General Cargo ships
Cargo handling makes the SAJ-DMS system an important tool for visualizing the hull deflection and displacement changes in real time. The monitoring of the overall bending online makes it possible to compensate with ballast to minimize the shear forces. Keep track of the dynamic trim in port to get the correct departure condition with minimum ballast. Continuous trim indication during sea voyage makes it easy to adapt and minimize the fuel consumption.
In shallow water the trimming effect of squat can cause lack of maneuverability and risk of grounding. In any case the squat will cause an increase of bunker consumption. With the SAJ-DMS system the previously invisible squat can be clearly seen and counter action can be taken at an early stage.
