Nautilus Labs and TotalEnergies expand fleet optimisation partnership

Nautilus Labs has expanded its project with TotalEnergies to optimise fleet performance and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from a chartered liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier fleet. The partnership with Nautilus Labs started in November 2020 and has since been expanded to the full long-term chartered fleet.

TotalEnergies works with various owners and required a partner to analyse fleet data to help optimise operational efficiency and reduce emissions. For TotalEnergies, it was important to find a solution that would seamlessly integrate with existing ship-to-shore systems.

Nautilus Labs leverages high frequency sensor data and builds machine learning models to predict true vessel performance, normalised for environmental factors, allowing TotalEnergies to reduce emissions along with fuel consumption and increase voyage outcomes. TotalEnergies, founder signatory of the Sea Cargo Charter, leverages Nautilus Platform to improve, streamline, and automate emissions monitoring and reporting, including CII tracking, to comply with binding and non-binding regulations, ultimately striving for their goal of carbon neutrality.

“As a charterer, your systems and partners have to be flexible, smart, being able to adapt to new requirements and regulations. In Nautilus we found a solution that can work with any owner and seamlessly integrates all data sets, helping us optimise performance and decisions made during voyages, to ultimately cut greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, we leverage Nautilus Platform to ease and streamline the process of emissions monitoring and reporting. Nautilus is an important partner for us to achieve our ‘Net Zero by 2050’ goal,” said Jerome Cousin, vice president LNG shipping at TotalEnergies.

“We’re excited to work with TotalEnergies, supporting their path towards carbon neutrality,” added Matt Heider, CEO at Nautilus Labs. “We often see siloed data and stakeholders in the industry, resulting in fuel waste and excess emissions. Nautilus Platform supports TotalEnergies in breaking down those barriers and embracing open collaboration. Our solution provides actionable insights, rooted in machine learning and naval architecture to help the industry drive towards maximum efficiency and decarbonisation.”
