Turbochargers for reportedly world’s largest two-stroke dual-fuel engine

The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment Co., Ltd. announced its delivery MET Turbochargers for one the largest two-stroke dual-fuel X-DF engine, 12X92DF. Behind the engine’s development was the Winterthur Gas & Diesel and responsible for the establishment was the China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC).

Infographic: LNG reduces GHG emissions by 21%

SEA\LNG and SGMF launched a study according to which GHG reductions of up to 21% are achievable now from LNG as a marine fuel, in comparison to the existent oil-based marine fuels over the entire life-cycle from Well-to-Wake (WtW). The study also confirms that emissions from SOx, NOx and particulate matter, are close to zero when using LNG compared with current conventional oil-based marine fuels.

Costa Cruises’ first LNG-fueled vessel floated out

Shipbuilder Meyer Turku informed that Costa Smeralda was floated out with traditional ceremonies at the Meyer Turku shipyard, on March 15. The float-out of Costa Smeralda, an LNG fueled 180 000 GT cruise ship, signals the start of the final stage of construction for the ship. The ceremony marks the outfitting phase in the ship’s construction. The ship will be ready for delivery for Costa Cruises in October 2019.

IKEA, CMA CGM, GoodShipping Program to test marine bio-fuel oil

IKEA Transport & Logistics Services, CMA CGM, the GoodShipping Program and the Port of Rotterdam will collaborate in a first of its kind partnership to test and scale the use of sustainable marine bio-fuel oil. The test will begin with a bunkering of the marine bio-fuel oil on a CMA CGM container vessel on March 19th. If the pilot is successfully completed, then the intention would be to put the equivalent of at least all of IKEA’s containers out of Rotterdam on biofuel.

How shipping industry addresses GHG: Targets set, what’s next?

There have been critical debates on potential solutions for reducing CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions in all sectors. As part of the Paris Agreement, adopted by consensus on 12 December 2015, long-term goals have been set by several countries around the globe to limit the increase in global average temperature in an effort to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Trials for world’s first zero emission, ‘drop in’ HFO completed

GoodFuels Marine along with bulker and tanker owner and operator Norden A/S, has successfully completed trials of the world’s first zero emission, ‘drop in’ Heavy Fuel Oil. The Bio-Fuel Oil is able to deliver almost zero carbon and Sulphur Oxide emissions without requiring engine modifications.

MEPC 73 starts its session with a focus on GHG

IMO’s MEPC 73 has started its session, which will last from 22 to 26 of October.  MEPC moved ahead with its work to deliver the IMO initial strategy on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships, approving a programme of follow-up actions. A working group on GHG reduction will continue discussions, including the fourth IMO GHG study.

Conducting an assessment of port emissions

The first guide of ‘The Port Emissions Toolkit’: Assessment of port emissions, incorporates the latest emission inventory methods and approaches. It recognizes that ships do not operate independently from shore-based entities in the maritime transportation system, and that port emission considerations must extend beyond the ships themselves.
