D2.4.1 Ship technologies ILS 02Sept09.pdf

T Katsoulakos & D Morgan - INLECOM

This study will review ship technologies which could contribute to improved safety and efficiency of maritime transport as well as its environmental performance.

The main goal is to provide information for stakeholders on current state-of-the-art and on the emerging technologies and techniques becoming available, for use on-board ship, in the short term and longer term which will support improved efficiency (cost/ton-km) and quality of maritime transport services (reliability, safety, security and environmental performance). The study will highlight key technologies that will impact the achievement of co-modality transport in Europe.

Selection of appropriate state-of-the-art technologies will need to take into account whether they will be supported throughout the life of a ship in order to avoid early obsolescence and unsupportable systems.                                

 The availability of new technologies for marine applications could have considerable effect on current operational procedures, marine regulations and health and safety standards.  This aspect will be taken into consideration when evaluating potential technologies for application on-board-ship

 

 

Key areas to be addressed

1.     Ship design development trends with reference to

a.      Long Lifetime Design to increase the useful life of ships and reduce degradation effects

b.     Efficient hull forms

c.     Designs to promote intermodal transport services.

2.     Propulsion technology development trends

a.     Performance levels of slow and medium speed diesel  engines and developments associated with increased electronic control of engine processes

b.     Advanced efficiency improvement systems including hybrid and LNG propulsion systems, combined propulsion manoeuvring systems,  wind sail systems (SkySails) and heat recovery systems

3.      Ship operation systems and processes

a.     Ship shore communications

b.     Condition monitoring systems

   Glossary Terms

 

Diesel Engines
A diesel engine is an internal combustion engine that operates using the diesel cycle with highest thermal efficiency approaching 60%; manufactured in two stroke (slow speed) and four stroke (medium or high speed) versions

Ship Efficiency
Ship efficiency can be measured by the average ship running cost per km. The design factors influencing ship efficiency are propulsion efficiency, propeller efficiency and hull efficiency measured in operational terms by specific fuel consumption and ship speed. Operational factors affecting ship efficiency include port turnaround times and efficiency of loading, maintenance, crewing, regulations compliance
