With our Energy Audit on ships we are able to provide you a good opportunity to look at the ship energy use and see where savings can be made. Our Energy Audit, developed by VICUSdt and specially designed for the maritime industry, evaluates and determines where and how energy is being lost, what systems are operating inefficiently and what cost-effective improvements can be implemented to reduce energy consumption and to save money.
About the Energy Audit on ships
Nowadays almost everyone in the maritime industry is seeking ways to save money and to keep his enterprise in profit. An Energy Audit on ships is hereby the first step towards adopting an exercise in energy efficiency on ships and to harvest the resultant savings.
The basic objectives of conducting an Energy Audit on ships are: identifying areas where there is a loss of energy, identifying areas where new developed technology can give cost savings and – above all – improving energy efficiency of the ship by saving fuel.
What makes our Energy Audit on ships different?
The energy balance in a typical ship normally involves a propulsion engine as a primary consumer and secondary consumer, auxiliary groups, as being multiple combinations of drive solutions from the power plant and ancillary equipment, such as the shaft generators and hydraulics. While the primary consumer is the engine of the ship, we must not forget that this engine uses energy in powering propeller, which in turn, must overcome the resistance of the hull and interact with it and its appendages, such as nozzles and ship rudders.
That is why we will not only collect the data on board of your ship (which includes records of power consumption, speed and the usage profile of the ship) but we will focus also on the hydrodynamics of your ship. To make the calculations, VICUSdt uses their advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software.
Outcome of our Energy Audit on ships
In most cases the outcome of our Energy Audit on ships is, that there are small low-cost actions needed to improve the performance of your vessel significantly. For example new designs of bulbs, keels, stern flaps, flaps, nozzles or rudders.
Suitable for any type of vessel in the maritime industry
Our Energy Audit on ships is suitable for any type of vessel for all maritime sectors including shipping, shipbuilding, offshore, inland waterways, dredging, fishing and yachting. For example: general cargo ships, bulk carriers, container ships, auto carriers, tankers, fishing vessels, oil industry vessels, passenger ships, ferryboats, tow and tug boats, barges and specialized ships.
