Time on deumurrage
Tonnes CO2 emission at full speed: 2,081
CO2 emission at reduced speed: 1,179
Reduced CO2: 902
Reduced SOx emission 23
Bunker saved 190 (43%)

The oil traders had a stem loading from Batumi in the Black Sea.
Built up with a number of barges and rail cars
The cargo destination was identified as the Isle of Grain and there was a known delay at this port.
Tank space only available before the 16th
*Estimated Time of Arrival
Charterer approached the market and found an owner that understood and was receptive to the Virtual Arrival concept
The vessel was chartered
Vessel sailed on 2nd September 2009 and charterer engaged a Weather Analysis Provider* to do the virtual arrival analysis
Vessel arrived in Isle of Grain at 1000 hrs on the 16th September. The virtual arrival was 0650 Sep 15th.
Reduced emissions was:
CO2 183.2 mts
Nox 4.4 mts
Sox 3.5 mts
This represented a 27% reduction in fuel consumptions and emissions over the length of the voyage.
Bunker Savings 59 m ts of HFO
*A Weather Analysis Provider specialises in weather and vessel performance analysis.
Virtual Arrival is initiated by the industry
The Virtual Arrival concept takes advantage of inefficiency within the transport chain through an agreed and managed reduction of a vessels passage speed
Virtual Arrival delivers absolute reductionsin emissions from the ships involved
