Planning and Consultation
The process of the creation of the Ecoship has been consultative and collaborative every step of the way. The Hamburg Charrette held in April 2014 in Hamburg brought together over 30 engineers, scientists and experts from the fields of ship-building and eco-technology. The participants were divided into three interdisciplinary working groups focusing on:
- Minimizing Propulsion and Consumption Power
- Minimizing Hotel Load and Hotel Energy
- Mass Flows & Closed Loops
The results of which were incorporated a ‘whole-system’ design proposal.
