We are pleased to announce that we have expanded our partnership with Datum Electronics.

With immediate effect we have started activities for the German marine market from our Hamburg office. Ideally situated in the Hamburg port area, we are at the heart of the German maritime industry, which consists of over 200+ shipping companies which operate a fleet of more than 2000 vessels.

Datum’s Shaft Power Meter systems are ideal for marine propulsion shafts and diesel generator sets, ensuring an accuracy of 0.1% without the need for recalibration in the field. When additional flowmeters are implemented in the system, shipowners can get full real-time indications of their vessel’s fuel efficiency.

Later in the year we will introduce the Diesel Hawk feature, which provides real-time condition monitoring of each individual cylinder. This will enable shipowners to get an advance warning when a problem with the engine is expected.

In 2018 Datum was awarded a large contract from Oldendorff Carriers in Germany to retrofit their fleet with its shaft power meter systems. As well as supplying shaft power torque meters, Datum will also be responsible for installing torsion meter systems on the vessels and internal crew training.
