7th Gas Fuelled Ships Conference 2016

The 6th Gas Fuelled Ships Conference addressed the use of LNG as a maritime fuel, comparing it with other up and coming low flash point fuel options including Ethanol and Methanol and other alternatives for ECA compliance. Presentations on fuel availability, cost, design implications, supply infrastructure, technology and operator feedback plus roundtable discussions formed part of the two day programme ensuring that information and knowledge sharing was at a maximum. The operator panel on ECA implementation and compliance provided attendees with a valuable insight into how major operators such as Hapag Lloyd, Maersk Maritime Technology, Stena and Carnival Corporation are addressing the next deadline in 2020. Day three included technical visits to the methanol fuelled Stena Germanica ferry and the Becker Marine/AIDA Cruises’ LNG hybrid barge.

The conference is the only technical conference to combine an informative and knowledge based conference with technical visits giving delegates access to real life operations of current gas fuelled vessels as well as networking opportunities at its welcome reception and conference dinner.

With the 2015 event meeting or exceeding the expectations of over 92% of attendees, the 2016 edition will be a must attend event for ship owners and operators, policy makers, engine manufacturers, ship builders, classification societies, ship designers, ship yards and port & terminal operators who are looking to be kept informed of options for the ongoing ECA regulations with particular reference to using gas, and alternatives, as a maritime fuel.

The stringent Sulphur regulations which apply to fuels used on ships within Emission Control Areas (ECA) will be coming in to force in 2015! These increasingly tough environmental regulations mean that further investment to reduce emissions in the shipping industry is needed now. However, this focus on green issues and environmental legislation potentially increases costs. Switching to cleaner fuels could be the solution, and with an abundant supply of natural gas, LNG is becoming the most promising maritime fuel. For ships trading in the North American ECA LNG may further provide an easy compliance with the NOx Tier III standard. LNG is price-competitive with fuel oils but needs further investment in the gas supply chain to encourage wider use by shipping. A change to alternative fuels also brings about other areas for development such as ship architecture and the safety aspects for storage and handling of gas on board ships.

The Gas Fuelled Ships Conference provides an unrivalled opportunity for your company to place its expertise in front of a highly relevant, influential audience. Diverse sponsorship opportunities are available catering for all budgets.
