The watchwords that dictate the business agenda of shipping companies are decarbonization, efficiency by design, and operational optimization. There are many new technologies and concepts presently being developed, but the success of a specific design will depend on its economical sustainability, technical simplicity (that translates into reliability and operational/maintenance effectiveness), and availability of the selected fuels.

RINA is cooperating with industry leaders on an innovative ship design for a very large crude carrier (VLCC), with an unprecedented efficiency and extremely low carbon profile-whilst maintaining cargo capacity. We are working on this design concept together with Wärtsilä, global leader in smart propulsion technologies and complete lifecycle solutions, ABB, leading provider of electrical power distribution and automation, MARIN, one of the leading hydrodynamic research institutes in the maritime industry, the Liberian Administration for the support on statutory matters and a major energy company. The vessel is being designed at Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding.
