Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute, CSSC (SDARI) and Det NorskeVeritas AS (DNV) have worked together to provide guidance on relevant fuel savingmeasures for bulk carriers to be built in China. The aim is to help ship owners cut costs andreduce emissions. Studies report a large margin for savings, and there exists a variety of options on how to cut the required engine power. It is challenging to manoeuvre thesewaters, with various suppliers promoting their device claiming large savings at low costs.There is no doubt that the fuel consumption of a typical bulk carrier design with a standardpropeller and rudder may be significantly reduced by use of current technology, and at acost that implies a pay back time acceptable to most owners.
Objective of the joint project:To provide to Ship Ownersadvice regarding available technology and cost effectiveness of Fuel Saving Measureswhich are relevant for Bulk Carriers to be built in China
There are two main deliverables:
A guideline on fuel saving measures - this document
A framework for return-on-investment calculations for fuel saving measuresThe scope of the guideline is to provide an overview of the most relevant fuel savingmeasures that are available for bulk carriers to be built in China.It covers the following fuel saving measures:
Hull shape
Openings – arrangement and design
Mewis duct
Propeller nozzle
Pre duct
Pre-swirl stator
Propeller design
Contra rotating propeller
Propeller boss cap fin
Propeller rudder transition bulb
Rudder profile
Main engine
Auxiliary engine
Waste heat recovery system© SDARI and DNV
