Tanker Drifts 280 Nautical Miles to Save Fuel
The Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S (NORDEN) tanker 'Nord Integrity' saved 27 tonnes of fuel by stopping its main engine for more than three days, drifting 280 nautical miles on wind and sea current, the company reports in its news magazine. Robit Ninocha, captain of the Nord Integrity, an MR product tanker weighing 47,400 tonnes, realized that the ship had enough time to spare on a the last leg of a ballast voyage between Brazil and Algeria that it could try traveling without using the engines. The 27 tonnes of fuel saved corresponded to $17,064 in reduced costs. http://shipandbunker.com/news/world/433250-tanker-drifts-280-nautical-miles-to-save-fuelUpload News
