Abstract [en]

Wind propulsion systems (WPS) are major investments and the decision to install them requires careful consideration of many complex questions. In this paper we present a systematic, scientific methodology to assess the benefits and drawbacks of such systems at the early concept stage of a vessel. The purpose is to provide guidance for shipowners and operators and help them make informed decisions. The proposed method was developed into a Software tool called ‘SEAMAN Winds’ and has been correlated to full scale results. The program draws on our large database of model tests, and CFD of hulls and wind propulsion technologies. It uses the intended trading routes of the vessel as an important input, typical output data are: a) performance values (ship speed, power requirements etc.) b) environmental parameters (CO2 avoided, EEDI and EEXI reduction, carbon intensity indicator) c) financial metrics (bunker savings, payback time for installation of WPS) Potential applications of the method include making the business case for one particular WPS or investigating in how far certain systems are more suited for a specific route than others.
