bunkering, fuel consumption by the ship and its fuel level in tanks. Our systems are designed both for monitoring the efficiency of the vessel as a whole, and for automatically collecting the necessary data on fuel consumption for the preparation of MRV reporting. The purpose of this development is to make the work of a shipping company more efficient and to simplify the work of all its services.

Our solution allows you to identify increased fuel and energy consumption on board, as well as control CO2 emissions

This is a comprehensive solution that helps the shipowner to solve problems aimed at meeting the requirements of the IMO. In particular, the collection of information for the maintenance and transmission of MRV reporting and data for SEEMP. Solving these problems, our product additionally provides the shipowner with many useful functions.

AUTOMATION OF DATA EXCHANGE WITH EU-MRV AND SEEMP SYSTEMS

EU-MRV reporting is essential for the shipping industry to monitor greenhouse gas emissions.

The reduction can be achieved with the help of technical and operational adjustments to the operation of ship systems and mechanisms.

SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan)

One of the most promising instruments for the shipowner to improve the energy efficiency of ship operation is SEEMP.

One area for SEEMP improvement is fuel efficiency

Our systems help build EEXI
(Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index)

Monitoring the amount of CO2 exhaust gases, comparing with fuel consumption, processing and transmitting data to the office.
