Task 6.1: Overall ship power train optimization
 

Objectives:

  • To consolidate a methodology and develop an associated simulation tool for ship propulsion powertrain optimal configuration and performance.
  • To optimise overall ship powertrain design for real service conditions and thus increase overall propulsive efficiency and fuel economy and reduce overall pollutant emissions by 3%.
