HydroComp, Inc. will be in Rotterdam, Netherlands in November for EUROPORT 2017 – the international maritime meeting place for innovative technology and complex shipbuilding. We are excited to once again be in Europe to meet customers and continue building our network.
Technical Director, Don MacPherson will present a paper at the
RINA Power & Propulsion Alternatives for Ships titled:
Design-side Innovation to Minimize the Environmental Footprint of Ro/Pax Ferry
Ahoy Congress Centre, Dock 5/6, 3rd floor
Wednesday, 8 November, 15:30
This presentation will discuss design-side investigations and their outcomes. New calculations proved vital to the success of the project, including a new speed-prediction method that assisted in the search for drag reduction, multi-mode duty-profile optimization, and early-stage assessment of LNG and dual-fuel fuel options. The presentation will also address reduction in the ship’s carbon footprint with full duty-profile assessment of CO2 emissions.
