Already the world’s most energy and cost efficient means of transport, the shipping sector is at the forefront of sustainable transport, however continuing development is required to ensure it becomes the cleanest sector and develops in the most sustainable fashion in parallel with international regulations.
Alongside the regulatory demands, such as MARPOL, MRV and SEEMP, the commercial realities of energy-efficient shipping mean it is an area which must be explored in detail for all professionals in the industry.
Professionals in the shipping industry need the knowledge and tools to address energy and sustainability requirements, as it not only improves energy efficiency but in so doing, significantly reduces operating costs. This professional development course examines the key topics in this area, with a look at ship technology, retrofits, voyage optimisation etc, as well as the major regulatory approach underpinning the sector.
This is a must study course as it navigates the current and upcoming regulations addressing sustainability in shipping, plus explores the raft of emerging technologies and techniques used to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency in shipping.
This introductory module explores the issue of energy efficiency in shipping, why it is vital on three levels: on a commercial level in terms of cost; on a sustainability level, and most importantly, on a regulatory level. The regulatory aspect is described in more detail to show what laws shipping companies have to abide by when managing their energy.
This module looks at the various regulations and laws designed to enforce better energy efficiency and lower emissions in shipping. The module defines the regulations, and how they are enforced on a vessel level as well as a fleet level. It also explores other relevant legislation on a EU and global level.
This module describes the various ship types and their design requirements to ensure they are highly energy-efficient. It also looks into the various propulsion techniques and energy management devices used in improving efficiency.
The aim of this module is to look at innovative technologies available now as well as future technologies on the horizon for energy efficiency. How can these technologies be utilised and what are the chances of them being effective in improving energy use? What is the ROI on using these and will they become mainstream?
This module examines the issue of the fuels used in shipping. What types of fuel can be used, how are they used, what fuels are potentially to be used in the future, and how can they be managed effectively?
The aim of this module is to examine the various aspects onboard a ship used to manage energy effectively. It looks at such issues as auxiliary machinery management, steam systems and technical and maintenance management. It also explores the roles of the crew in the operation of the vessel in maximising energy efficiency.
One of the ways energy efficiency can be improved is by subtle changes in operational performance. This module explores the ways these can be done, including slow steaming, weather routing and propeller cleaning.
The final module will look at how energy performance is measured and ultimately, monitored and managed. It examines key issues in data and performance management and how these can be utilised effectively for more efficient shipping.
