Greening and decarbonization of marine operations poise many dilemmas and questions to shipowners and managers. Most commonly, owners should first select a set of technologies to assess and then to evaluate the financial burden of the decision.
Decision Support Tool (Kúhne Logistics University)
The Decision Support Tool facilitates ship owners' decision-making about deploying a Wind-Assisted Ship Propulsion Technology on board a vessel. The tool combines the research results of the WASP project and case-specific parameters that shipowners and other stakeholders can fill in. The aim of the tool is to compare different WASP technologies based on several factors and different scenarios and to determine the best option for the specific business case.
