Objective

Podded Propulsors for ships offer significant economic, safety and environmental advantages but their behaviour in service conditions i.e.in extreme weather, emergency manoeuvres and due to long term loading, is yet unknown. This project is aiming at the development of design, engineering and certification methods for extreme, fatigue and incident loads in pods and ship. To this end an extensive full scale monitoring campaign onboard three ships will be conducted during their operations. The measured loads together with laboratory research on specific cases will be used to develop and validate the load calculation models methods and standards. These results will be implemented in the design, engineering and certification by the involved pod manufactures, yards and classification societies.
