Only those built and delivered after 2014 practically constitute of modern, ‘eco’ tonnage, and such being a 20-25% so far, just by complying with IMO EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) tier levels, which are still not embracing the whole operational envelope of any given ship by means of efficiency.
Forthcoming IMO regulations such as the 2020 0.5% global Sulphur cap and the GHG reduction strategy towards 2050 will foster disruptive changes in the way ships are designed and operators are functioning, so that gradually the fleet in the waters will become more efficient, more environmentally friendly and more adaptable to additional future changes.
Finocean team is currently involved in retrofitting projects for different fuel applications in view of the 2020, while developing proposals for LNG-as fuel upgrades and zero-emission solutions such as Wind Propulsion.
Proudly being a member of the International Windship Association (IWSA), Finocean team has participated in implementing pilot applications in Wind Propulsion and can benchmark best suitable Wind propulsion technology for the specific ship type/size and intended trade routing.
Studies and applications can be developed for the Ship Owners or Investors looking for extending their asset performance to a competitive level beyond the year 2030.
In further, for any such conversion or retrofit project, Finocean team and their collaborative partners can perform:
- Identification of the proper ship modification to be made
- Sourcing of best candidate ships
- Perform Sale and Purchase agreements on behalf of the Buyer
- Manage and consult the preferred partner for the Ship upgrade in question
