Operation with tight time schedule with calls in many harbors and limited water depths, it is necessary to monitor trim, heel and draft. In port the large length and breadth makes it difficult to manually read all draft scales with the ship in the same position due to change of trim and heel caused by wind, swell and free surfaces in tanks.
The SAJ-DMS system gives accurate and clear information. The system also makes it easy to verify/correct the stability calculation for unknown weights to match the actual floating position.
At sea monitoring the dynamic effects correctly is the key to save fuel, safely manouvre in shallow water and minimize the environmental impact.
