Going Green in the Blue EconomyHow lower costs at sea and in port won’t cost the Earth

Reading time: 2 minutes

There is an urgent, imperative need at large in the world today and every twenty-first century business knows it. At its heart there is a breathtakingly simple idea: Everyone knows we need to look after our environment more carefully than perhaps we have so far.

Like most simple ideas, of course, the solutions can seem quite complicated. Surely restricting our impact, reining in our footprint has associated costs? We all want to go green, but we don’t want to hurt the blue economy.

It need not be a choice between doing the right thing and looking after your stakeholders. There’s a lot you can do to serve both. With little or no capital expenditure, for example, you can install Telenor Maritime’s Maritime Mesh Network radio on your bridge, hook it up to your existing instrumentation and systems and get instant feedback on fuel consumption, leading to more efficient vessel routing.

Predictive maintenance capability

The system is also predictive maintenance capable – you can feed in data from condition monitoring (CM) sensors attached to mechanical equipment programmed to watch out for changes in temperature, pressure, torque, and vibration that can predict impending breakdown. Apart from avoiding the serious safety implications of equipment failure at sea, predictive maintenance allows early interventions to be made, parts to be ordered and delivered to the next port of call, reducing downtime, and saving money. The wear on connected parts will also be reduced, saving natural resources, and further reducing the fleet’s carbon footprint.

All of this becomes possible when vessels and their instrumentation as well as their onboard systems and sensors become part of a new Maritime Internet of Things. In order to connect us better to our planet and to monetize better the financial connections we make, the Maritime Internet of Things will help us to manage the subtle connections between items of mechanical equipment that have such a bearing on the wider picture.

Saving the Earth also saves you money. The more you save, the better your margins. The blue economy going green? Now that’s simple.
