The shipping industry must consider multiple factors in moving towards decarbonisation, including the future demand for energy and the varied impact on short and deepsea fleet, writes Georgios Plevrakis, Director of Global Sustainability at ABS.
Internal combustion engines (ICEs) represent the dominant technology in marine propulsion today. If ICEs are to play a role in the decarbonization of shipping, suppliers, regulators, shipowners and engine manufacturers will have to agree on viable alternatives to carbon-based fuel, argues Dr Christos Chryssakis, Business Development Manager at DNV GL.
During the 2020 SAFETY4SEA Limassol Forum, Dr. John Kokarakis, Vice President Technology & Business Development, Bureau Veritas, discussed ammonia as a potential solution for carbon-free shipping. During his presentation, Dr. Kokarakis presented the advantages of ammonia on the one hand, and the challenges on the other, adding that difficulties around ammonia can be controlled by technical and regulatory options.
During the 2020 SAFETY4SEA London Forum, Martin Crawford-Brunt, Chief Executive Officer, Rightship, focused on the mega trend of decarbonization and analyzed the importance of having an efficient fleet towards the ambitious target of reducing emissions significantly.
During the 2019 SAFETY4SEA Athens Forum, Mr. Stavros Meidanis, DPA/CSO, S&Q Manager, Capital Ship Management Corp shared his views on how shipping will look like in 2030 even 2050, focusing on implications for ship managers in the future.
