SIM-based Energy Efficiency Evaluation Service Enables Design Stage Assessment of Decarbonization Technologies
(HOUSTON) In an industry first, ABS has launched an advanced service using sophisticated modeling and simulation technologies to assess the impact of a wide range of vessel decarbonization technologies at the design stage as well as simplifying EEXI and CII compliance.
The SIM-based Energy Efficiency Evaluation Service will allow both new-build vessels and existing vessels to compare different design and operational options and evaluate the performance impact of adding new technologies.
This is just the beginning for the service, with an update due next year adding CII compliance planning, allowing time to prepare for any required retrofitting and modifications to the fleet.
“Just as the simulation is being used in automotive design to decarbonize vehicles, shipping must embrace new ways of seeing things to bring forward innovation for greener vessels. At ABS we can now use advanced simulation and modeling to assess new concepts in design, engineering, and operations while a vessel is in its design stages, allowing ship owners and shipyards to make more informed decisions. We believe simulation is a technology with the potential to make a significant contribution to the decarbonization of our industry, and ABS is leading the way by beginning to realize those gains today,” said Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer.
