The maritime industry is moving towards an increased use of green technologies driven primarily by new emissions standards. As a result, maritime vessels are being built with technologically advanced systems and designs. Let’s take a look at ten amazing one-of-its-kind vessels that are presently under development.
It is now important for almost all ships to comply with the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan. Mentioned herein are ten practical points which can help in enhancing the efficiency of the ship while reducing GHG emissions.
Not so long ago, explorers risked their lives and the lives of their crews in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. Now the question is no longer if a route through the Arctic exists but how many ships will use the two routes now open each year along the northern coasts of Canada and Russia.
Shipping companies across the world are trying to come up with innovative engineering ideas and green technologies to tackle the stringent regulations about fuel emissions from vessels. A few of them are developing zero emission ships which would utilize a variety of green energy sources for propulsion. Learn about five such zero emission ship concepts.
Wind energy is one of the most promising renewable sources of energy for ship propulsion. A variety of technologies have been developed to harness wind power which would help reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions from ships. Learn about seven of the best shipping concepts and technologies utilizing wind energy.
Driven by tougher international and environmental standards, (Liquified Natural Gas) LNG is being termed as the fuel of the future. Accordig to experts, large scale shipping is believed to be sourced by LNG in the near future. Will LNG shipping change the course of industry in the future?
Air lubrication system for ships is an innovative technology to reduce the resistance between the ship’s hull and seawater, thereby increasing ship efficiency and fuel savings.
Among the various emission control applications used in the shipping industry, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System comes out to be the most efficient in effectively reducing ship’s NOx emission by 90-95%. Find out more about SCR systems inside the article.
Ocean bricks is a concept for making artificial islands using “Ocean bricks”- scalable, modular structures that can act as basic units for building such artificial grounds. Find out more about ocean bricks inside the article.
Marine cargo transference and transportation contributes to about 90% of the economy worldwide. In order to ensure that maritime industry reduces its negative impact on the environment, a plan – Vision for 2040 as be proposed to mitigate shipping industry emissions.
