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


published on 8 June 2022 209 -

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

#Anchor #shipanchor #windlass Anchoring is one of the very frequent operations onboard ships. A number of variables and external factors influence the duration and location of an anchoring operation. 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...

Video Dynamic failure of pilot boats: Risk mitigation & management

published on 12 December 2020

Following a surf riding and broaching incident and subsequent collision by an experienced vessel operator, QinetiQ have been undertaking extensive investigations into the risk mitigation and safety management of pilotage operations. This presentation looks to discuss the risks presented during pilotage services, and provide a critical review of vessel design and service delivery approaches to understand the potential risk mitigations and management of pilot boat safety.

Opinion 1000 stanchions around… Which ones are correct and which ones are killers?

by Arie Palmers - published on 6 December 2022

Stanchions therefore are an often-overlooked part of a pilot transfer arrangement and therefore I
want to give them more attention in this article. They proved to be the cause of a whole series of accidents, some of which were even fatal.

Video Introduction to Pilotage

published on 6 January 2021

Pilotage is being able to navigate safely into and out of a harbour/anchorage/port knowing where you are at all times, where your hazards are and a safe route in/out. This is particularly useful if you are heading into somewhere new or a challenging/busy area – or both!
