USC Barnkrug implements Aquametro solutions for efficient EEXI & CII compliance

Aquametro was contracted to supply shaft power meters and SHaPoLi monitoring systems for four vessels managed by USC Barnkrug.

The four container ships Elbfeeder, Elbtrader, Elbspirit and Elbcarrier have each been equipped with Aquametro’s Shaft Power Meter (SPM) and SHaPoLi monitoring systems.

Using sha­ft power measurement & sha­ft power limitation is an easy and cost-effective solution to meet the EEXI requirements. The Shaft Power Meter (SPM) is the key component for measuring ship performance and fuel/propulsion efficiency.

The system is easy to install and requires no el­ectronic parts on the shaft. The system operates absolutely contact-free.
The SPM measures the shaft rpm, shaft torque and shaft power. Based on these values the SHaPoLi Monitoring Display, that is installed on the bridge, monitors the shaft power limit and in case of exceedance gives a visual and an acoustic signal. All data, necessary to comply with Resolution MEPC.335(76), is automatically recorded in a tamper-proof manner.

The Aquametro Oil & Marine Shaft Power Meter and SHaPoLi Monitoring System are Type Approved by DNV.

Our measurement technology, including flowmeters and shaft power meters, has also been in successful operation on USC Barnkurg-managed container ships NCL Svelgen and NCL Salten for several years.

These technologies allow for precise measurement of fuel consumption and propulsion power, to enhance the vessels’ operational efficiency and monitoring capabilities.
