Blueflow promotes eco-driving on bi-directional ferry
Being the only lifeline to the mainland, the bidirectional ferry Mjølner plays an essential role in the island community on the beautiful Danish island Fur.
“In the beginning, I was not convinced that implementing Blueflow could make much of a difference as the crossing only takes five minutes, but Per Ole Sørensen convinced us that we should try the system”
”I am interested in sailing economical and reducing fuel consumption as much as possible but without affecting the timetable. Blueflow is very visual and easy to use, and when I am sailing, I can follow my real-time fuel consumption and the fuel consumption from the previous crossing on the Blueflow screen. That way, I can see whether to speed up or not, and these two figures control my manoeuvring behaviour”
Hydrogen conversion project profits from Blueflow data
Blueflow is not only a useful tool for bringing down fuel consumption. Right now, the Danish hydrogen conversion project ’On hydrogen across the fjord’ is investigating in whether Mjølner can be rebuilt to sail on hydrogen and through Blueflow they have access to a countless number of data to be used for calculations.
”The project group has access to all Mjølner’s fuel consumption data in Blueflow, and these data is used to calculate how much hydrogen will be required compared to Mjølner’s current fuel consumption.”, explains Anne-Mette Mortensen.
