Introduced in 2006, FuelTrax connects to various flow meters, sensors, and operating devices to report fuel transfers, tank levels, consumption, speed, and location to help a ship owner optimize performance across the fleet. Captains can use the data to help them check throttle settings for more economical operation based on current conditions. Maintenance crews can use actual engine run times or fuel usage to optimize maintenance schedules, decreasing maintenance costs and increasing vessel availability. Operations can examine fuel trends to compare routes, crews, and technologies and ultimately connect fuel consumption to the actual work performed by a vessel.
