New initiative encourages crew members to engage in fuel-saving practices more frequently

Danish chemical ship-owning and chartering company Christiania Shipping has launched behavior change service Signol in a fuel efficiency project using StormGeo data to increase crew members' fuel-saving behavior. The six-month project aims to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions across 18 vessels by engaging crew members through Signol's web app.

Christiania Shipping has partnered with behavior change service Signol in a fuel efficiency project aimed at reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on 18 chemical and gas tankers. The project will engage around 70 crew members through Signol’s web app and communication service to encourage fuel-saving actions. By focusing on engine maintenance, vessel trim, and efficient use of auxiliary engines, the project aims to identify and act on fuel-saving opportunities.

Signol’s service uses 17 behavior change techniques to encourage seafarers to think and act differently in their daily work, ultimately leading to significant changes in crew behavior without requiring constant engagement. Christiania Shipping’s CEO, Fridtjof Eitzen, expressed satisfaction with the rollout of Signol’s service across the fleet, highlighting the potential for reducing vessel emissions without capital investment.

The partnership between Christiania Shipping and Signol is seen as a significant step towards decarbonization in the maritime industry, with a three-year commitment to using Signol’s service following a successful six-month trial. By incorporating crew behavior into their approach to decarbonization, Christiania Shipping is complementing existing efforts such as data simulations, monitoring tools, and AI-powered propulsion. Additionally, the company has expanded its fleet with the construction of two 13,000 dwt stainless steel chemical tankers in collaboration with Japanese shipyard Murakami Hide.
