The development of the electric ship concept is a challenge. Given the innovativeness of the project, the Croatian Register of Shipping, as the umbrella organization for the approval of project (classification) documentation, requires expert analysis of hull resistance and power of the ship's propulsion.
In the process of approving the project (classification) documentation, the Croatian Register of Shipping takes into account the experiences and analyzes of similar vessels, which in this case are diesel-powered vessels with higher power. Electro-propulsion in electric ships presupposes less power, but greater efficiency.
In order to prove the above and for the Croatian Register of Shipping to accept the specific power of the ship's propulsion for a certain area of navigation, it is necessary to conduct an expert analysis of the hull resistance and propulsion power.
The results of expert analysis of hull resistance and propulsion power of the ship will enable the development of a new concept and electric passenger ship that provides sailing autonomy up to 10 hours a day using its own energy sources from a solar power plant integrated on the ship's roof.
The project goal
find the optimal solution in terms of driving an electric ship for the intended area of navigation and the conditions in which the ship should sail.
In order to obtain such a solution, an expert analysis of hull resistance and propulsion power was conducted, based on which the Croatian Register of Shipping, as the umbrella organization for approval of project (classification) documentation, will accept the project of electric passenger ship for navigation in the Adriatic sea.
