SKF EcoMode software

SKF EcoMode panel
The SKF EcoMode software optimizes the use of retractable and non-retractable fin stabilizers based on weather conditions and retrospective ship’s movement analyses. The software allows up to three additional modes of fin stabilizer operation, each designed to optimize a vessel’s energy consumption according to prevailing sea conditions.
  • For retractable fin stabilizers the software provides three additional modes of fin stabilizer operation – “passive”, “single-fin-operation” and ”angle reduction”
  • For non-retractable fin stabilizers the software provides two additional modes of fin stabilizer operation – “passive” and ”angle reduction”
  • Each mode helps to ensure a safe operation and optimised energy efficiency commensurate with sea conditions
  • Control panel with new energy cockpit on the bridge and in the engine room
  • Individually adaptable EcoMode, for example the crew has the option to accept or decline the software's recommendations, activation of new operation modes immediately after acceptance of the recommendation by the crew
  • Possible reduction of a ship’s fuel consumption by up to 2 % while the fin stabilizers are in use
  • No risk: SKF is Original Equipment Manufacturer, excellent expertise regarding stress limits of fin stabilizers
  • Available for new builds and as a retrofit solution for existing SKF retractable and non-retractable fin stabilizers as well as third party stabilizing systems
