Behind the name
Green Fleet express the combination of the environment and the shipping industry.
The leaf refers to the environmental protection
and the anchor to the vessels.
The design of this logo from scratch has achieve to be painted easily onboard vessel(stencil), without any difference from the original logo.
Our actions for the environmental protection and the use of innovative technology to our vessels, inspired the designer of the “Green Fleet” logo, to create a unique design.
As a person he is very active with environmental protection practices and he completely matched with our Company’s targets regarding this matter.
In his every day life and his work he use only recycled and eco friendly materials, as also used for the creation of our “Green fleet” logo.
The GreenFleet incorporates the innovative Samsung Vibration and Energy Reduction Fin, which reduces pressure contours and improves streamline while also reducing form drag. In other words, the vessels sail smoother in the water with less resistance, increasing efficiency.
The SAVER Fin increases speed and power performance by up to 5%. In addition, it reduces hull vibration by 30%.
Samsung Asymmetric Rudder Bulb SARB
The SARB, a new concept in rudder design, reduces rudder resistance and duct thrust and increases propeller efficiency. It also reduces kinetic energy loss and, because of Hub vortex reduction, increases propeller efficiency. SARB results in a more uniform propeller slip stream and decreased water speed. Overall results translate into a more efficient vessel. These changes alone provide a power savings of 1.5-2%. The GreenFleet enjoys a savings of between 392-522 kilograms of fuel every day. At the same time, CO2 emissions are also reduced daily by 1220 to 1625 kg.
Electronically Engine Propulsion
Vessel is equipted with the newest electronically engine propulsion from MAN B&W 6G60ME-C9.5 Tier II (Green). This engine is optimised to operate even with lower revolution and load than other older desigh achieving even betetr FOC and less enviromental foot print. Energy saving device have been fitted to enhance the propulsion efficiency in form of hull appendage.
New technology is rapidly boosting the efficiency and life of lighting systems. The GreenFleet uses advanced fluorescent lighting that converts more electricity to light (400% more). Plus, the light is more evenly distributed and glare is reduced.
Especially important is the reduction in heat generation. The new lighting gives off 2/3 to ¾ lessheat, significantly reducing the energy consumption and cost of on board air conditioning—as wellas the space needed for air con equipment.
Protected Oil Tanks
The Aegean GreenFleet has all its oil tanks located away from the ships side or bottom shell plating, an added precaution on these vessels. Adding protection to the oil tanks adds protection to the environment.DIST Suitability.
Ballast Water Management System
SAMSUNG, Purimar Ballast Water Management System of Electrolysis Disinfection type have been installed comply with the latest IMO & USCG regulations.
Old VS New
It all starts at the "Green" shipyard, where new technologies, new manufacturing processes, new materials, and new techniques have transformed the newbuilding process.
The operation of the Green fleet vessels is all about savings - to operators and to our environment. Fuel costs are +/- 30% less and CO2 emmisions are less. Onboard energy costs, from lighting to air conditioning, are less.
Triple R in action Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
New technologies allow us to build ships that use less material (and smarter material). Intentional design means that 9?% of all materials can be recycled or reused. Waste is out—Triple R is in.
Aegean’s Green Fleet vessels are built only with the most environmentally friendly materials, ensuring safe and eco-sensitive construction. And for the end of each ship’s service, construction materials are designed to be recycled to the greatest extent possible. What’s more, each vessel carries an Inventory of Hazardous Materials, so that at the time of decommissioning, the end of life ship is fully prepared for the safest and most effective recycling—to be done only at certified recycling facilities.
The EEDI, a design index to control CO2 emissions from ships, is an important new milestone in shipbuilding. The EEDI required minimum emissions for the GreenFleet class is 6.156 grams CO2. /tonne—nautical mile. The first vessel of Aegean’s GreenFleet, M/T Green Planet , has achieved 4.347 grams CO2 /tonne—nautical mile, 29.38% better than the minimum standard, placing it years ahead of forthcoming regulations. And of course fewer emissions translate into less fuel oil consumption. At almost 30%, that’s considerable.
Aegean’s Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) is one of most rigorous in the industry. And with the GreenFleet, it’s about to significantly improve. Energy efficiency is a win-win arrangement. Better energy efficiency means lower costs and higher returns, less negative environmental damage and more positive impact on our marine ecosystem.
