Conference Paper
Full-text available
Because of strict environmental regulations, researchers are obligated to develop and apply alternative energy sources for ships. There are various possible alternatives for merchant ships. Fuel cells may be one of the alternatives with their fewer hazardous emissions. This study aims to investigate fuel cells' availability for merchant ships as an...
Article
The maritime industry leading organization International Maritime Organization (IMO) is bringing more and more restrictive and effective rules on reducing greenhouse gas and air polluting emissions since the significant portion of the greenhouse gas emissions in the world are caused by commercial vessels. Therefore, an alternative energy source is...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Maritime transportation is the most efficient transportation type. Despite, maritime transportation is an effective way to transport goods and passengers, fossil fuels are still in use. Ammonia and hydrogen are promising alternative fuels for the complete decarbonization of maritime transportation with their zero-carbon content and they are also su...
Article
Increasing environmental concerns are driving the shipping industry to take strict measures to deal with greenhouse gas emissions. International Maritime Organization drives the industry to find more efficient and environmentally friendly power systems. To mitigate harmful emissions, researches on marine alternative fuels, operational improvements...
Article
Global warming and greenhouse gas emissions are today's major challenges for sustainable industrial developments, and shipping is an important key element of the industrial chain. However, maritime transportation is responsible for 3.1% of total CO 2 emissions worldwide, and International Maritime Organization estimates that it will continue to inc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Shipping transportation is under the pressure of eliminating ship-sourced harmful emissions. In this perspective, alternative fuels and eco-friendly power generation technologies are gaining importance for sustainable shipping. Today, hydrogen as a fuel and fuel cells as power generation technology are under investigation by the maritime industry a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Çanakkale Strait is a difficult waterway with heavy commercial and local ship traffic. Also, the strait has great importance from environmental, historical, and economic perspectives. 1915 Çanakkale Bridge is located in one of the riskiest parts of the strait in terms of navigational safety. In addition, since the bridge piers are located in th...
Article
The typical negative effects of prolonged slow steaming operations are investigated in this study. The scope of the research is to examine the effects of the carbon deposit formation on piston rings (lack of sealing function), exhaust boiler (reduction in the heat recovery capacity), turbocharger (lack of scavenging capacity), and injector, due to...
Chapter
Shipping is the most energy-efficient way for the transportation of goods and it has a substantial role in the global economy. The vast majority of the ships are addicted to fossil fuels as an energy source due to economic advantages, strong bunkering nets, and well-experienced operations of marine diesel engines. However, environmental concerns dr...
Article
The study investigates marine engineering education on alternative fuels and hybrid propulsion regarding decarbonisation of shipping. A new course is proposed for maritime education and training subject to the IGF Code amendments to the STCW which lasts 14 weeks and 3 h per week. Competences at the STCW amendments for the persons who work on altern...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Maritime transportation is under the pressure of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from ships. The rule-maker of the maritime industry, International Maritime Organization tightens the bond around ships to eliminate harmful exhaust emissions due to environmental concerns. Considering chemical properties, the use of hydrogen in ships may be a soluti...
Article
Full-text available
Since sea transportation is one of the sources of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, so restrictive regulations are entering into force by the International Maritime Organisation to cope with the ship sourced emissions. Alternative energy generating systems are one of the key concepts and fuel cells can be one of the solutions for the futu...
