On 1st January 2013 the IMO introduced Maritime Energy Efficiency Regulations in order to benchmark the energy efficiency of new ship designs and to create a framework for the management of energy efficient ship operations for all new and existing ships. It is necessary that energy efficiency improvements� for� design� and� operational� performance� reflect� an� understanding� of� the� ship’s� operational profile, rather than its design condition alone. A ship design is typically carried out by…

The influence of ship operational profile in the sustainability of ship energy systems
In recent years, the environmental and economic sustainability of the shipping sector has gained great atten-tion due to the imposed environmental legislation and the uncertainty on fuel prices. The
A novel approach towards more realistic energy efficiency regulations for tankers
The Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) regulation introduced by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) within International Maritime Organization (IMO) has the aim to improve new
An application of BBNs on the integrated energy efficiency of ship–port interface: a dry bulk shipping case
The outcomes suggest that it would be possible to increase the probability of a more energy efficient and sustainable marine transport operation by integrating the influences of port and ship operation performances and their elements on the related route planning and slow steaming decision-making.
Modelling, analysis and optimisation of ship energy systems
Shipping is the backbone of today's economy, as 90% of global trade volumes is transported by sea. Much of our lifestyle today is only made possible by the existence of shipping as a cheap and
Hydrodynamic Design Study on Ship Bow and Stern Hull Form Synchronous Optimization Covering Whole Speeds Range
The ship forepart and stern form have been optimized under conditions of the single design speed and whole speeds range based on the considerations of generally distributed and variable operational speeds for the operating characteristics of modern container ships synchronously.
A Comparative Analysis of EEDI Versus Lifetime CO2 Emissions
The Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) was introduced as a regulatory tool employed at the ship design phase to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and increase the vessel’s operational
