This paper surveys one steamship line's successful energy conservation program. The development of a new staff position by senior management and the actual role of the energy conservation manager are explored in detail. Specific vessel design and operational deficiencies are described as discovered and corrected. A program of capital expenditures to reduce vessel fuel consumption, covering all aspects of both marine engineering and operations is then outlined. Bunker availability, price, and quality trends are reviewed and related to overall technical and economic considerations. Finally, the results of the first twelve months of this program are summarized and related to future benefits to be derived from studies presently in progress.
