Abstract This project focused on developing a range of highly efficient concept vessels by combining data and modelling techniques from academia with commercial knowledge and technology development expertise from industry. The project was delivered by Rolls-Royce with support from University College London (UCL). The work carried out by UCL was undertaken by researchers from both the UCL Energy Institute and UCL Mechanical Engineering.

The project completed the creation and integration of a full- scale shipping model that is focused on the activity of and the vessels involved in the UK’s sea-based transportation needs. This has leveraged Rolls-Royce technology knowledge at a vessel level and combined it with UCL’s capabilities to understand and model the shipping network. It has built upon the Low Carbon Shipping project led by UCL and funded in part by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
