HMC, EcoTrim Reduces fuel consumption

What we offer

HMC developed an intelligent software tool (EcoTrim) that calculates the optimal trim for a vessel aimed at reducing fuel consumption. EcoTrim consists of a trim optimization module for all types of vessels. The hull of the vessel is being integrated within EcoTrim and is able to display the most efficient resistance curve by adjusting the trim based on the current loading condition. EcoTrim displays the optimal trim for a vessel in the respective loading conditions. In theory, under ideal conditions, fuel savings up to 5% can be achieved. In
reality, these savings will be around 2 - 3%. EcoTrim uses the integrated hullform of the vessel to determine the most optimal resistance curves with a certain trim to minimize the fuel loss due to a inefficient loading condition.

What we are looking for

We would like to find business partners who are interested in our services and products. Especially "EcoTrim". With the read out of data of vessels we could finetune EcoTrim to the max. We hope to bundle our expertise and knowledge with other companies in the maritime industry.

HMC, Stability and Loading Instrument CPC

What we offer

CPC 2.0 is HMC’s solution for class approved ship loading operations. This Cargo Planning Computer combines all obliged stability and strength parameters with an efficient and user friendly interface. Key aspect in the development of CPC 2.0 was to decrease the expert knowledge needed to operate the program. This was succeeded by renewing the interface and redesign the visual aspect of the program.

What we are looking for

Companies who are seeking for a competitive loading instrument for their ships/vessels.
