TARGETS publishes Energy Saving Guidelines


TARGETS partners have summarised the findings from 3 years developments and set out to publish these through the web site during the next period.

The first document focuses on guidelines for using the TARGETS technologies when defining and designing energy efficient ships for different application and services. Results concerning design, retrofitting and operation are compared and summarised in a concise guide. This document builds on the description of all alternative configurations for the three phases of a ship’s life cycle produced so far (i.e. construction, retrofitting and operation) and highlights the most critical ways and configurations leading to improved energy efficiency of shipping. The guide not only provides a qualitative comparison among various alternatives but also a quantitative assessment of various assessment criteria.

The Guidelines are available here for download.
