A newly-completed joint development project (JDP) deployed simulation and modeling of carbon footprints of a VLCC to give insight into energy efficiency technologies and LNG bunkering analysis.
he project, realized by major South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), classification society ABS and Hyundai Global Service (HGS), sought to unveil decarbonization and digitalization in the marine and offshore industries.
The JDP included detailed simulation and modeling of the carbon footprint of a Very Large Crude Carrier, analyzing carbon emissions and giving insight into optimized energy efficiency technologies. A detailed study was completed on the available LNG bunkering options.
To achieve the IMO’s ambitious sustainability goals, a broad focus across decarbonization and digitalization is required. This project combines these essential elements,
…said Patrick Ryan, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Engineering and Technology.
Finally, ABS issued Approval in Principle (AIP) to HGS Hi4S (Hyundai Intelligent Smart Solution Service System), which provides AI fleet monitoring and performance analysis. This approval sets the framework to leverage data and data analytics through the HGS Hi4S platform, ABS explained.
Although our vessels fully comply with the IMO’s environmental regulations before 2050, with LNG dual-fuel propulsion systems, including various originally developed energy-saving devices, this joint study will reinforce our competitiveness,
…said Won-ho Joo, Senior Executive Vice President and CTO of HHI.
We hope that our efforts will serve as a starting point for the future era of the digital transformation of the data ecosystem of the shipping industry,
…added Kyoungsoo Ahn, Director of HGS.
