This document is related to the report D8.2 of the workpackage 8 of the Fibreship project. The main goal of this workpackage was to provide cost benefit analysis support throughout to entire project in the technical work packages related to the analysis of large-length fibre-based commercial vessels (FRP) such as the three types targeted in the project: container ship, Ro-Pax, and Fishing Research Vessel (FRV) and to benchmark them with conventional steel (BAU) vessels. Technical decision support with cost-benefit analysis included production, operation and dismantling of the above mentioned vessels of the same size by using NPV, RRI and ROI calculations, with the reflection of operational costs in fuel saving due to weight reduction. The deliverable reflects to the needs of industry stakeholders by revealing cost-benefit information and concludes with the financial comparison between conventional (steel) and FRP vessels.
The experience acquired throughout the project has been implemented in different cost-benefit analysis tools for the targeted vessels. These tools can be found below.
