Shipping industry is permanently developing and now it is entering an absolutely new era. From now on, all ships will be obliged to sail not only safely but also with maximum energy efficiency. Energy efficiency has always been treated as a very important factor in shipping. Many shipping companies, certain ships and even individual crew members have all made significant efforts to reduce energy consumption on board their ships.
However, now energy efficiency must be considered a key factor of all shipping operations. The fundamental reason for this is cost saving. Reducing energy use saves money for the ship and the company. Obviously, should something go wrong with this, the costs will rise for the shipping company. That is why there is an increased competition for the cost saving though more efficient use of the fuel.
Another critically important factor is that increase of the energy efficiency will eventually lead to the reduced emission of the carbon dioxide considered one of the most serious environmental problems. The present video supplements the training booklet on the same problem and you are encouraged to use both of them as a set in order to achieve better training results.
