“AFT OPT” TECHNOLOGY for unique ADDITIONAL fuel savings and benefits

MOVENA offers qualified clients a unique ship newbuilding design service in joint cooperation with our technology partner LR Shipdesign AG. The Patented Lindinger Hull optimisation considers previously widely neglected hydrodynamic and hydro-mechanical effects.

Result: fuel savings between 5% and up to 10%+ compared with optimised traditional design methods – depending on speed, vessel geometry, propeller, rudder etc. Various business cases have proven the new approach.

The AFTship OPTimisation will be done based on an optimised design provided by owner, design office or shipyard. Best results can be achieved in case CFD, lines, …, hard points etc. will be made available to start optimisation from there. The optimisation results will be delivered in the respective data format (IGS).

The otimisation delivers proven results in particular for larger vessels (>130m) independent of ship type (passenger vessels, bulker, container vessels, tankers). In addition, substantial reduction of noise, vibration and savings such as for engine maintenance are provided on top. For arctic going vessels it is a “must check” option to be in compliance with oncoming regulations for noise reduction to protect the environment.

Please find a savings calculation example in the NEWS section of  “m-ocean.info”, our dedicated website for cruise/passenger vessels.

For discussion of this proven optimisation concept and for your application to enter the new world of energy efficiency, please contact Dr. Wasmansdorff: wff@movena-group.com
