Power & Propulsion Alternatives for Ships – RINA Call for Papers

November 2017, Rotterdam   Call for Papers

The current use of alternative fuels and renewable energy sources within the shipping industry is still relatively low. Growing environmental legislation and concerns are driving the need to develop and apply innovative alternative power and propulsion technology for ships. The industry must embrace the challenger of designing cleaner lower carbon emission ship. This conference seeks to investigate some of these alternatives, including;

  • Wind powered or wind assisted propulsion
  • Alternative fuel systems: LNG, methanol, hydrogen, etc
  • Renewable fuels; biofuels, ethanol, Dimethyl Ether (DME) algae-based fuel, etc
  • Pure electric and hybrid electric propulsion
  • Batteries and fuel cells
  • Solar power

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their paper for publication in the International Journal of Maritime Engineering.
