Ship-owners considering an investment in wind-assisted propulsion are faced with numerous questions. C-Job’s own long-term research, supplemented by additional graduate studies, means that they are the go-to partner for ship-owners looking for independent advice.
C-Job’s new Buckling Tool allows ship structures to be optimised at the earliest stages of Concept Design. It also gives a better understanding of plated structures in Basic and Detail Design. Lead Naval Architect Nikos Papapanagiotou explains how.
C-Job has launched its global sulphur cap Compliance Tool. For ship owners operating in any maritime sector, the tool is an easy-to-use and free way to find out the most effective method of complying with the International Maritime Organization’s global sulphur cap that will come into effect on 1 January 2020.
In April 2018 the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from shipping. Even though these goals are focused a long way into the future, C-Job’s Technical Director Tim Vlaar picks out some highlights from the company’s portfolio to demonstrate an already proven track record and a truly forward-thinking approach.
C-Job foresees the need for renewable future-proof fuels and has identified ammonia to be one of the high potentials. Therefore, the company is working on concept ship designs integrating ammonia as a fuel reviewing options with both combustion engines and fuel cells.
C-Job’s Research & Development team is using AIS position data to reconstruct a vessel’s operational profile. R&D Engineer Matthys Dijkman: “With this knowledge we can design better vessels that are optimally matched to their operational requirements.”
