Ship Propeller and Generator Torsionmeters

The Ship Torsionmeter Systems have been developed to meet the requirements of the Commercial Marine customers to provide ongoing power monitoring data on ships.

Shaft Power Meter

The current usage of the systems is to provide data for fuel economy and equipment maintenance planning programs

The system is suitable for all Commercial vessels with single or multiple shaft installations with shaft diameters from 150mm up to 1100mm.

What Can a Marine Torsionmeter provide?

A shaft power and torsionmeter accurately measures the power transmitted through a shaft, this enables you to measure the actual power that an engine is delivering to the propeller or generator. 

A Shaft Power and Torsionmeter System is an essential tool to help in the reduction running costs from:-

  • 1  Fuel Saving
  • Improved Maintenance Scheduling
  • Equipment Protection

The cost of an accurate permanently installed torsionmeter is very small in comparison with potentially large savings in running costs.

These savings are achieved by providing:- 


Shaft Power Measurement 

Shaft Power is an essential Input to Ship Performance Monitoring Systems. The data from monitoring actual power levels provides an accurate reference point to assist with assessing:

  • Engine Performance Monitoring
  • Ship Propulsion Efficiency
  • Hull Condition
  • Propeller Condition
  • Specific Fuel Consumption
  • Operational Efficiency Planning
  • Ship Condition Changes 

The same system will provide data to assess the value of new equipment and operating procedures

  • Changes to Operation
  • Changes to Fuel Types
  • Changes to Hull Coatings 

Fitted at an early stage the torsionmeter system can be used in Ship Acceptance Trials and from that point on be a measure of the condition of the ship throughout its lifecycle.

System Advantages
