Abstract

TRIPOD deals with energy saving in waterborne transport. It explores the feasibility of a novel propulsion
concept resulting from the integration of two promising technologies (podded propulsion and tip loaded endplate
propellers) in combination with energy recovery based on counter rotating propeller (CRP) principle. New ways
of saving energy are studied to improve ship operational costs. The paper describes the main objectives and the
different phases of the project, including the design activities, validation of the concept by model testing and
numerical computations, and the economic analysis of main results. The main focus is on the development of a
tool for the assessment of the overall energy balance in the ship design phase and on the application of the new
propulsion concept to several ship fleets. Energy savings and consequently emission reductions are derived from
the use of the analysis tool.
