Professor: No doubt that eco-tankers pay off

There is no discussion that building eco-design tankers is a good idea. Building eco-ships is the right investment for shipowners and may save them for as much as 10 to 15 percent on costs, Professor at the Technical University of Denmark, Hans Otto Kristensen, assesses.

Shipowners should not have any trouble choosing between eco-designs and non eco-designs. The former is without a doubt a good investment according to Professor at the Technical University of Denmark, Hans Otto Kristensen, who has examined advantages and disadvantages of eco-designs.

“Investing in eco-designs pays off in the long run. The investment does not have to be in high technology but often simple improvements in ship design which will be beneficial for the shipowners is enough. It is all about carefully thinking out the ship design and by adjusting a ship’s dimensions, shipowners will be able to save 10 to 15 percent of the oil consumption”, Hans Otto Kristensen tells ShippingWatch.
