Eniram Ltd., the Helsinki, Finland-based provider of decision-support systems for the ocean-shipping industry, is establishing a wholly owned subsidiary based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The new office, operating under the name Eniram Inc., is part of a push by the company to strengthen its presence in the North American maritime market. Several months ago, Eniram announced the general commercial availability of its Dynamic Trimming Assistant (DTA) software, to help carriers decrease fuel consumption and reduce emissions. The company has now reached its first agreements with cruise companies operating in Florida. The DTA helps vessel officers to optimize trim at all times, minimizing water resistance. The system continuously collects and displays real-time data on vessel attitude. Key metrics are made available in an easy-to-read graphic form. The new office in Florida, focusing on providing local service and support to North American customers, is scheduled to be fully operational at the beginning of October.
