Analyzing the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) performance of a container ship

Aydın TOKUŞLU [1]


The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted a new regulation to prevent air pollution from ship emissions which concentrated on reducing green gas emissions from shipping for existing ships, and energy efficiency measures for the new ship. This new regulation imposes a measure which is called Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI). This measure aims to reduce CO2 emissions and global environmental pollution by using fewer fossil fuels and less greenhouse gas emissions. EEDI is an implementation for all new ships larger than 400 GT. In this paper, one of the container ships in the Turkish maritime trade fleet was investigated and its emissions were estimated. The Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) of the ship was calculated. Some useful proposals have been presented to reduce the harmful effects of CO2 exhaust gas emission.
