Fathom, the information specialists on maritime eco-efficiency, officially released a fully revised, updated and extended second edition of key industry reference source, Ship Efficiency: The Guide, in response to evolving technology and efficiency solutions on the market.

In an economic climate in which owners and operators face increasing pressure to reduce fuel costs, Ship Efficiency: The Guide is a source of vital commercial knowledge. It is the only industry publication series that critically examines the viability of fuel saving technologies and analyses providers' claims.

Supported by the world’s largest shipowners association, BIMCO, and classification society ABS, Ship Efficiency: The Guide 2nd Edition now provides even greater in-depth analysis of fuel saving, efficiency technologies and measures for those thirsty for comprehensive coverage of the eco-efficiency sector.

With an extra 100 pages of content and in-depth critique of over 220 products across over 60 technology categories from more than 100 providers, the new 2nd edition of the Guide has been wholly revised since the 2011 flagship edition. The new edition also includes new chapters, including ‘Energy Management Software Solutions’ plus additional content, case studies and expanded critique of the eco-efficiency technologies.

Alison Jarabo, managing director Fathom commented, “With the finished Guide in our hands, we are starkly aware of the Guide's growth in depth and volume; and thus just how much the industry has grown in the past two years since we wrote the first edition.”

The maritime clean technology market has developed at such a formidable rate that we have had to go back to the drawing board for each technology sector and application.

Fathom is about enabling vessels and operators to work smarter, not harder. Ship Efficiency: The Guide has become an important industry reference tool and our 2013 edition fulfils the need for valuable analysis of this changing and dynamic sector."

The Guide also consolidates expert contributions from across the industry;  BIMCO, Andreas Chrysostomou, and Howard Fireman of ABS all share key insights and advisory information to and from across the industry.

Howard Fireman, Vice President, Operational and Environmental Performance, ABS, said, “At ABS, we are dedicated to assisting the maritime and offshore industries in tackling the challenges of energy efficiency and compliance with environmental regulation. This forms an increasingly important part of our core mission to promote the security of life and property and preserve the natural environment. The increased use of technology, both hardware and software, plays an important part in this process. Ship Efficiency: The Guide sits alongside ABS’ own guides and advisories on these topics – in particular, ABS’ new Energy Efficiency Advisory – as an important reference source, from which the industry can draw as it seeks to understand the issues and formulate strategies for compliance and more efficient operations.”

Jeppe Skovbakke Juhl, Senior Marine Technical Officer, BIMCO commented, “It's a challenging but exciting time to be in the shipping industry, as is evident by how different the 2013 Guide is to the 2011 edition. Fuel efficiency solutions are increasingly innovative and the providers and technologies available to the market have increased significantly in number. As the industry has grown and developed, so has the need for a fully expanded and revised edition of Ship Efficiency: The Guide to provide an accurate and up-to-date version of this vital reference tool for the industry.

Supported and assisted by BIMCO, Fathom has produced a distinctive and important publication for owners, operators and managers seeking to reduce emissions as well as fuels costs.”

The Guide is available for purchase now at www.fathomshipping.com. Fathom is also offering one free subscription to their C-Tech service www.fathom-ctech.com (usually £250 per annum) with each copy
