Session 1

Ship Planning and Design for Optimal Efficiency

A vessel should be designed optimally for the operations that it will encounter over its lifetime. There has been much change in the industry over the last five to seven years, and focus on efficient designs has increased significantly. Experts in ship operations and ship design will use this session to discuss how design methods have improved, both in setting new requirements to efficient tonnage and also in today’s ship design methods.

Session 2

Fleet Performance Management

Companies are slowly learning how to manage new anti-fouling coatings, quality of dry-dockings, how and when to conduct hull cleanings, and propeller polishing. Hull and propeller degradation during and after a dry-docking period is a major contributor to ship underperformance, but other factors also leave for improvement; engine efficiency, power production and power consumption, paint, use of boilers, shaft generators, consumption in harbours – these all have an impact on the efficiency of the typical merchant fleet.

This Forum will provide a tactical approach to vessel performance – with practical discussion, and an overall holistic approach to ship operations. We will investigate regulations, innovations and best practices for vessel performance in design and operations. We will look at the future of integrated whole ship operations, and consider the impact of ship efficiency on ship shore operations.

Through two defined plenary sessions and informative question and answer panel sessions, we will focus on practical methods, and will bring together representatives to discuss vessel performance optimisation to achieve operational excellence.
