Total Marine Solutions has signed a fuel consumption solutions and equipment agreement with engine energy consumption and management tools provider TX Marine Messsysteme.

The agreement will see Total Marine represent TX Marine’s Shaftpower Measurement System TORXmeter and the engine diagnosis solution PMImkII to the United States market. Total Marine will offer sales, service, and support for the solutions.

The TORXmeter Shaftpower Measurement System is one of the most cost-effective and easy-to-install solutions for speed, torque, and shaft power measurement on marine shafts, supporting precise calculations of fuel consumption for optimisation and environmental sustainability.  The PMImkII (pressure mean indicator) allows for engine diagnosis, to analyse a myriad of operational problems quickly and reliably in the engine, before they become a costly issue.

The agreement represents Total Marine’s expansion into the energy consumption monitoring market and its first agreement for fuel consumption solution and equipment.

“Energy monitoring is a natural progression for our business,” said Total Marine Solutions president Alexandra Anagnostis-Irons. “Fuel consumption and engine monitoring play a critical role in environmental operations and the bottom line. We’re very happy to expand into this new area for our clients.”

“The expansion of our worldwide network is very important for us. We not only want to make our products and solutions better known, also increase our global coverage through trained service partners. With TMS’ many years of experience in environmental solutions, we see a great potential for the cooperation,” said Nadine Paschen, managing director of TX Marine.

“At a time when so many of our clients are looking to optimise voyage planning, and reduce costs, with an eye on sustainability, it makes sense to collaborate with TX Marine to represent these solutions,” said Ms Anagnostis-Irons.
