Year of labeling 2009 - Joint Certification by Pôles Mer Bretagne & EMC2
Year of co-financing 2010

This will:

  • Perform actual measurements in different configurations in order to precisely evaluate the energy consumption points and actual emissions associated by integrating the operational practices of the crews
  • Define an environmental and energy performance simulator for the ship which can be used for the purpose of optimizing the design
  • Define, design and implement a decision support system for crews and ship owners to measure energy consumption and atmospheric emissions but offering in real-time, depending on the mission, ways of optimizing emissions
