ABB Ability™ OptimE is a fully automated marine software toolset to optimize the toe angle of ABB’s Azipod® Propulsion, leading to energy efficiency and reduced emissions. This software empowers shipowners and ship operators with a smarter utilization of the propulsion power by extending the fuel savings of Azipod® Propulsion, which on its own have saved about 1,000,000 accumulated tons of fuel and is contributing to reduce the maritime carbon footprint.
The OptimE system is based on the finding that further fuel consumption savings can be achieved by dynamically optimizing the toe (steering) angle of the Azipod® units, in addition to the static angle optimization already performed at the vessels’ design stage. The system continuously adjusts the toe angle towards the most optimum inflow depending on the relevant operational and environmental conditions.
