Title: Implications of Bunker Consumption Monitoring in Liner Shipping

Abstract: The Thesis researches how accommodation specific dynamic positioning (DP) simulator courses can be developed. The purpose of the study was to identify critical elements during advanced marine DP operations and which to include in a simulator training course. The aim was to minimize risk and contribute to safer marine operations. A mixed method approach has been used in order to reach the objectives. A survey was conducted on DP operators within Floatel Int. to identify critical elements and areas subjected for training. The results from the survey were concluded and later analysed in the interviews. The results from the survey were discussed and verified by five in-depth interviews with DP operators. The survey identified: PMS, PRS, Gangway system, Human Factors, Follow Target and Communication as critical elements. These categories have been arranged in a declining order. Respondents in the interviews then singled out the three most critical elements to include in an accommodation specific DP simulator course: Human Factors, PRS and Follow Target. An interview was arranged with a simulator trainer from the Swedish Maritime Administration in order to get an objective opinion of the results. The simulator trainer could relate to the findings except for Follow Target, this due to the limited knowledge of the element.
