HFO use by flag state in IMO Polar Code Arctic

There are eight Arctic states; however, ships that operate in the Arctic fly many flags. Summarizing the use and carriage of HFO in the IMO’s Polar Code Arctic by flag state, an ICCT report finds that Russian-flagged ships consumed the most HFO by far in the area in 2015, distantly followed by Canada and Denmark.

Shipping industry shows commitment on HFO ban

Revealed at the Arctic Frontiers conference in January 2017 by the Clean Arctic Alliance, the Arctic Commitment aims to protect Arctic communities and ecosystems from the risks posed by the use of heavy fuel oil, and calls on the IMO to ban its use and carriage as fuel by Arctic shipping.

One third of shipping to choose exhaust gas scrubbers

Shipowners considering their marine fuel future following the 2020 IMO 0.5% sulphur cap, should also take into consideration the expectation of oil companies, that almost 30% of commercial shipping will return to high sulphur fuel oil by 2030, Foreship said.

LNG Marine Fuel Institute opens in Australia

In mid-2016, several industry bodies from the Australian marine sector came together, sharing a conviction that bunkering Heavy Fuel Oil, which traditionally powers global maritime shipping trade, had to change. It was clear that LNG was a significantly cleaner transitional energy source, that could replace HFO. To this end, a LNG Marine Fuel Institute is officially launched in Australia.

Cleaner fuels may lower risk for Arctic shipping, report says

ICCT has published a report which compares the economic and environmental trade-offs of switching from HFO to distillate or liquefied natural gas (LNG) for ships in the Arctic, following recent concerns that the transition to low-sulphur fuels, distillates, or LNG will be more costly than continuing to use HFO

CMA CGM, ENGIE support LNG for tomorrow’s container ships

CMA CGM and ENGIE have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to promote LNG as the marine fuel for tomorrow’s container vessels. The two groups consider that the use of LNG as a marine fuel is destined to expand in the near future and intend to be active players in this development.
