Improving environmental performance and reducing cost of ownership
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set a clear path to a zero-emission future, targeting a 30% reduction in GHG emissions (compared with 2008 levels) by 2030, and a 50% reduction by 2050. Marine and offshore owners must thus work now to make their assets run as efficiently as possible while they seek alternative fuel methods for the future.
From the design phase, BV Solutions M&O assesses hull performance and efficiency, paying close attention to how the vessel will actually be used. We perform computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses and other services for our clients, who can in turn can save up to 20% on fuel consumption with a quick ROI period of only a few months.
This leads to lower operating costs and reduced environmental impact once the vessel is in use. Our comprehensive suite of services includes efficiency by design solutions and efficiency by operations solutions through hull performance optimization. We also perform ship energy modelling, correlating predictions with actual sea performance.
We help vessel owners meet emissions reduction targets, including IMO regulations and EU directives.
Vessel optimization takes into account the asset’s actual operating profile and is based on full CFD calculations, performed in numerous environmental conditions. We provide services tailored to each asset’s lifecycle.
Our energy efficiency services offer a balance between improving an asset’s carbon footprint, enabled by realistic ROI and engineering schedules that stay within project constraints.
Thanks to our advanced design methodologies, we close the gap between modelling and actual sea performance through client feedback related to behavior at sea alongside R&D development.
Our advanced energy flow modelling assesses fuel consumption and GHG emissions, evaluates fuel-saving solutions, and benchmarks architectures.
Innovation – Global Service Line Energy Transition Manager
BV Solutions M&O
Energy efficiency is a challenge, even for vessels delivered today from the most recognized shipyards. It needs to be considered from day one of the engineering phase. We have a complete set of energy optimization services that ensure both cost and emissions reductions, as well as a fit-for-purpose design.
