Operation of POD Ships - Discussion on Efficiency comparing Conventional and IN-OUT POD strategy


published on 8 June 2022 205 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "ISSIMS - Innovative Ship Simulation". Originally published on 2021-12-17.
In this movie the efficiency of two different pod operation strategies is compared: With azimuth propeller ships the Pods can be used in two ways to control the speed, e.g. for speed reduction:
1. by adjusting the engine orders, e.g. by reducing the RPMs to get lower speed - this means to drive the ship in the same conventional way as for twin screw vessels,
2. by turning both pods either in- or outward (TOE-IN or TOE-OUT) to reduce the forward thrust and therefore reducing the speed – the engine settings are not changed and kept constant.
In this movie the efficiency of both strategies will be compared with respect to fuel consumption for a scenario for a port arrival manoeuvre using the Fast Time Simulation in the SAMMON Planning tool. The result is: for the conventional strategy the fuel consumption is only one third as of the TOE-IN strategy.
By the way, these movies open up a series of contributions specifically addressing pod operation – please let me know if you have proposals / wishes for the next topic!

Video How Ship Anchor Works? - Procedure For Anchoring a Ship at Sea

published on 11 July 2020

While the type of seabed is of utmost importance during anchoring, soft muddy grounds or clay bottoms are best preferred. It should be taken care that the anchoring bottom is free of power lines, submarine cables, pipelines or rocks. Various methods on anchoring include consideration of...
