The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers will host a workshop on marine energy efficiency for ships, tugs, ferries and offshore supply vessels March 11-12 at the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies in Linthicum Heights, Md.

With a focus on the theoretical and practical aspects of reducing vessel fuel consumption, the two-day workshop will feature technical discussions from a Webb Institute professor of ship design and a representative of the Danish Shipowners Association.

Also on the agenda are presentations by the major suppliers of energy-efficiency technologies, as well as naval architects at the leading edge of vessel design.

The keynote speaker is Jeff Lantz of the Coast Guard, chairman of the International Marine Organization’s Council and lead of U.S. delegations to the International Maritime Organization’s Maritime Safety Committee and Marine Environmental Committee. He will provide an overview of the organization’s activities in this area.

Featured speakers from Scorpio Shipmanagement and Seacor will describe their real-world experience with ECO ships and designing, building and operating energy-efficient vessels. Measuring, monitoring and optimizing in-service performance will be the focus of a separate panel. Barriers to implementing energy-saving technologies will be addressed by one of the authors of a recent study of the topic conducted for the EC.
