MTCC-Asia Seminar on Pilot Projects Held

09/04/2018

On April 10, the day after the Qingming Festival, MTCC-Asia held a demonstration project seminar to optimize the results on Pilot Project 1 on “uptake of ship energy efficient technologies and operations by using trim optimization”and Pilot Project 2 on “fuel consumption data collection and reporting”.

Wang Xinbo, vice General Manager of China COSCO Shipping Technology Co. Ltd. and Zhang Jie, vice General Manager of 1st Division of China COSCO Shipping Technology Co. Ltd., CEO Lin Jie and CTO Zhang Shua from Gsoul NetTech participated in the seminar with other 5 MTCC-Asia staff members.

MTCC-Asia Head Ruan Wei recalled the history of MTCC-Asia, and expounded on the expected outcome of the two Pilot Projects and the roadmap.

MTCC-Asia Technical Officer, Zhou Feng illustrated the technological plan for two pilot projects with the results that have been completely and deeply discussed. He compared the frequency of data collection and data source, and considered that a report of fuel consumption or data of fixed frequency fitting to the requirements may lead to the reliability and big data computation.

MTCC-Asia Technical Officer, Wang Deling briefed the specification and format of data collection of IMO, which would be instrumental to future dissemination of technology in developing countries.

Mr. Wang Xinbo detailed the business scope of its company, in particular the maritime part. He demonstrated the self-developed system containing fuel consumption data, speed, trim, ship distribution. He appreciated the effort paid by MTCC-Asia on ship energy efficiency, pointing out that there is a common ground for the two sides to cooperate considering the research subject and objectives.

Mr. Zhang Jie, demonstrated the running of self-developed system, which may show the parameters of main engine. He also answered the questions concerning the data collection and system integration.

The seminar helped MTCC-Asia implement the two Pilot Projects in more effective and efficient manners under the framework of the Global MTCC Network.
