REDUCED SHIP LENGTH BY OPTIMAL ELECTRIC PLANT DESIGN

The optimization of the propulsion and auxiliary services or the realization of innovative systems allow space saving, weight reduction and ship shortening. A rigorous procedure in the design stage is proposed and a case study is presented. The authors suggest a methodology for the optimum engine room location and the method is applied to a 32,500 DWT product carrier. The results and the lay out rearrangements are presented and discussed.
