Energy Saving in Ship Operation Case Study

Authors(2) :-Ankit Pandey, Dr. Santosh Dalvi

Shipping is the world's only really reliable, global, cost-effective and energy-efficient mass transportation method for energy, materials, foods and products, maritime transport is central to sustainable development. In addition, the maritime transportation system itself must, therefore, ensure that its development is also sustainable. The concept of a sustainable maritime transportation system aims to identify some broad areas that need to be addressed if sustainability is to be achieved. These include safety, environmental protection, efficient operation, security and resource conservation. Energy-efficiency measures are, therefore, part of this concept, as they also address the reduction of CO2 emissions from international shipping which can be reduced by lowering fuel consumption; a key factor in ensuring international shipping contributes to efforts to mitigate climate change. Ships are important and strategic engineering structures. the ever increasing demands of efficiency, clean environment are pushing the size and complexity of ships upwards. Many Areas are taken in consideration to reduce fuel consumption and reduce air,water and noise pollution .one way to achieve better fuel saving is timely maintenance of machinery and regular interval hull cleaning. There are many reasons to look for Energy efficient Ship. Here's a few:-As stated from (Fathom Ship Efficiency: The Guide, 2011). Reduce fuel consumption - SAVE MONEY, extra power and fuel consumption are needed to maintain ship service speed. Energy Efficient Ship will consume less fuel.
