Corsica Ferries to begin Decarbonisation Modelling

Two vessels in the Corsica Ferries fleet are to undergo a Decarbonisation Modelling process with Wärtsilä, creating a digital model of the two ships to simulate the effect of various decarbonisation technologies on their environmental performance.

The service combines data-driven assessments with expert advice and recommendations, to assist operators in choosing the optimal methods to move towards decarbonised operations with cost-effective investments.

The results of the modelling process will be used by the ferry operator to evaluate the efficiency gains possible through the implementation of different systems to improve environmental performance on the ‘Mega Express’ and ‘Mega Express II’, both 176 metre-long sister vessels.

“It is a huge benefit to be able to simulate in advance how various products, solutions, and systems will impact efficiency. This will help us in our efforts to decarbonise fleet operations and meet our sustainability goals,” said Nicolò Verrina, Energy Transition Naval Architect & Ocean Engineer, Corsica Ferries.

“We respect Wärtsilä’s experience and capabilities and are pleased to continue the good relationship between our companies with this modelling programme.”
