  Smarter Steaming Ahead briefing.pdf
CE Delft
This report studies the impacts of vessel speed on emissions, technical constraints and other experiences with regard to slow steaming and current speed regulations. Moreover, it analyses the legal feasibility of speed limits and feasibility of implementation, possible policy designs and the associated social costs and benefits of speed limits.
Richard Carranza, Maritime Executive March/April 2010
Corrosion is an extremely important issue in the maritime industry and affects components such as hulls, propellers, pumps and shafts. Corrosion related losses range into billions of dollars. Knowing how to control corrosion is therefore very important and an understanding of the chemistry involved is essential

Onshore Power Supply2 (OPS) replaces onboard generated power from diesel auxiliary engines with electricity generated on-shore. OPS is a measure to improve air quality in ports and port cities. It could also reduce the greenhouse gas CO2 to a minimum, if using renewable energy such as wind power. Ports are not normally equipped to supply vessels with electricity from the shore, nor are vessels usually equipped to receive power in this way. However, this could be set to change. Around the world, many activities are taking place and interest in the technology is increasing quickly, due to tougher environmental legislation, increased focus on emissions from ports and shipping, and more recently, rising fuel prices.
The First Hybrid CRP-POD Driven Fast ROPAX Ferry in the World.pdf
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., Technical Review Vol. 41 No. 6 (
A fast ferry equipped with the world's first hybrid CRP-POD propulsion system having the same effects as contrarotating propellers (CRP) has been developed by combining an electric pod propulsion unit and conventional diesel propulsion system. With this system, energy is saved by more than 13% as compared with the conventional twin shafts and propellers system, contributing to a reduction of operation costs and of CO2 emission.

Navy Ship Propulsion Technologies: Options for Reducing Oil Use: General strategies for reducing the Navy’s dependence on oil for its ships include reducing energy use on Navy ships; shifting to alternative hydrocarbon fuels; shifting to more reliance on nuclear propulsion; and using sail and solar power.
European Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Technology Platform, Strategic Overview. June 2005.pdf
European Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Platform
In January 2004, following the recommendation of the High Level Group, the European Commission set up the European Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Technology Platform (HFP) – a partnership of over 300 stakeholders. Its brief? To prepare and direct an effective strategy for bringing hydrogen & fuel cells to market in order to exploit their outstanding environmental and economic potential.This report gives a “work in progress” strategic overview, with further details provided in the Executive Summaries of the Strategic Research Agenda and Deployment Strategy foundation documents. (Both foundation documents were endorsed by the Advisory Council in December 2004.)

GOAL-BASED NEW SHIP CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS, Design life and related lifecycle design parameters, MSC 80 6 9.pdf
Submitted by the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) to IMO, 14 March 2005
This document sets out the factors that have to be considered in terms of defining, at a high level, the design life for a ship. Particular attention is drawn to the different factors that have to be considered by the designer during the design process where the design life has a significant impact. The relationship between the design life cycle and the actual service life cycle is discussed. The document provides a basis for the definition of design life and related core design lifecycle parameters.
Unified first-principles ship structural design based on the Maestro methodology.pdf
Dr R. Dow and Prof. O.F. Hughes
This paper summarizes the value of unifying ship structural design through combining rapid structural modeling, global as well as local finite element analysis, comprehensive failure and limit state analysis, and the use of mathematical optimization to meet these increasing demands. The unification and continued development and extension of this methodology based on the MAESTRO computer program is presented
Green Flagship, Wallenius Wilhelmsen, Descriptive Leaflet.pdf
Wallenius Wilhelmsen
Wallenius Wilhelmsen's concept vessel does not release any emissions into the atmosphere or into the ocean. It uses renewable energy sources and fuel cells to generate the energy required to power the vessel. Its highly advanced design provides optimum cargo capacity to transport cars and other goods around the world more efficiently.
