Abstract

Traditionally the onboard systems of the ship are designed on past experience and standardization. The current requirement for energy efficiency improvements requires a fresh look in their design process, based on first principles and prescribed goals, i.e. Goal Based Design (GBD). In this paper this approach is applied on the cargo and ballasting systems of an oil tanker, using a newly developed simulation tool. The tool will be integrated in a multi-objective optimization procedure. All the involved design and operational parameters and constraints have been taken into account in order to produce realistic results. These can be useful for both for the designer and the operator, supporting the decision making process onboard the ship.
