SimFWD has been providing to customers a range of Advanced Engineering Services related to Ship Design. These services have nowadays become relevant to EEXI (Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index) requirements:
– SHIP HYDRODYNAMICS
– PROPELLER DESIGN
– VIBRATION AND ACOUSTICS
– ENERGY SAVING DEVICE (ESD) ASSESSMENT
– PERFORMANCE BENCHMARKING
– OVERALL RETROFITTING

SimFWD has accumulated experience on Ship Hydrodynamic Analysis from Newbuilding and Retrofitting projects of Tankers, Bulk Carriers and Passenger Vessels. The most common ESDs on Tankers are Mewis Ducts or other type of ducts in front of the propellers as well as Boss Cap Fins. Other ESDs consisting only of swirl-eliminating fins are rated less effective due to generally low propeller pitch and hence low swirl losses on these propellers.

SimFWD can assist Clients in EEXI evaluation by means of Propulsion power demand and associated emissions combined with the rest of energy components into a standalone EEXI monitoring and reporting application. Contact us at info@simfwd.com for more information.
