The global sulphur cap 2020 puts the spotlight once again on energy efficiency. Performance is scrutinized by a variety of stakeholders, with claims and counter-claims, often based on half-truths. This course offers an expert guide through the various options, also addressing recent developments and R&D aiming at 2030 and 2050 IMO targets.
This comprehensive training course has been redesigned as a blended learning course for online delivery until further notice. It consists of a combination of live online lectures and Q&A sessions, interspersed with self-study online modules and quizzes to bring more variety and flexibility to the course.
The four modules look into both the potential and the limitations of options in hydrodynamics, machinery operation and nautical operation, as well as their practical implications.
The course focuses on:
- (Future) fuels and fuel converters
- Energy efficiency options in hydrodynamics (resistance, propulsion & what the vendors say)
- Energy efficiency options in machinery (main & auxiliary machinery, renewables for ship propulsion, hotel load, the human factor)
- Energy efficiency options in operation (weather routing, trim, autopilots)
