TU Delft is the largest technical university in the Netherlands and covers practically the entire spectrum of engineering sciences. The total 8 faculties offer 16 bachelor’s and more than 30 master’s programmes. The Department of Maritime and Transport Technology at the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE) develops solutions addressing global challenges relating to rapid urbanisation, growing energy demand, increasing air pollution, climate change, and raw material shortage.

Ishy project activities

TU Delft’s primary focus in the project is the development of a methodology to choose the powertrain components of optimum power rating and technology for a hybrid vessel in order to reduce its CO2 emissions. This involves establishment of a comprehensive overview of components (including those considered by the ISHY pilot partners), the development of a library of component models, and the methodology to choose the optimal component and as such provide the means for ship design decision support. This potential of the methodology will be assessed during support of the design decisions of the ISHY pilot partners.
