Description

Nowadays, self-propelled maritime transport increasingly depends on the use of new technologies and energy from renewable sources.The Action Plan clearly shows that the vision of building a ship that does not release emissions is realistic. As far as manufacturing time is concerned, it is not only a question of technology development, but also of the advancement of economy, infrastructure, laws, the freight market, etc. This paper aims to analyze a VLCC ship in terms of energy efficiency by introducing innovative systems on board and correlating with the classical systems of the ship. Also, the paper present theoretical and practical considerations for optimizing the operation of energy systems at a VLCC of 305000 dwt. The paper introduces an innovative VLCC concept where, through on-board innovative power systems, bring major improvements to this type of ship.
