Low Energy And Near to zero emissions Ships (LeanShips)

Start date: 01 May 2015, End date: 30 Apr 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: 01 Jun 2013, End date: 31 May 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 ...

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 ...

Breakthrough in European Ship and Shipbuilding Technologies (BESST)

Start date: 01 Sep 2009, End date: 28 Feb 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 ...

"The electric ship concept offers many benefits; among other aspects if offers flexibility of control and effectiveness of power transmission. But predominantly it enables higher energy conversion efficiency by ensuring that prime movers are effectively loaded at all times and across all operating conditions. This dominating advantage cannot be matched by mechanical transmission systems because ge ...

GOAL Based Damage Stability (GOALDS)

Start date: 01 Sep 2009, End date: 31 Oct 2012,

"The new probabilistic damage stability regulations for dry cargo and passenger ships (SOLAS 2009), which entered into force on January 1, 2009, represent a major step forward in achieving an improved safety standard through the rationalization and harmonization of damage stability requirements. There are, however, serious concerns regarding the adopted formulation for the calculation of the survi ...

Automatic Welding Process for the Shipbuilding Industry (SHIPWELD)

Start date: 28 Feb 2010, End date: 29 Nov 2011,

SHIPWELD project will focus on a metal welding process applied to the ship building industry. The objective is to design a monitoring technique aiming to perform a good quality welding joint on a typical application in the ship building industry with a fully automatic welding system unit. Up to now the different section plates of ships are welded manually which causes inaccuracies due to the poor ...
