Fuel consumption record, control of vessel systems and mechanisms state

Effective and fast-payback solutions for equipage of river and sea vessels with control and management systems.

Composition and principle of operation

The solution consists of control and measuring equipment intended for registering operation parameters and state of vessel systems and mechanisms and client-server platform BoatWatch and processing. Storage and presentation of information.

The scale and the variant of implementation are determined by the requirements and tasks, set by the customer.

Measurement of parameters
Gathering of information
Data presentation

Sensors settled on the vessel measure necessary parameters of operation and stat of vessel systems and mechanisms.

The vessel crew receives access to information gathered by the information controller about current sate and operation of vessel systems through the control panel.

The on-board controller gathers information from sensors and satellites and transmits it to the server using mobile and satellite communication.

The system user working on the shore receives remote access to the server data through the PC with Internet connection to analyze, control and make decisions.

Current tasks

  • Full information about location, heading and speed of vessels in real time.
  • Navigation plotting and calculation of distances.
  • Control of time schedule and march route observation.
  • Monitoring of state of vessel's fuel users and equipment.
  • Remote control of vessel systems.
  • Accurate metering of consumed fuel.
  • Control of bunkerage.
  • Control of carried cargo.
  • Operational response to possible contingency situations.
  • Control and planning of crew activity.
  • Recording and planning of works connected with maintenance and repair of units and aggregates.
  • Automated keeping of electronic vessel documents.
  • Gathering of statistics about activity of vessels.
  • External and internal video surveillance.


  • Cost reduction for fuel and transport operation.
  • Optimization of fuel consumption norms.
  • Decrease of commercial losses resulted from errors in measuring of fuel amount.
  • Decrease of maintenance cost for vessel equipment, increase of life cycles.
  • Increase of efficiency of logistics operations and vessel usage.
  • Reduction of idle periods.
  • Increase of safety of transport, cargoes and crews.
  • Increase of crew labor productivity, reinforcement of labor discipline.
  • Minimization of human factor impact on the efficiency of enterprise activity.
  • Growth of business profitability and competitive ability.


Control and measuring equipment installed during implementation of management and control systems was inspected by Russian and international certification bodies and registered in the State Register of Measuring Devices. The devices are characterized by high accuracy of indication, reliability in operation and insensibility to external conditions.

Scheme of vessel equipage

The presented scheme is one of many variants of vessel equipage.

Controlled parameters

  • engine operation time;
  • fuel actual flow;
  • amount (volume, weight) of accepted (issued) fuel;
  • fuel density;
  • fuel temperature;
  • pump capacity;
  • shaft speed;
  • coolant temperature;
  • exhaust gas temperature;
  • fuel level in the tank;
  • fuel pressure in the tank (design fuel level);
  • uel combustion pressure in the cylinders;
  • oil pressure in the engine;
  • machine hours;
  • oxygen concentration in the exit gases at the engine output;
  • generator power, current (collateral calculation of fuel consumption and power-on period);
  • temperature of refrigeration plant chambers;
  • work modes of vessel system and mechanisms.

Information acquisition about operation and state of vessel systems may be realized using direct measurements and by calculation of indirect measures.

Efficiency in numbers

Equipage with fuel consumption control in the vessel boiler at he tanker of type "Nefterudovoz"

Boiler work time within one navigation (hours):

  • boiler work time, registered manually;
  • actual work time of boiler, registered by the system.

Total boiler work time per one navigation

Fuel consumption by the boiler within one navigation (liters):

  • fuel consumption by the boiler with the norm of 54 l/hour and manual registration of work time;
  • actual fuel consumption by the boiler, registered by the system.

Total fuel consumption by the boiler per one navigation

Economy for one navigation in case of equipage of the vessel boiler
