Stolt Tankers to pilot Signol system to encourage fuel saving behaviour

Stolt Tankers has partnered with software provider Signol to launch a pilot project to reduce CO2 emissions from its fleet, an initiative involving the introduction of behavioural change techniques to improve fuel efficiency.

Signol offers a web app that uses a data-led approach to motivate seafarers to reduce fuel consumption, allowing individuals to understand the impact of their actions on overall fuel usage and CO2 emissions.

The system will be introduced along with companion tools for the Stolt Tankers management team that can be used to encourage and highlight crew sustainability efforts.

The pilot project will run on seven vessels, five of which use continuous monitoring (IoT) data. During the six-month trial, Stolt Tankers will set achievable goals linked to actions carried out on its ships in areas like main and auxiliary engine performance and trim optimisation.

“For every goal achieved through the system we commit to planting three mangrove saplings at the Stolt Tankers Mangrove Forest in the JBLFMU Ecological Park, the Philippines,” said Maren Schroeder, Managing Director of Stolt Tankers.

“Not only will this initiative help us to reach our sustainability ambitions, but it also helps to protect the local ecosystem close to where many of our crews call home.”
