The global sulphur cap 2020 puts the spotlight once again on energy efficiency. Performance is scrutinized by a variety of stakeholders, with claims and counterclaims, often based in half-truths. The largest field for future fuel savings, namely hull management, is yet to be fully explored by most of us. It is therefore high time to investigate all the options and prepare for an energy efficient and performance-based future. 

The comprehensive two-day course is designed for those who are ready to take these challenges seriously and want to achieve durable improvements in the efficiency of their vessels.

The eight modules look into both the potential and the limitations of options in hydrodynamics, machinery operation and nautical operation, as well as their practical implications. Hull roughness and antifouling are discussed in depth with reference to the ISO 19030 standard (Measurement of changes in hull and propeller performance) published in 2016. 
With a high focus on active participation from the attendees, this course will lead to a better understanding of the different options and help you to see what makes sense for your own fleet. 

The course focuses on:

  • (Future) fuels and fuel converters
  • Energy efficiency options in hydrodynamics (resistance, propulsion)
  • Energy efficiency options in machinery (main, auxiliary, hotel load)
  • Energy efficiency options in operation (voyage planning & execution, trim, autopilots)
  • Hull & propeller roughness
  • Antifouling
  • Qualitative performance monitoring
  • Quantitative performance monitoring
