Abstract

Speed optimisation or speed management has been an attractive topic in the shipping industry for a long time. Traditional methods rely on masters’ experience. Some recent methods are more efficient but have many constraints, which preclude obtaining an optimum speed profile. This paper introduces a relatively advanced model for global speed optimisation towards energy efficient shipping in various weather conditions and shows the effect when the method is employed. With this model, if a ship type, departure and destination ports and fixed ETA (Estimated Time Arrival) are given, the stakeholders can be provided with a more reasonable speed operation plan for a certain commercial route, which leads to lower fuel consumption. Weather conditions and, hence, routing plays a very important role in this process. Several case studies over different shipping conditions are considered to validate the model.
