The step-by-step guide for estimating the effect of hull fouling in ship performance with nothing but just a few underwater photos

ByTimoleon Plessas

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A technical manual for Captains, Chief Engineers, Vessel Operators, Superintended Engineers, Fleet Managers, Naval Engineers and everyone working in the shipping industry for the assessment of vessel’s performance based ONLY on observed fouling (NO noon reports, NO sensors, NO high-frequency data). After reading this book you will be able to: -Identify the 5 main categories of fouling -Estimate the expected power increase due to observed fouling -Estimate the expected additional fuel consumption due to fouling -Predict the expected effect of fouling after X months -Manage hull cleaning scheduling more effectively Applicable to: -Tankers (2,000 to 330,000 t DWT) -Bulk Carriers (1,000 to 330,000 t DWT) -General Cargo Ships (2,000 to 45,000 t DWT) -OBO Carriers (60,000 to 160,000 t DWT) -Containerships (400 to 12,000 TEU) -LNG Carriers (125,000 to 260,000 m3 Capacity) -RORO Ships (500 to 5,000 Lanemeters) -RORO/Passenger Ships (70 to 200 m Length) -Chemical Carriers (5,000 to 50,000 t DWT) -Reefer Ships (2,500 to 18,000 m3 Capacity)
