Installing Technologies of the Future
Following the detailed outlook of the various technologies and shipping aspects developed during the first year of CHEK, the installation of these technologies has started taking place. At design level, the digital master (2nd generation model) of future-proof Kamsarmax and Meraviglia vessels has been built based on real operational data of the Kamsarmax bulker and Meraviglia cruise ship, targeting the optimisation of ship performance with regards to emissions through digital design means. The combination of this digital master with real-life data will lead to the development of a ‘Digital Twin’ which will include the design of experiments to be conducted in real vessel demonstrations.
CHEK research project demonstrates cutting edge solutions to decarbonise global shipping
The EU-funded CHEK project (deCarbonising sHipping by Enabling Key technology symbiosis on real vessel concept designs), which proposes to reach zero emissions shipping by reconfiguring the way ships are designed and operated today, has officially launched.
