High consumption of fuel and emissions from ships has brought a new perspective tospeed optimization of ship. The reducing in fuel consumption can provide higher savings on the total cost of the vessel. Some regulations on environmental issues have been designated by International Maritime Organization (IMO) and other bodies. This research is based on the development of speed optimization. With case studies of MV. Meratus Mamiri which serving routes of Tj. Priok port-Tj. Perak port, Indonesia. The result of this study expected reduce the fuel consumption and emission of the ship based on speed optimization.
