DIGITAL TWIN BASED PLATFORM
At the core of Syroco EfficientShip, a digital twin is a virtual representation of a real-world ship, powered by artificial intelligence, data and IoT.
The digital twin represents the physics and data-driven behaviour of the ship. It sails in parallel with the actual ship, tracking actual and expected performance.
Using a digital twin provides the maximum level of accuracy and control over all efficiency parameters. It helps save fuel, reduce emissions and achieve compliance.MORE ON DIGITAL TWINS
Main Platform Capabilities
EfficientShip uses AI-powered optimisation algorithms that run the digital twin on a broad spectrum of route variations, based on user-selected objectives and constraints. The route is delivered in real-time to the crew and is recalculated every time conditions change.
The digital twin sails alongside the ship on the selected routing, computing in real-time the best operating parameters. This ensures that the ship is always operating in optimum configuration to reduce fuel consumption while following route and schedule.
EfficientShip collects vessel operating parameters and IoT data in real-time during each voyage. It provides data in real-time to the crew and produces detailed voyage reports with analysis of operations and savings.
AI-BASED WEATHER ROUTING
EfficientShip uses artificial intelligence to select the most optimised routes: genetic algorithms run virtually the digital twin on 100,000+ variations of routes, using most accurate weather observation and forecast data based on satellite measurements. The algorithms use multi-objectives such as arrival time, fuel consumption and emissions and allow for specific operating constraints.
INTUITIVE ON-BOARD INTERFACE
Used by the crew, the user interface provides exact routing details and voyage optimisation parameters that are computed in real-time by the digital twin. In addition to accurate fuel savings, detailed weather information for the entire voyage is also displayed, helping the crew understand the route selection and analyse the impact of any decision on fuel consumption and emissions.
FUEL CONSUMPTION & EMISSIONS
The digital twin sails virtually on any maritime route, applying weather and sea conditions, and computes precisely the quantity of fuel consumed by the ship during each route segment.
Syroco EfficientShip continuously monitors fuel and energy consumption and computes actual savings, in real time.
REAL-TIME VOYAGE OPTIMISATION
Syroco EfficientShip continuously monitors environmental conditions and determines the optimal configuration of the ship to operate according to set objectives, including route and speed profile. The on-board user interface provides actionable recommendations to the crew that includes course, speed, engine and propeller settings, rudder and stabilisers, trim and ballasts, etc.
For ships powered by more than one energy source, including wind assistance, Syroco EfficientShip produces an energy mix profile and device configuration based on optimal use of all propulsion devices.
MULTI-OBJECTIVE WEATHER ROUTING
Syroco EfficientShip virtually sails digital twins on a broad spectrum of routes, combining advanced space-powered weather forecasting and smart navigable routes to optimise route selection.
Analysing a Pareto front of thousands of voyage options with selectable objectives, EfficientShip delivers multi-objective optimisation with targets that include minimum fuel, just-in-time arrival, best time charter equivalent, flexible departure and arrival time windows, and more.
WIND PROPULSION TECHNOLOGIES BENCHMARKING
Syroco EfficientShip builds a digital twin of the ship (existing or projected) and adds to that twin any propulsion device that is being considered: rigid or reefable sails, inflatable or asymmetric wings, kites, rotors, aspirated profiles, etc.
Based on historic weather and sea conditions on maritime routes on which the ship is expected to operate, Syroco EfficientShip runs the digital twin in all possible configurations and operating conditions and produces advanced reports comparing the different options.
