The improvement of Ship Energy Efficiency has been a major issue for the global Shipping Industry for two reasons; primarily, because the fuel expenses of ships are a major part of the ship’s total expenses and secondly, because of the great amounts of Greenhouse Gases that ships emit. GHG emission control measures such as EEDI, SEEMP & MBM were IMO’s answer to the problem. These measures are of growing concern in the shipping community. The objective of this Diploma Thesis is to contribute to the indication of methods and techniques which can improve the Energy Efficiency of existing ships and is focused on identifying the shortcomings of regulations and to assess their effect on the environment and Industry, with special emphasis on the optimization of routing and navigation through two methods «Virtual Arrival» and "Weather Routing».
