9:45 AM - 10:15 AM OPTIMISED OPV PROPULSION CONFIGURATIONS – PERFORMANCE, CAPEX & OPEX CONSIDERATIONS

Neil Vaughan, Governmental Segment Manager, Caterpillar Marine, Governmental Segment Manager, Caterpillar Marine
As funding for governmental projects reduces the End User is looking towards equipment manufacturers to maintain system expenditure (CAPEX) while reducing operational through life costing (OPEX). This presentation identifies different methods of achieving those results using predominantly existing technology while exploring the use of emerging concepts and evaluating current paradigms. In particular:
· The use of high speed, highly turbocharged engines in CODAD configuration
· The complimentary use of electric PTI for operations involving loitering (CODELOD/CODELAD)
· Variable speed power generation and directly coupled electric motors

· Multipurpose vessels provide great flexibility to naval forces, but setting the required capabilities to ensure the ability to deliver for most missions, without raising the cost by catering for all missions, remains a challenging balancing act
· Lessons have been learnt from past procurements – but, what are they? Have the correct lessons been learnt? What missions should a multipurpose vessel be expected to be able to do?
· Where is it more efficient to exclude certain tasks and dedicate specialist ships to those missions?
