Mark Gladdis, Business Development Manager of Datum Electronics commented “UMAR Shipping Services is an established company in Cyprus, that has very similar values to us. We both want to ensure our customers operate in the most environmentally sustainable and socially responsible way.
We are excited to work together with UMAR Shipping Services to help meet and exceed our customer’s needs in Cyprus and we look forward to a building a long-term relationship in one of the busiest shipping spots in the world”.

Datum Shaft Power Meter has been successfully installed on more than 800 vessels worldwide, including Oldendorff Carriers. The market-leading system is specifically designed to help ship owners and operators improve their vessel’s fuel efficiency in a range of operating conditions and reduce emissions within the industry.

Likewise, our condition-based monitoring system Datum Hawk offers a unique insight into an individual cylinder of an engine or diesel generator and identifies specific changes within them.
By using a high sample rate of 2,000 sps, Datum Hawk represents the ultimate torque sensor system, that allows for sharply-focused preventative maintenance, saving both time and money. Despite being launched only three months ago, we have already secured 53 orders for the system, with estimated savings for our customers of $19MM/year in fuel.
