Volvo Penta D13-800

The ECO TUNING software was installed on a vessel on June of 2020 and a trial was performed in the sea area off Lavrio in Greece.

The trial was undertaken at calm sea and fuel consumption readings were obtained with a digital fuel flow meter while the Captain maintained the engine at steady rpm. This way the fuel consumption is measured without having it compromised by variables such as the propeller’s ratio or the keel friction.

The official consumption chart, as it is provided in the Volvo Penta D13-800 engine’s technical sheet, was taken as benchmark and the readings of the engine provided with FILOS PRO.TUNING’s software are noted over it.
