ABP also operates one of the UK's busiest rail terminals at Hams Hall in the Midlands. Challenge 1: Novel Alternative Approaches to Vessel Propulsion Systems ?ABP are keen to explore vessel performance optimisation (VPO) across their fleet to use resources more effectively, decrease fuel consumption and emissions, and create safer, less wasteful operations. It is important for ABP to develop their equipment towards a greener option which doesn’t involve replacing all existing equipment but reduces and improves existing equipment’s green credibility to meet a target of ‘zero Carbon’ for 2050.
