Abstract [en]


This chapter is an essay that describes the role of shipping from a historical point of view as well as the impact of shipping on society.


This chapter is a projection of a ship that can transport 120 000 tonnes of crude oil from Venezuela to Seattle in the United states. The result of this projection is two ship that is 265 meters long and 40 meters wide that transport 80 000 tonnes of oil to Seattle before returning to Venezuela. This journey will take 40 days with a speed of 13 knots. The ship fufillls all regulations that it needs to fufilll.


This chapter focuses on a request for information issued by Stockholm county council concerning public transport on water. The routes covered in this report are those planned for Malaren. These routes are at the time for writing of this report non existing. From this RFI, the authors of this chapter have developed three different ships, two catamarans and one single hull vessel, that carry between 70 and 150 persons. The catamarans have the dimensions of 10 x 25 meters with four or six doors each. The doors are 2,5 meters wide, which allow for fast embarkment and disembarkment. The single hull vessel is 20 x 6 meters and has only one door. The catamarans are partially driven by electricity, which is in line with Stockholm county council's vision of a vehicle fleet driven by 90% renewable fuels. To accommodate these ships in port, a pier concept has also been conceived. This pier is a floating one, with automatic gang planks which hold theship in place, when in port.
