Cargo Heating Management Service

  1. 1. Cargo Heating Management Service Planning and Monitoring Services PROFESSIONAL MARINE SERVICES Blue Water Trade Winds Pvt. Ltd.
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Over the years cargo heating operations have been performed by the ships staff based on their experience and sound engineering practices. However the absence of a specific tool for assisting them in fuel estimation for heating and a proper cargo heating plan has time and again resulted in excess fuel consumption and expansive cargo claims due to over or under heating of the cargo. </li></ul><ul><li>The Cargo Heating Management Service has been developed by Blue Water to assist the vessel staff and vessel managers by optimum estimation, planning and monitoring of cargo heating operations onboard the ship. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What does the Cargo Heating Management Service do? <ul><li>Estimates the cargo temperature trend over a specified voyage and calculates the amount of fuel to be burnt in the boiler to raise or maintain the cargo temperature. </li></ul><ul><li>Analyzes the boiler characteristics, performance curves and the steam heating system’s efficiency for devising a comprehensive cargo heating plan for the voyage and recommends optimum boiler load, condensate temperatures, heating schedules etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Monitors the cargo heating efficiency over the voyage through a daily reporting system with the ship, so as to deal with deviations and unforeseen conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Helps the vessel staff in trouble shooting and recommends corrective measures to be taken. </li></ul>

Four Stage Work Flow <ul><li>The service has been designed not to interfere with the normal routines onboard ships and not to increase the workload or paper work of the seafarers or ship managers in any way. </li></ul><ul><li>The assigned vessel is supposed to send the Blue Water the vessel and cargo details in a pre-formatted “ Initial Report ” form. Most information in the form has to be sent only once. </li></ul><ul><li>Blue Water team devises the “ Cargo Heating Plan ” and sends it back to the vessel staff for implementation onboard the vessel. </li></ul><ul><li>The vessel staff communicates updates by sending a “ Daily Heating Telegram ” to Blue Water.
