Abstract: This paper describes a tool to predict the power consumption of a ship with battery-supported propulsion on a given route under consideration of (statistically varying) environmental ambient conditions. The tool can be used in conceptual design of ships with such hybrid propulsion systems. It may also be used for decision support in operation. At the heart of the tool is a fast, but flexible manoeuvring simulation tool that allows also inclusion of port manoeuvres. Operational parameters, such as intended speed profiles, are user-specified, while ambient parameters (such as wave height and direction) are statistically varied to reflect realistic long-term conditions on given routes.
