Poseidon Med II: LNG leads the path to a sustainable marine transportation

Mr George Polychroniou, Executive Director Strategy and Business Development DEPA COMMERCIAL, and Project Manager of the European project Poseidon Med II, explains the reasons why the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel can lead marine transportation to a greener and more sustainable future, in a cost – efficient manner for ship-owners.

LNG as a marine fuel

During the 2020 GREEN4SEA Athens Forum, Mr. Panayiotis Mitrou, Global Gas Segment Manager, Lloyd’s Register Marine & Offshore, shared his views on LNG as a fuel, towards 2050 compliance and beyond.

Addressing training requirements on LNG fueled ships

During the 2019 SAFETY4SEA Athens Forum, Mr. Stavros Niotis, Principal Engineer OEP, ABS, discusses the STCW requirements of seafarers’ training, noting the three training types and the importance of seafarer competency and knowledge of people onboard the sea.

LNG fuel is not a solution for reducing GHG’s

In stark contrast to media reports claiming that the use of LNG as a marine fuel can reduce the industry’s CO2 emissions by 75%, Ian Adams, former CEO of IBIA, notes that LNG is not a panacea to reducing GHG emissions and its increasing use could be worse for the environment than burning heavy fuel oil.
