The Swedish ferry company has installed its in-house developed Artificial Intelligence (AI) fuel-saving solution on Stena Nordica, plying between Gdynia and Karlskrona.
Fuel Pilot is a decision-making support tool that combines data from different sources - including wave, current, wind, depth, given vessel's specifics, and timetable - to propose the optimal speed to cut fuel consumption, hence emissions.
"We are working towards reducing fuel consumption onboard our existing ships while at the same time developing future technology, vessels, and fuels. It is a shining example of how we can combine modern AI technology with the huge nautical competence our seafarers have to jointly reduce our environmental impact," Erik Lewenhaupt, Group Head of Sustainability, Stena Line, commented.
The company intends to reduce its carbon footprint by 30% by 2030, making its operations fossil-free by 2050 at the latest.
