Energy Saving in Ship Operation

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

It Around 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. Without shipping the import and export of goods on the scale necessary for the modern world would not be possible. Seaborne trade continues to expand, bringing benefits for consumers across the world through competitive freight costs. Thanks to the growing efficiency of shipping as a mode of transport and increased economic liberalization, the prospects for the industry’s further growth continue to be strong. There are over 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations, and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality. Today shipping faces strategic challenges: escalating energy costs and impact on climate change. The common challenges are the industry's reliance on fossil fuels. The fuel cost represents the most significant cost item when operating a vessel (46% of the operating cost - standard Panamax containership) hence it is necessary to find alternate and Clean source of energy to power ship and operate.
