Deep Sea Technologies on Tuesday (13 July) said it has collaborated with Seanergy’s Capesize vessels to achieve a reduction of fuel consumption of up to 12%, with average fuel savings of 8%, as recorded over a series of voyages during the first four months of 2021.
Seanergy and DeepSea have worked closely on the development of Pythia with the aim to build a unique performance routing tool tailored to the needs of top-tier shipping companies.
Pythia is an industry-first next generation weather routing and voyage optimisation platform which uses AI-based performance models – based on highly detailed real-time data – to analyse 19 different parameters.
The AI models accurately track how a vessel performs over time under any conditions, including those related to the weather and the state of the vessel – such as the fouling levels.
As a result of using real-time data, Pythia obtains a highly accurate understanding of the vessel and develops dynamic, tailor-made performance models for each ship, which are then used to determine the optimum routes, speeds, and trims for minimum fuel consumption.
This collaboration redefines fleet management across the global shipping industry, ushering in a new era where shipowners can accurately calculate the real fuel savings and reduction of emissions for each voyage.
The approach also reduces fuel costs for charterers and other bunker bill payers, while accelerating the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within the shipping industry.

Webinar will offer delegates insights on the prevention of operational issues when using VLSFOs, along with an update on biofuels and bunker fuel quality trends for 2021 and its forecast for the current year.
Heating VLSFOs to prevent cold flow issues causes issues related to distillate ageing, and there is a gentle balance to be maintained when handling the product.
Research into n-paraffin distribution of VLSFOs has shown that they not only differ from MGO, but significantly differ from each other as well, states bulletin.
Bunker Holding and Dan-Bunkering have decided not to appeal the city court ruling in the case where the companies were on trial for breaching EU sanctions against Syria, states USTC.
Poll shows market participants think Singapore’s future as a bunkering hub in the near term will be impacted most by growth in alternative bunker fuels and intensifying competition from other ports in Asia.
‘We will now take the necessary time to consider and evaluate the verdict and the premises of the verdict thoroughly before making any decision of whether to appeal to a higher court,’ informs company.
