The Methanol Institute has welcomed methanol consultancy Green Marine as its latest member, which will provide training for crews onboard dual-fuelled vessels.
reen Marine has recently finalised a specialist training programme for crews onboard methanol dual-fuel vessels, supplementing baseline regulatory training requirements with practical, experience-based learning.
The company’s Asia team is participating in the development of rules and standards for methanol bunkering in Singapore, including taking part in a panel of experts to establish policy and training. Stakeholders include local regulators and academics, industry associations and classification societies, in addition to bunker operators.
We are very happy to have Green Marine as a member and we look forward to working together in future to share its operational expertise and practical knowledge as the industry continues its transition to cleaner operations.
… said Methanol Institute, CEO Gregory Dolan.
The crew training programme was created based on practical knowledge gathered over a decade of experience working on methanol dual fuel vessels with services from design consultancy to newbuilding construction supervision, technical management and operations.
The curriculum, which can be delivered onboard, in a classroom or online, was developed to address the knowledge gaps between theoretical regulation and practical experience in the use of methanol as marine fuel.
Theoretical knowledge is little use in real life situations when you need to know what to do; we bridge that gap and provide practical knowledge to support crews in adopting this methanol dual fuel technology.
… said Morten Jacobsen, CEO of Green Marine
To remind, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels and Green Marine Bunkering announced this week that they have entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a joint development study on methanol as a new marine fuel in Singapore.
