BOSS™ Economiser (ECO)

BOSS™ Economiser (ECO)

BOSS™ ECO continuously calculates and shows the steering behaviour in relation to the steering movements and rudder angles, aligned to the actual sailing situation. It measures and displays the following: rudder angles, CO2 emissions, fuel consumption per litre or kilometre, speed, rate of turn (ROT) and steering efficiency indicator (SEI). By giving insight into these measurements, it allows the captain to be more conscious of sailing behaviour, which can lead to considerable fuel savings. Preliminary practice results show fuel savings of approximately 12%.

In addition, BOSS™ ECO system can save its data in a trip registration sheet with the BOSS™ Data Logging Function (DLF) application. The data, which is collected per voyage, will be saved in an overview where you can directly compare your steering behaviour and efficiency. It is possible to send the data overview via e-mail, to save it or to print it.

Manoeuvring is necessary on inland waterways. Every rudder movement creates extra ship resistance and by preventing excessive steering corrections you can improve your transport performance (EOI). It is proven that, once the BOSS™ ECO application is used according to its functions, fuel savings up to 20% can be achieved.

BOSS™ ECO is available in English, Dutch or German. If not already present, DMC additionally supplies an accurate fuel sensor.
