Abstract
It has always been difficult to incorporate the effect of environmental conditions into an economical evaluation. This
study shows that scenario simulations can be a valuable tool to get an idea about the uncertainties concerning power
demand and roundtrip duration due to wind, waves and current. This paper presents the procedure and results of an
economical evaluation of an LNG carrier with two different propulsion plant configurations. The evaluation is firstly
performed without weather influences. Subsequently, the weather influences are incorporated by using scenario
simulations.
