In accordance with the current regulations, the companies have to investigate the suitability of the applied operational measures; to assess the available solutions for the energy efficiency improvement of their fleet; and produce more suitable operational measures or revise their already applied measures. For this purpose, there is need to have a SEEMP and achieve EEOI targets. In this paper, a method for the prediction of the annual performance of the energy efficiency for a company’s fleet, based on Monte Carlo Simulation will be presented. As a case study, the method will be applied on a chemical tanker fleet. Recorded voyage data, including EEOI values, cargo type and quantity, mileage covered, speed profiles, fuel types etc., will be used. Conclusions on the feasibility, usability, reliability as well as suggestions for further development of the method will be included.
