We are delighted to announce we have been selected to participate in the 2023 Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP) focused on Norway Clean Maritime. We are already working successfully with two clients in Norway, and recognise the huge potential this programme has to offer.
We will be looking to collaborate with ship builders and ship design companies to support their design projects by assisting with innovative solutions, Energy Saving Devices (ESD’s) and design concepts to enhance energy efficiency, improve performance and seakeeping, reduce emissions and save on fuel.
We also specialise in EEXI/EEDI calculations working alongside tier one Classification Societies. Our development of a new simulation workflow to support performance predictions is innovative and a first of its kind, which we will be showcasing during the programme.
Incorporating Wind Propulsion Technology (WPT) is one solution to help the shipping industry move closer towards achieving its reduction in emissions. Having developed a ground-breaking simulation workflow which directly compares the efficiency of Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion (WASP) and determines the potential power saving, we will also be looking to present this to our Norwegian customers. The highly complex simulations can model both the hydrodynamic and aerodynamic effects of the whole ship including its propulsion, simultaneously in a single simulation.
“We are excited to be involved in the UK Innovate programme to explore the opportunities for a UK-Norway collaboration to develop the vessels and infrastructure required to enable the Green Shipping Corridors. Our renowned experience and expertise in testing potential solutions for shipping vessels to achieve decarbonisation is world class and unrivalled. Our simulation workﬂow to compare the eﬃciency of WASP devices will provide accurate CFD analysis of potential savings and full-scale performance predictions to help achieve reduced emission targets. ” comments Dr.-Ing. Rodrigo Azcueta.
