Its sen- sors provide real-time data for weather- sensitive operations offshore, as well as offering input to asset integrity systems and coastal monitoring. Primary appli- cations include wave and current moni- toring and oil spill detection.

Miros launched Miros Speed Through

Water, a dry-mounted, radar-based sys- tem used to optimize hull speed with, according to Miros, greater accuracy than is possible with underwater mea- surement devices. “Access to accurate speed through water data will enable improvements in the application of ship

Charleston, South Carolina performance optimization protocols.

This, in turn, will lead to signi? cant cost ef? ciencies for ship owners. This is a breakthrough in ef? cient and data- driven ship performance management and an important contribution to ambi- tious goals for lowering emissions in the industry,” said Andreas Brekke, CEO,


As a part of a 6-month pilot-project,

BW Dry Cargo is testing the new tech- nology on their BW Rye newbuild. The initial results of the pilot are promising, and BW Dry Cargo’s Managing Direc- tor, Christian Bon? ls, believes Miros’ technology can contribute to signi? cant (10%) fuel savings for the company.
