fuel optimization with smarter algorithms and better weather data
Molflow is participating in a EU founded project called EONav to save fuel and reduce emissions from shipping. We are developing the system together with a group of companies; Offshore Monitoring, Global Maritime Services, Offshore Navigation, Color Line, Laurin Maritime and Chalmers University of Technology. The outcome of the project is a tool for shipowners and the team on the bridge to sail the most efficient route at sea. Depending on the circumstances at sea, wind, currents, waves EONav can save shipping companies around 4-7 % on fuelcosts by using this system. Briefly explained the system contains a weather model with fourteen day forecasts and a ship specific shipmodel to simulate the operations at sea. In the background lots of analysis and advanced algorithms are running to find an efficient route.
- we need your help!
We need your help to grow! Are you looking for a new job? If you think your knowledge would fit with ours, don't hesitate to get in touch. We need to increase our team with one or two members to meet the demand in our projects. If you are a good programmer with understanding of Linux services like databases and know techniques to build good and fast web-backends, you might find new challenges in our team?
Molflow is a small and dynamic company cooperating with science teams in several project to collect, process and compare data from complex sensors. For the moment we are building a route planning system for shipping where data from the Copernicus satellites is an important component. In another project we are cooperating with a research group at Chalmers University of Technology to build a tool to process, validate and disseminate data from the Odin satellite to the science community.
Molflow - keeping an eye on the Earth
Together with our partners at Chalmers University of Technolongy (Sweden) and National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (Japan) we are analysing the atmosphere to help build a sustainable world.
