Fleet scheduling

GreenerScheduling4004 is a software program that will estimate emissions a fleet of vessels generate when it is scheduled on a commercial basis.
Trades and cargoes are specified by load port, discharge port, cargo intake, freight rate etc
Ships are specified by speed, fuel consumption, dwt, NOX, CO2, SO2 and other parameters.
Firstly all voyages are calculated with days at sea, days in port, cargo loaded, freight revenue and TC result pr day for each voyage.
GreenerScheduling4004 will then calculate the total amount of fuel consumed and the total kwh output of engines
Estimate the emissions based on data for the fuel type and the engine specifications.
If costs for emissions are specified,
GreenerScheduling4004 will take this into consideration when finding an optimal schedule for the fleet.

A brief Executive presentation of Greener Scheduling4004

Full presentation of GreenerScheduling4004

Emissions from ships is an increasingly important factor to take into account for all shipowning and operating companies. Fuel costs now account for up to 70% of operating costs shipowners therefore have a strong incentive to reduce their fuel consumption

The industry has also made efforts to increase fuel efficiency as a way of reducing shipping's environmental impact. Continuing developments in engine, hull and propeller design and the use of larger ships have been helping to deliver greater efficiencies in fuel oil consumption.
GreenerScheduling4004 is a tool that will minimize fuel consumption and thus fuel emissions

Shipping activities contribute significantly to the air pollution all over the world.
Gases that effect climate change include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). Ship engines also produce other air pollutants such as carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs), particulate matter, and sulphur dioxide (SO2).

  • the amount of emissions produced is primarily a function of

  • the amount of fuel consumed,

  • the characteristics of the fuel,

  • the engine technology employed, and any post-combustion emission controls in place.

Steps in typical usage
Step 1 – Make a commercial fleet schedule (1 to 12 months period)
Calculating voyage estimates for all cargoes and ships in the fleet
Step 2 – Calculate the quantity of emissions from such schedule
Provide management with an estimate of what pollutants the fleet is generating
Step 3 – Calculate the cost of emissions
These can be costs as they are today or future expected costs that will be imposed on the shipping industry
Step 4 – Let
GreenerScheduling4004 find an "optimal" schedule that maximizes the fleet’s TC result and minimizes emissions
GreenerScheduling4004 will enable the operator to find a schedule that will minimize air emissions and in this way comply with regulations.
