Shipping has used many different sources of energy

Oil has dominated the last century, it’s now time to look for new types of fuel. Driven by:

Environmental concerns – new regulations

Increased oil prices

New technologies

environmental regulations

compliance strategies

mgo and low sulphur oils
MGO and lowsulphuroils
  • Price developmentof MGO is predictedtorise (EIA).
  • Oilcompanies and refineryowners, for example Swedish Preem, areworkingtodeliverlow-sulphuroilblendsto the market before 1.1.2015, mostprobablystrategicallypricedslightlybelow MGO alternatives.
  • To complywithupcoming NOXregulations, EGR or SCR technologyneedsto be installed on board ships.
l ng case study
LNG casestudy
  • Currently 49 ships in operation, 61 in orderbook and >100 projectsdiscussed (DNVGL, 2014)
  • Liquidmethanecanalso be produced from bio feedstockforming LBG
  • Safety record satisfying
  • New infrastructureinvestmentsrequired for small scale distribution networks.
  • Questionoffuture LNG bunker pricedevelopments.
  • LNG in four-stroke technologiescomplieswithfuture SOX and NOX emissions capswithout extra abatementtechnologies.
  • Cryogenicstorage tanks demanded on board vessel

lng case study baltic so 2 lution
LNG casestudy – Baltic SO2lution
  • Fournewbuilt tanker vessels, firstto be delivered in 2016.
  • First installation of 2-stroke-engine technology for LNG complyingwithupcoming NOX and SOX requirements.
methanol case study
  • Global commodity (55 million tons annually)
  • Can be produced from variousfeedstock
  • Exiting global infrastructure
  • Liquid at roomtemperature, can be stored in similar tank on board and ashore as oilproducts
  • Similarreductions in air emissions as LNG (CO2, NOX, SOX, PM)
  • Retrofits needsignificantly less adjustmentthan LNG
  • Toxic
  • Question on pricedevelopment for marine market
  • Todaylarge retrofits and newbuildsplanned, but still in trial stages

scrubber case study
  • Continueduseofheavyfueloils
  • Aftertreatmentoffuelgasesextractssulphur
  • Additionaltechniquesneededto minimise NOXlevels in outlet gases
  • Flexible solution suitable for shipswithoutfixed bunkering points over time
  • Technicallycomplicated, bothregarding the scrubberitself and technically for the ship

methanol case study1
  • Rules are in place for methanol in the IMO IGF –code and Class rules ( LR & DnV)
  • Low flashpoint fuel like LNG
  • FlashpointMethanol + 11 C.
  • FlaspointLNG -188 C.
  • Self ignition Methanol+ 465 C.
  • Self ignition LNG+ 595 C.
  • Infrastructure and safety similar to ethanol and petrol
  • Liquid –no high pressure or cryogenic storage required
scrubber case study pilot scrubber
Scrubbercasestudy – Pilot scrubber
  • Installation, evaluation and demonstration of a new generation, innovative lightweight scrubber technology in full scale on existing Ro-Ro vessels TransAtlanticTranspaper type and WagenborgSchieborg, operating in the Baltic Sea and in the North Sea.
