Deltamarin said it aims to help ship owners and operators boost vessels’ energy efficiency with its new smart simulation tool, offering several items with significant fuel saving potential (3-6 percent of total fuel costs).
Deltamarin’s “Energy and Environmental Efficiency” (EEE) ship design process includes several dimensions, such as practical design tools for modeling the energy consumption, a consistent follow-up method of the performance indicators and a bunch of useful project practices that enable taking the design ideas and results and implementing them in real life.
Energy flow modeling is at the heart of the EEE work, and Deltamarin sad it has recently developed a new-generation design tool for this purpose.
The tool itself is a flexible, dynamic simulation platform
at system level that can accept data in almost any format and at various levels of precision. Such flexibility is required, since the energy models are configured for various purposes.
Examples of these are simple machinery
or system studies for concept projects or feasibility evaluations of a new product or process for retrofit studies. It is also possible to establish follow-up of the key performance indicators of a ship from the feasibility stage to a detailed level of design within the same model, continuing with operational follow up.
