Route optimisation

With the aim of reducing navigation times and, consequently, fuel consumption, the optimisation of the routes was implemented starting from 2012 and utilised systematically for the longest navigation transits.
Thanks to real-time satellite measurements, an optimal solution that saves navigation time is possible for each voyage.

The initiative continued in 2013 and the software for route improvement was implemented on Castorone, FDS, FDS 2, Castoro 6 and Castoro 8, saving a total of 233 tonnes of fuel.

The total estimated saving since the initiative started is 29 days and 18 hours, 1,349 t of fuel and 4,268 t of GHG emissions on these 16 routes.
