In January 2024, NYK Line embarked on a trial initiative by installing the “Telegraph Agent™” system, developed by Nabtesco Corporation, aboard one of its vessels. This system, aimed at controlling ship speed horsepower, represents a shift from conventional manual RPM adjustments to automatic management.

Traditionally, ship speed regulation involved manual adjustment of main engine revolutions (RPM) by the crew, leading to fluctuations in fuel consumption. The “Telegraph Agent™” system autonomously adapts main engine revolutions to match the desired ship speed, maintaining engine load within preset parameters. This automation is poised to curtail unnecessary fuel consumption and contribute to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction.
