Part of the learning objective is to improve awareness of bridge and engine room practices (contributing to overall vessel efficiency and fuel savings). The importance of department communication is highlighted throughout the course. Inevitably, the cost of fuel is likely to rise in the future. The goal is to promote targeted savings on ship operations annually, thus, resulting to reduction on CO2 emissions. In the training, the crew’s motivation and commitment is discussed as being crucial in creating an energy efficiency culture within the company.
The course was piloted in 2012. Up to date, 800+ deck and engine officers as well as technical and marine superintendents have gone through the program.
