Reducing Energy Consumption By Retrofit
DFDS’ VICTORIA SEAWAYS and two MR tankers from Hafnia and Maersk Tankers are part of Green Ship of the Future’s Retrofit project.
Green Ship of the Future has released a report to show how retrofitting can result in significant reduction of energy consumption decreasing fuel consumption and emissions on board three vessels, including the DFDS ferry. According to the project findings, this can be achieved through technology that is available today with a return of investment of less than three years.
The report finds that VICTORIA SEAWAYS can potentially achieve up to 11.1% reduction of fuel consumption by implementing new and proven technology that is easily implemented such as new propellers and new hull coating exemplified by Hempel in this report. All the suggested solutions were calculated towards an estimated payback time of three years to show the potential of making a green investment in a manner that minimizes operational cost and improve the potential of profitability.
