Challenge

REFRESH will address the aspects of retrofitting that are essential for improving the energy efficiency onboard. The central concept of REFRESH is the dynamic energy modelling, i.e. the simulation of the energy production, consumption and losses over time. This idea will be implemented in a decision support tool that will allow onboard and ashore personnel to monitor the performance of the ship and adopt appropriate practices as a function of its operational profile.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s FP7 collaborative project under Grant agreement No 285708.

Approach

RINA provides support in testing and verification of the correct implementation of the dynamic energy models developed within the study.

Conclusion

Development of dynamic energy modelling routines; optimisation of the energy efficiency and air emissions for retrofitting and operation; development of a monitoring and management methodology for operation; and development of a decision support tool for operation
