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.
