to discuss the implementation of projects on using LNG and other alternative fuels by ships, determine the problems related to creation and development of the new sector, outline the ways of solution
The global transition of seaborne transport to alternative fuels is already a snowballing process. The key role in the array of alternatives is being played by liquefied natural gas (LNG): more and more shipping companies transfer their fleets to LNG with the development of infrastructure for LNG bunkering underway.
Meanwhile, projects on transition to hydrogen gas are getting increasingly relevant. This type of fuel ensures the highest efficiency in terms of carbon footprint – while having characteristics similar to those of nuclear power it poses no similar risks. Besides, experts emphasize considerable gain in performance of ship power plants after their conversion to hydrogen (electrochemical generator). However, there is no infrastructure for hydrogen-powered shipping today.
Methanol is also considered as a promising fuel for sea and inland shipping.
