DESMI OptiSave™ installations achieve savings of one million tons of CO2


Published 21.07.2022 12:38 by


DESMI has installed around 700 OptiSave™ systems which together have generated a cumulative CO2 reduction of one million tonnes of CO2. This corresponds to the consumption of a 16,000 hectare rainforest in one year.

DESMI’s energy saving solution called OptiSave™ offers simple power management to maintain energy efficiency. When installing a pump, the normal procedure is to run it at full speed; However, when the OptiSave™ system is installed, the pump saves fuel through intelligent energy management for cooling pumps and fans.

The OptiSave™ energy saving system offers an economical solution to regulatory compliance. It supports shipowners and designers in meeting the requirement to reduce CO2 emissions. The systems can be integrated in the new build phase or as retrofit applications that are fully integrated with the overall control systems. The OptiSave™ system is also suitable for ships that will remain in service beyond 2030.

“You should install it regardless of rules and regulations. After all, you want to save fuel. And leaving an ecological footprint,” says John Nielsen, Key Account Manager of Marine and Offshore at DESMI.

There are many ways people can help reduce carbon emissions. Planting trees is a natural way to take climate action and reduce our negative impact on the environment as trees absorb the carbon dioxide. However, instead of planting trees, at DESMI we focus on how our customers can save fuel and reduce CO2.

To find out how big the benefits of installing DESMI’s OptiSave™ are, we looked at the amount of forested area required to achieve a CO2 reduction of one million tonnes, which corresponds to the cumulative reduction of 700 OptiSave™ matches currently installed systems. This requires the annual consumption of a 16,000 hectare rainforest or a 100,000 hectare Danish forest, making DESMI’s energy saving solution an obvious choice in the fight to save the planet.

At DESMI we care about the future generations and want to contribute to making the maritime business greener. That’s why we’re committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are standing with local authorities and other manufacturers to try to make a difference.
