Propspeed a No-Brainer for Majestic Fast Ferry
With a ferry fleet consisting of 16 vessels, fuel costs comprise around 50% of the business’ total operating costs.
Majestic Fast Ferry Pte Ltd, founded in December 2014, is a family-run ferry business operating in Singapore and Indonesia waters. In 2019 alone, Majestic Fast Ferry transported 2.5 million passengers, earning them the title of the largest ferry operator in Singapore.
Now with a ferry fleet consisting of 16 vessels, fuel costs comprise around 50% of the business’ total operating costs, and so they are constantly looking for ways to reduce fuel consumption and improve vessel efficiency. The ferries are hauled every 2 to 4 months for hull cleaning, and there is always a noticeable build-up of barnacles and other marine growth on the metal running gear.
After learning about Propspeed, Max Tan, Managing Director at Majestic Fast Ferry, began the process of having it applied to all of the company’s 16 vessels, with 12 ferries having Propspeed applied so far. While it has only been a couple of months, Tan is already seeing some savings fuel. Once Majestic Fast Ferry is fully operational following the easing of COVID-19 measures – that’s around 80 trips per day – Tan is excited to see an even bigger difference.
