Methane slip from LNG fueled engines

Mr. Antonis Trakakis, Chief Technology Officer at Forward Ships, talks about methane slips from LNG fueled engines. Mr. Trakakis notes that these emissions are not inherent to the natural gas. The problem lies at the applied heat cycle, making the amount of methane slip depend on the technology of each engine.

LNG is the best fuel option for payback in the long term

In an exclusive interview with GREEN4SEA, Antonis Trakakis, Arista Shipping outlines the benefits of using LNG as marine fuel and notes that with the implementation of the Global Sulphur Cap, the economics will be the catalyst in operator’s decision for the best fuel option. Considering that LNG itself comes at very low cost, it is the delivery cost that makes it comparable to fuel. Should the availability of LNG been widespread as for liquid fuel, then LNG would be the obvious selection.
