GL Academy Hellas is offering on 30 August 2012, a one-day workshop on Voyage Optimization. Fuel efficient vessel operation is a key business objective, reducing operational expenses to the unavoidable minimum. This can be achieved through effective awareness trainings, basic education, suitable supporting tools and meaningful follow up by the onshore organisation. The Voyage Optimisation course is tailored to onshore personnel that have to support the fleet in fuel efficient actions. The course covers fuel efficient voyage planning taking into account safe operation, weather and contractual requirements. Participants are made aware of options to lower consumption and gain deeper insight into the specifics of weather routing, rudder and autopilot use, ballast water use and speed setting. Challenges when selecting supporting tools and integrating new routines into daily operation are discussed.
The objective of the course is to expand the participants’ knowledge on efficient operation. This knowledge will enable them to take better decisions during their job as energy managers. Specifically, the tasks of system/tool selection, communication with crews and maintaining the SEEMP will be addressed. Participants gain helpful knowledge for negotiations with suppliers and contract partners.
Emphasis will be given on:
Factors influencing energy consumption en route
Concrete options to support efficient operation: Chances and limitations
Integration into daily operation and fleet management
