Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a growing matter for shipowners because of IMO regulations to reduce emissions of CO2, NOx and SOx, as well as owners and charterers seeking to manage operating costs. Tecnitas can offers a wide range of solutions to improve energy efficiency.

Energy Systems Modelling

The performance of ship energy systems onboard can be quantitatively analysed over realistic, possibly complex, operational profiles. The analysis can concern the whole ship or focus on specific systems. Sources of improvements can be identified and solutions proposed.

Energy Saving Devices Structure

Various designs of hydrodynamic appendages are more and more installed on the hull, the propeller or the rudder to improve the propulsive efficiency of the ship. A whole methodology has been developed to ensure that such Energy Saving devices do not represent any hazard for the structural element on which it is mounted and for other neighboring hull outfitting.

Hull Form Optimisation

The ship’s overall hydrodynamic efficiency can be evaluated and optimized using the most advanced and accurate hydrodynamic and ship design software available. Ship optimisation can be performed in terms of resistance, propulsion, added resistance in waves, seakeeping, manoeuvrability, propeller cavitation inception risks…

Trim Optimisation

The Trim Optimisation Software can be used onboard to enables a ship’s crew to determine the optimal trim at given ship displacements and speeds to reduce fuel consumption. This software is based on accurate hydrodynamic simulations of ship performances.
