Base load (i.e. non propulsion related energy ) and boiler consumption can be efficiently monitored and managed through setting baselines and benchmarking. It all relates to energy awareness onboard the vessels. Some crews are very aware of their electrical (and steam) consumption, saving everywhere they see an opportunity. However, for some it is not part of their daily routine to save where possible.
Our approach is to set a (realistic) target for Base Load and Boiler consumption, and then monitor all vessel compared to the target. This approach reveals if the vessels consume as expected, or if there are certain vessels in the fleet that sticks out.
