With the IMO’s 2020 sulphur regulations on the horizon, shipowners face a growing list of options to ensure their vessels remain ‘seaworthy’. Yet the most popular solutions – LNG, scrubbers, low-sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) – all have significant drawbacks. There is an uncertainty about the availability of LSFO, major ports are banning open loop scrubbers, while retrofitting a vessel for LNG is costly and the bunkering infrastructure still limited.

Over the past few years the International Salvage Union (ISU) has sought to reposition itself in a changing maritime environment. The Lloyd’s Open Form salvage contract (LOF) – the standard contract between the shipowner and salvor in the event of an incident requiring intervention – has been in decline as modern communications allow shipowners and marine insurers alike to assimilate more information faster. This means the emergency response can be tailored accordingly and avoid costly salvor fees for services, for example for towage, which may not have been required. Increasingly the preference is for bespoke, fixed price services, greatly diminishing the salvors earnings from any operation.

Force Technology has been complementing its towing tank and wind tunnel facilities with mathematical modelling services for 40 years. By the 1990s the synergy of these capabilities – taking measurements of both external forces and internal forces – made it possible to offer simulation services for training and analysis purposes. However, performing calculations on hullform in a real-time simulation has long been hampered by the computational power required to perform this accurately.
