Energy optimisation is recognised as one of the key ways to reduce the environmental impact of shipping and at the same time generate cost savings.  At KNUD E. HANSEN we have a range of innovative techniques and state-of-the-art software that evaluate the projected energy usage on newbuildings and the actual usage on existing vessels and identify potential design and operational improvements.  Audits, designs, and management plans are tailored specifically for each project to optimise returns.  We offer the following services to help clients reach their energy-saving goals.


  • Design Services
