OSV Operator Cuts Consumption

Stena Line

Stena Line Test Drives AI, Saves Fuel

Stena Lines completed a pilot project using arti? cial intel- ligence (AI) technology to predict the most fuel-ef? cient way to operate a vessel, the Stena Scandinavica on the

Gothenburg – Kiel route, a technology test which report- edly helped to reduced fuel consumption 2 to 3 percent.

As fuel represents nearly 20 percent of Stena Line’s op- erating costs, even a low single digit fuel savings percent- age yields big dividends, and the company plans to deploy the technology on additional vessels. The software is now named Stena Fuel Pilot and will be installed on ? ve more

Stena Line vessels during the autumn, with the ambition to do a complete ? eet wide roll-out on all 37 vessels in

Europe during 2020. Working side by side in this project,
