Energy management systems help La Méridionale to cut fuel

French ferry operator La Méridionale is progressing with the digitalisation of its fleet in partnership with Eniram, a Wärtsilä company, having implemented Eniram’s range of energy management technology to more efficiently use its resources and reduce its impact on the environment.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ‘Piana’, a ro-pax ferry that travels between Marseille and Corsica, was equipped with Eniram Trim and Speed systems in April 2017. An evaluation period for the systems ended in summer 2018, showing annualised fuel savings of around 2 per cent, enabling a payback on the investment made in just two years.

The reduction in fuel consumption also delivered a corresponding reduction in exhaust emissions.

“Performance is one of our core values. To develop our technological capability, we chose Wärtsilä’s Eniram energy management and optimisation technology,” said Christophe Seguinot, technical director, La Méridionale.

“Together with Wärtsilä, we were able to achieve tangible and sustainable savings, which have been accessed thanks to their advanced products, support and training. We will definitely scale these great results to our entire fleet while discovering new possibilities for utilising the data.”

La Méridionale operates from Marseille and runs a daily service to Corsica, as well as a once-weekly service to Sardinia, for both passengers and freight.{/mprestriction}
