Aquarius MAS - Data Logging, Emissions Calculations & Performance Monitoring

Compact & reliable computer platform for ships and vessels

mas_fuel_consumption_trend_640x428The Aquarius Management & Automation System or Aquarius MAS™ is a marine computer system developed jointly with KEI System which can perform a variety of roles including data logging, performance monitoring and alarm management.

The system can also monitor fuel oil consumption (FOC), calculate vessel emissions (CO2, NOx, SOx) and be scaled to suit most types of vessels from small passenger ferries and offshore support vessels to large ocean going bulk carriers, passenger ferries, tankers and cargo ships.

This highly flexible system is pre-configured before delivery, easy to install and can be upgraded to monitor additional systems later if required.

The Aquarius MAS can also be integrated with renewable energy devices such as solar panels, wind power devices and EMP's EnergySail technology. Read more...
