Most maritime products are typically associated with large investments and are seldom built in large series. Where other modes of transport benefit from the economy of series production, this is not the case for maritime products which are typically designed to refined customer requirements increasingly determined by the need for high efficiency, flexibility and low environmental impact at a compe ...

Low Energy And Near to zero emissions Ships (LeanShips)

Start date: May 1, 2015, End date: Apr 30, 2019,

The specific challenge for waterborne transport call MG4.1 is, “To support developments that make new and existing vessels…more efficient and less polluting”. A sound way to support developments is, to demonstrate solutions that are sufficiently close to market so that ship owners will consider these in their future investment plans. Following this reasoning LeanShips will execute 8 demonstration ...

Joint Operation for Ultra Low Emission Shipping (JOULES)

Start date: Jun 1, 2013, End date: May 31, 2017,

Reducing emissions from shipping has increasingly become a challenge over the last years, both as a counter measure against global climate change and to protect local environments and population from waste, gas emissions and noise.This challenge has been documented both in policy papers, like the Europe 2020 initiative or the Transport White Paper, and in rules and regulations issued by IMO as wel ...

The SMARTYards project aims to improve the productivity of European small and medium sized shipyards and related subcontractors working with them by at least 20%. This will be achieved by improving knowledge and technological skills, needed to survive in a tough global competition and to provide innovative products. This is particularly important as the technology gap between larger and smaller E ...

Materials and structures are called adaptive if they can change certain properties in a predictable manner due to the forces acting on them (passive) or by means of built in actuators (active). Those materials and structures are referred to as smart if they provide best performance when operation circumstances change. The project ADAM4EVE focuses on the development and assessment of applications o ...

High Integrity Low Distortion Assembly (HILDA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Aug 31, 2015,

"HILDA will deliver a cost effective, low distortion welding process for EU shipyards to allow them to maintain competitiveness and produce light, strong, more fuel efficient vessels. The solid state technique will enable the modular construction of dimensionally accurate, high strength, corrosion resistant fabrications across the entire range of steels, enabling the introduction of stronger, toug ...

Green Retrofitting through Improved Propulsion (GRIP)

Start date: Nov 1, 2011, End date: Mar 31, 2015,

"The aim of the GRIP project is to reduce fuel consumption in shipping by 5% (with individual ships up to 10%) and thus reduce exhaust gas emissions. Its first objective is to give a sound basis for the choice of energy-saving devices (ESD) for ship owners. The second is to give insight into the detailed requirements on the device design by performing an analysis of the interaction between hull a ...

Retrofitting is defined as the installation onboard ships of state-of-the-art or innovative components or systems and could in principle be driven by the need to meet new regulatory standards or by the ship owner interest to upgrade to higher operational standards. Retrofitting should become an established practice in the shipping industry involving the entire value chain and exploring the possibi ...

Breakthrough in European Ship and Shipbuilding Technologies (BESST)

Start date: Sep 1, 2009, End date: Feb 28, 2013,

"Initiated by EUROYARDS, BESST aims to achieve a breakthrough in competitiveness, environmentally friendliness and safety of EU built ships. Focusing on passenger ships, ferries and mega-yachts, the results will to a large extend be applicable also to other ships. A holistic life cycle performance assessment on ship level will guide the technical developments on system level, clustered in System G ...

Probabilistic Framework for Onboard Fire-Safety (FIREPROOF)

Start date: Jun 1, 2009, End date: Oct 31, 2012,

"The traditional fire safety regulations that apply to ship design have been widely described as inadequate in two ways. Firstly they do impose unnecessary and inapplicable constraints on novel designs. Secondly novel designs can have features that do not satisfy the premise of existing rules, thereby setting them free from fire safety rules by default, often leading to unsafe designs. In or ...
