ECOTRAIN workshop, training of energy-efficient ship operations

The objective of the workshop is to provide the information and instruction needed to operate a ship in a fuel-saving, energy-efficient and environmental-friendly way. Lectures and instruction are supported by training sessions in a full-mission simulator with additional eco-module for measuring fuel consumption and emissions to air.

The following topics are emphasized:

  • Sustainable development and climate change, WCED, UN SDGs, UNCED, UNFCCC, CBDR
  • IMO Strategy on reduction of GHG emissions from ships to 2050
  • International regulations, MARPOL Annex VI
  • Tools for energy efficiency, SEEMP, EEDI, EEOI
  • Emissions to air, SECA, NECA, DECA
  • Measuring, monitoring and reporting emissions, IMO DCS and EU MRV
  • Fuels and consumption, alternative fuels
  • Ship design for good fuel economy, ESDs
  • Engine design and development
  • Energy use and distribution
  • Hybrid and electric propulsion, fuel cells
  • Frequency converters
  • Voyage optimization
  • Trim and speed optimization
  • Route planning
  • Effects of environmental conditions
  • Squat and bank effects
