Design, Construction & Operation of Super & Mega Yachts 2011


The luxury yacht sector has not been unnaffected by the global financial situation, but it has survived in good form and is growing again.  New regulations are being developed to deal with the increasing size of vessels and these are both helping and challenging designers and builders of the latest generation of yachts.  This growth in size and complexity coupled with the new technologies becoming available bring new challenges requiring innovative solutions.

 Bulk Carriers 2009


In recent years the industry has been through a commercially unprecedented period and been subject to major regulatory change. Both commercial and regulatory influences have presented many technical challenges and many more lay ahead. 

Designers, classification societies and owners have faced the challenges posed by the introduction of the Common Structural Rules. Goal Based Standards have been developed further at IMO with the final elements expected to be finalised this year. Also at IMO, new schedules have been added to the IMSBC Code (formally BC Code) which will become mandatory in January 2011 and the BLU Code is currently under review to include grain and consider issues associated with high loading rates. 
Environmental regulation is also moving forward with the revision to MARPOL Annex VI placing further restrictions on emissions of NOx and SOx. The development of the IMO Energy Efficiency Design Index is aimed at stimulating technical innovation in propulsive efficiency as the industry strives to reduce its CO2 emissions.

 Influence of EEDI on Ship Design 2014


The reduction of CO2 emissions has been a key target in the Marine Industry since the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee published its findings in 2009. From which a number of measures resulting in technical and operational reductions were made mandatory in 2011. Foremost amongst these measures; nearly all new builds have to conform to the limits of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).
