Future Ship Concepts

Future Ships Concepts:

  Over the last few years, maritime industry is undergoing a Green Revolution by adopting and developing eco-friendly technologies and vessels into the maritime market. These eco-friendly ships, along with ocean-safe practices will drive the industry towards a greener future and help in reducing the harmful effects of marine pollution.
Here is a list of the world’s future ships that are thought to bring some rapid changes into maritime industry in the coming years:-
1. Maersk’s Triple E- Vessels

When the 18000 TEU Triple-E container ships roll out in the market, they would be the biggest container ships in the world, featuring the finest green technologies with massive size.

2. NYK’s Eco Ship 2030

NYK’s Eco Ship 2030 is a bold ship concept, which will take modern ship building to an all new level.

The Eco Ship 2030 will run on fuel cell technology along with solar cells and wind sails.
3. STX Europe’s Eoseas is a five hulled pentamaran cruise ship concept by STX Europe.

The ship would use LNG-Diesel, Solar, and Wind energy to cut fuel consumption level. The vessel has an aim of reducing power consumption by 50%.

4. Eco Marine Power’s Wind-Solar Ship

The Eco Marine Power’s green ship project has been in the news for some time now.

When commissioned, it would be the first ship which would use rigid sails with photo voltaic cells, the Eco Marine Ship is surely one of the most promising future ships.

5. Shell’s FLNG – The Largest Floating Structure in the World

Shell is developing a Floating Liquefied Natural Gas Facility, which when complete in 2017, will be the world’s first FLNG development and the largest structure to float on high seas. 
6. Kawasaki Kisen’s Futuristic Car Carrier

The futuristic, next generation Kawasaki’s Kisen’s car carrier is one great ship, not just for its design but also for its “green quotient”.

The ship intends to cut carbon emission by 40 % and will be capable of carrying 2000 cars.

7. DNV’s Ecore
A concept launched together by FKAB, TGE Marine, Cargotec, and MAN Diesel & Turbo (DNV), ECore is a Very Large Ore Carrier (VLOC) which would not only lower  the fuel costs and emissions but also improve the loading efficiency.

8. Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics’ E/S Orcelle

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics’ E/S Orcelle is a concept of world’s first zero emission vessel. You heard it right – ZERO emission.
The E/S Orcelle, which is still under development with the Wallenius Wilhelmsen group, is to be launched in the next 20 years.

9. DNV’s Triality
DNV’s Triality is an eco-friendly Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) concept which aims at emitting 34% less carbon dioxide.

Triality concept will make use of the dual fuel slow speed engines and will not need any ballast water.

10. Sauter Carbon Offset Design (SCOD)’s Green Tanker – 75% Reduction of Harmful Emissions

Sauter Carbon Offset Design (SCOD) unique tanker vessel concept aims very high reduction percentage of the noxious greenhouse gases – up to 75%. The cargo vessel will utilize Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), sails and solar energy as fuelling sources. The ship will offer long-term benefit in terms of cost and utility efficiency.
