On-Line Data Acquisition System

Α series of decisions are required during a trip in order to optimize parameters like duration, fuel consumption, safety, etc. These decisions are expected to be based on real-time data. Laros data acquisition acquires a massive number of ship's real-time data to be sent online to Danaos’ HQs for further analysis.

Trademark: LAROS
Status: A
Resources: DAS R&D, Software engineers
Impact Description: more than 15,000 data per minute

Bulbous Bow Modification

Operation profiling has changed, and ship's speed requirements have dropped significantly. Bulbous bow modification optimizes hull behavior and is, the most efficient way to improve the ship's performance.

Status: D&A
Resources: DAS R&D, Hull designers, CFD analysts,research institute engineers, model testing stuff
What applies to ship's area: Existing ship's bulbous bow is replaced with a new bow properly tuned and optimized at lower speeds.

Propeller's Optimization

Existing propellers are optimized for higher engine loads. Therefore, a study for propeller optimization was performed and changes were applied where necessary to optimize ship's performance.

Status: D&A
Resources: DAS R&D, MAN B&W & Kappel designers, research institute engineers, model testing stuff
What applies to ship's area:  Existing propellers are optimized for higher engine loads. Therefore, a study for propeller optimization was performed and changes were applied where necessary.
Impact description: FOC savings in the range of 5-7%

Appendages (Fins , Rudder Bulb, PBCF)

With the use of appendages, the flow around a propeller can be optimized to allow the propeller to work more efficiently. The field is open to various studies. Danaos' R&D department evaluated various options, some of which have been applied to various new building vessels or as retrofits based on relative studies.

Status: A
Resources: Shipyard designers, makers engineers
What applies to ship's area: Applied to ships stern boss and/or rudder
Impact description: In the range of 1 %
