Europort Masterclass: How energy management can save costs and support mrv compliance

The energy efficiency of vessels of all types is a concern for shipping companies and fleet managers, saving costs and limiting emissions. Getting an insight into the optimum use of energy can help shipping companies perform better using the same amount of fuel. In this way, energy management can contribute to achieving a profitable and sustainable business model. There are other reasons for gaining an insight into fuel use and emissions. CO2 emissions from maritime transport, for example, are subject to new regulations from both the European Commission and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Programme and speakers

  • Chairman is Sander den Heijer, sector manager for Netherlands Maritime Technology (the Dutch association for shipyards, maritime suppliers and service providers). He is involved in developing regulations and policy in the field of the environment and emissions.
  • Each Masterclass starts with an inspiring vision, offering a unique perspective for the maritime sector. Teus van Beek, general manager, market innovation within the marine solutions division of Wärtsilä, shares the company’s vision of a future with zero emission vessels.
  • Nick Lurkin, staff member, environmental affairs, at the Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners (KVNR), gives an overview of the regulatory framework covering the monitoring, reporting and verification of CO2 emissions.
  • Improving the energy and environmental efficiency of both new build designs and ships in operation is important to every shipowner. Sebastian Sala, head of innovation and energy management at Carnival Maritime, is responsible for developing and improving the energy efficiency of the Costa and AIDA fleets of cruise ships. He presents a practical case study showing the energy efficient design and operation of a cruise ship.
  • To improve the overall energy efficiency of passenger vessels, CETENA S.p.A (a Fincantieri Company) is developing a dedicated decision support system for ship energy management within the LeanShips project. Giuseppe Stranieri, Naval architect and Marine Engineer, will discuss their experiences.
