In the overall quest for improving a vessel’s fuel efficiency it is necessary to measure and analyze the vessel’s overall baseline performance. With the technology of Hydro-Box and BlueFlow it is now possible to establish the necessary baselines and make all the improvements while measuring and calculating the results. Not only can adding Hydro-Box measure vessel operations, the operator’s effect on the vessel can also be observed. Hydro-Box also allows for the measurement of the effectiveness of fuel and oil additives and the efficiency of propellers and bottom paints. Commercial vessels such as towboats and fishing trawlers can evaluate fuel consumption to their tow and conditions.
