Paper Title
The Effect of Sea State on The Container Fuel Consumption, Practical Case Study

Ship speed and fuel consumption variations on different wind speed and directions are analyzed over two years. Sailing speed, displacement, sailing time, and specific fuel consumption were obtained from Master noon reports of one container vessel operating in west Africa. This paper aims to define sea. state influence on ship speed and fuel consumptions based on statistical approach. The result is expected to help crew on vessel routing and fuel cost optimization.
