Duration: 2 days

With the SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan) being mandatory since January 2013, it is clear that many ship operators have simply focussed on compliance and are not addressing the real issues affecting shipping’s impact on the environment.
There is, in addition, the ongoing necessity to focus on cost reduction and profitability as fuel prices continue to rise. It is therefore high time to explore all the options and prepare for an energy efficient future.
This comprehensive two day course is designed for those who are ready to take these challenges seriously and who want to achieve real improvements in the efficiency of their vessels.
The eight modules cover the theoretical foundations 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 upcoming ISO 19030 standard (Measurement of changes in hull and propeller performance).
With a high emphasis on active participation from the attendees, this course will lead to a better understanding of the different options and how to implement them.

The course focuses on:

  • Fuels and Fuel Converters
  • Energy Efficiency Options in Operation (voyage planning & execution, trim, autopilots)
  • Energy Efficiency Options in Machinery (main, auxiliary, hotel load)
  • Energy Efficiency Options in Hydrodynamics (resistance, propulsion)
  • Hull & Propeller Roughness
  • Antifouling
  • Hull and Propeller Monitoring and Maintenance
  • Management Plans for Energy Efficiency
