In MAN Diesel & Turbo, slow steaming is more than just a buzz word. As it is, slow steaming almost accounts for the majority of the work in the retrofit department and MAN expects that this situation will continue for many years.

“At the moment, almost the majority of our retrofit projects are related to slow steaming. We also perform some other optimizations but our predominant focus for the last couple of years has been on slow steaming. We are constantly contacted with needs of answering these problems as even a small decrease of 1 or 2 grams of consumed fuel in different places saves an extreme amount of money when looking at it from the carriers’ viewpoint”, Head of Product Management, Christian R. Simonsen tells ShippingWatch.
