Reducing energy consumption by retrofit

Green Ship of the Future has released a report to show how retrofitting can result in significant reduction of energy consumption decreasing fuel consumption and emissions on board three vessels including VICTORIA SEAWAYS. According to the project findings, this can be achieved through technology that is available today with a return of investment of less than three years.

Last week, Green Ship of the Future released a report that explores how retrofitting and the addition of new technology to older systems, can significantly reduce energy consumption on VICTORIA SEAWAYS and two vessels from Hafnia and Maersk Tankers.

The report finds that VICTORIA SEAWAYS can potentially achieve up to 11.1% reduction of fuel consumption by implementing new and proven technology that is easily implemented such as new propellers and new hull coating exemplified by Hempel in this report. All the suggested solutions were calculated towards an estimated payback time of three years to show the potential of making a green investment in a manner that minimizes operational cost and improve the potential of profitability.

It is also worth mentioning that the report states that it was a challenge to identify fuel saving solutions with a payback of less than three years and acknowledges Victoria’s dedicated crew, Superintendent Sergej Duriagin and DFDS’ Technical Organization for their high focus on optimizing the fleet as many of the suggested solutions were already implemented.

Share solutions and inspire other vessels
Rune Jørgensen Daae, Project Superintendent, says: “Projects like this are welcome eyeopeners for potential retrofits that can lower our environmental impact and present a good business case.

“It is positive to see there are still large savings to be made. We must continue to optimise our vessels to become even more sustainable, reduce operational costs and stay competitive, but also to ease the change to alternative energy sources. We hope this project will bring concrete saving potentials and inspire others to optimise their vessels.”
