Abstract

This paper describes an environmental footprint calculation system created for the evaluation of environmental impacts associated with shipbuilding and ship operations. Existing Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methods were applied in the study. LCA is a standardised technique to assess environmental aspects and potential impacts associated with a product, process, or service. Life Cycle Cost (LCC) calculation is another technique developed for gaining an insight into the LCC considerations of systems. The objective is an integrated approach to support LCA and LCC comparisons between design and operation alternatives of ships. The evaluation can be done already at the conceptual and early engineering design phases and thus the results can be used for guiding the designers, as well as the ship owners, in their quest to make environmentally and economically sustainable choices. For the analysis of the shipbuilding phase, an existing lifecycle software KCL-ECO was utilised. For the operational phase, a specific computer tool has been created to help designers investigate the economic and environmental implications of alternative solutions
