  • Study of historical trends in ship design efficiency 2016

    The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) is currently engaged in a review of the 2020 target of its ship design efficiency standard (known as the EEDI). One of the main questions being addressed is whether the stringency of the regulation should be retained or amended. Another issue is the effectiveness of existing EEDI targets in driving design efficiency improvements.

    This study analyses which factors have contributed to changes in the average design efficiency over time and what their relative importance has been.
