Stability and energy efficency in fishing ships 

Janus Systems, Ltd, launches a new INTEGRAL SYSTEM FOR THE SAFETY OF FISHING, that calculates the static stability for the intact vessel, taking into account meteorological factors. It is connected to sensors along the ship so it is able to detect real time the ships anomalies, and provide effective solutions to correct them. Also contains a series of modules that detect and alert of flooding and excessive listing and activate perimeter airbags to complement the vessel´s floatability and stability reserve, thus avoiding or at least delaying sinking. 


It allows to reduce fuel consumption up to 7%, amortizing over a short time the cost of the system

Although it has been proven in two ships, however it depends on the area by where it sails and of the type of boat. Not the same the Atlantic stormy (such as the North Sea) that the placid Mediterranean, or even between areas of the Atlantic (as the case of the Gulf of Guinea). The basic principle is that the system allows to the captain learn statistically the impact of the dynamic trim of the boat, taking into account the design trim of the vessel. If a ship not adjusts his trim in a relatively long passage, a few degrees in the trim will have a significant difference in fuel consumption. In our case, the Janus System indicates at all times to optimize fuel consumption which is the trim, speed, and navigation path that are more optimal. Also check the stability of the vessel before breaking waves, parametric resonance, following seas, etc.
