Foss Maritime Gets 0.5% Accuracy With FloScan Systems
Foss Maritime, one of the largest tug boat companies with over 200 vessels operating worldwide, tested FloScan Fuel Computers on the M/V Justine Foss powered by twin EMD 12-645 2150 hp engines. This tug operated between Washington and Alaska running approximately 1000 nautical miles each way. The Justine Foss made 8 round trips using approximately 80,000 gallons of fuel per trip.

Dana Brodie, Ocean Port Engineer for Foss Maritime, determined the accuracy of the FloScan Fuel Computers to be within ½ of 1% for the entire 640,000 gallons used! As a result, the equipment is now being used for fuel billing purposes and other vessels, such as the Drew and the Wendy Foss, have been outfitted with FloScan Fuel Computers.
 
The system Foss Maritime has installed is the Series 9000 GPS Interface model which displays Engine Hours, RPM’s, Gallons Per Hour, Gallons Used, and Nautical Miles Per Gallon. This system totally eliminates the need for calculating and plotting a fuel/speed curve since the boat operator can reach optimum fuel efficiency by simply changing the throttle position successively until the instrument’s MPG reading peaks. Furthermore, the system pays for itself many times over with the fuel savings obtained by running at the peak efficiency point at all times.
