Elomatic’s contribution for the project is/was:
- Basic and Detailed engineering work for the ship electric and automation systems
- Calm Water Hull Form Optimisation
The hull form optimized with CFD calculations for the design draught and for minimal fuel consumption in deep water considering the operational speed profile of the vessel. Good seakeeping and manoeuvring characteristics, low propeller induced pressure pulses and low noise levels were also taken into consideration. Particular attention was paid on bow flare angles to avoid excessive wave impacts at high seas.
The aftbody and orientation of hull appendages and openings was optimised using RANS-CFD. Streamlines over the hull surface and appendages, especially in way of the transverse thruster tunnels, bilge keels, and headboxes of azimuth propulsors were calculated by RANS-CFD.
