Minimizing Ship Weight and an Investigation of Sustainability

Y. Amer, R. Wang and L.D. Abdullatif

Abstract

This study discusses the use of green energy and new materials for ship building. We investigate the issue of lowering ship fuel consumption through using high steel plates instead of normal steel plates, propose the use of ‘green fuels’ (gas fuels) as a source of inboard power and discuss the possible utilization of solar energy and wind power for support engine fuel and power usage on vessels.
