The final part in our small series on low-carbon ship design presents a case story involving the process of modelling and evaluating energy efficiency in a new-build project. The project we are focusing on is the new and beautiful Viking Glory by Viking Line.
Currently, hydrogen and ammonia are the only two truly zero-carbon alternatives for ship fuel. Hydrogen is the alternative that requires more fundamental new-thinking, especially if considering fuel cells as the power plant solution. In the second part of our low carbon story, we present in brief our own hydrogen-fuelled ship design.
In the first part of our three-part blog series about low carbon ship design, we focus on our efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of ships to achieve zero or very low carbon operation. We also present our views on modern energy-efficient technologies and design methods in shipping with the help of concrete examples.
Measuring environmental performance is important, but analysis in its traditional way can be challenging. Deltamarin has developed in-house simulation tools for assessing environmental performance, the benefits of which Jaakko Lappi discusses in our newest blog.
Does hydrogen lie at the heart of future fuels? Replacing diesel-powered ships with ships powered by alternative fuels is the theme we are focusing on today as Jarkko Nurmi approaches the subject by conducting a cost estimation assessing the feasibility of each alternative. The estimation was conducted for Flexens’ Power2AX project.
Our previous blog texts introduced digital design tools designed for estimating a vessel’s lifetime, propulsion power and the energy and environmental footprint. This blog opens up the part of the digital design that is closest to the physical representation of the ship, and explains how it combines it all together. We call this part of […]
What contributed to the successful project planning of Stena Estrid? In the sequel to our project performance blog series, Jari Mäki highlights how project planning is crucial for project performance, as is proven by the case story of Stena Estrid.
Our blog series continues with a post from Jaakko Lappi that focuses on our efforts to achieve future sustainability goals, especially from the perspective of the offshore segment.
With our newest blog post, Jarkko Nurmi starts a series of articles dealing with costs management in shipbuilding and shipping industries. Read what Jarkko has to say about cost estimating during concept design phases.
In the previous blog text, we described the methods that we have for evaluating vessel environmental footprint and energy efficiency. One of their major outcomes was that the operating profile of the vessel is of extreme importance. This blog continues our digital design series by introducing DeltaSeas, which provides answers to this specific question.
