ClassNK publishes guidelines for ships using alternative fuels

ClassNK has released its “Guidelines for Ships Using Alternative Fuels” including updates on the safety requirements for ships using ammonia as fuel. Ammonia has captured attention as a zero carbon fuel. Appropriate safety measures are required for ammonia as it is toxic to humans and corrosive to materials, while specific international standards for the use...

New concept design for ammonia-fuel ready LNG-fuelled ship

Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), MTI, and Elomatic, have launched the development of a concept design for an Ammonia-fuel Ready LNG-Fuelled Vessel (ARLFV), which can be converted to a ship using ammonia as a marine fuel once its supply is ready. ARLFV is set as a “Next Bridge Solution” to cover the transition of the...

IUMI calls for mandatory requirements around green fuels

The International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) fully supports the shipping industry’s move to decarbonisation but recognises that adequate risk management provision must be in place to underpin the transition. New fuel types such as ammonia and hydrogen are being promoted and their use will need to be properly managed and insured – and this...

Methanol-powered ships could be more competitive than other alternative fuels

Methanol as a commercially and technically viable marine fuel is gaining greater traction over other alternative bunkers, including LNG, as more shipowners adopt the clean burning fuel as price spreads narrow and production ramps up. Speaking at a virtual conference last week, Greg Dolan, CEO of the Methanol Institute noted that methanol production costs will...

ABS leads consortium studying alternative fuels and decarbonisation technologies

A consortium led by ABS, along with CE Delft and Arcsilea is to perform six studies on alternative fuels and decarbonisation technologies for the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA). The four-year project will study key aspects of the decarbonisation of shipping, including biofuels, ammonia, hydrogen, wind-assisted propulsion, air lubrication and other promising technologies. The initiative...
