Green Shipping Simulator Game
- Date published
- 31 March 2011
The green shipping simulator is a game developed to show the
user the relationship between power, speed, fuel consumption and
CO2 emissions in a fun and intuitive way. Also, it shows the
savings that can be made when the power is adjusted to ETA, instead
of sailing 100% to the destination and anchoring to avoid arriving
The speed and power relationships are based on full scale trials
in 2010 on a 100m UK hopper dredger. The map and destinations are
based on nautical maps. The fuel consumption and possible savings
in the game are therefore realistic.
The game is aimed for deck officers and shore management of
shipping companies, particularly those operated by the UK Crown
estate, for which the game is developed. The game is part of the
MEPF project 10/P145, and is described in the attached report
'Report P145 environmental impacts on dredger operations Ph2, ref.
24189.501-TM.pdf', which addresses carbon (and fuel) reduction
measures for the existing UK hopper dredger fleet.
