LNG fuelled ships

Dual-fuel ferries mark UK first : the dual-fuel ferries under construction at Ferguson Marine for Caledonian MacBrayne Assets [CMAL) represent a significant milestone in several respects. Gavin Lipsith spoke to vessel designer Houlder about the project. -- China starts small : China's strategy to develop the market for LNG as marine fuel may begin with smaller, inland vessels. But its ambitions are anything but small, Dr. Gan Shower, director of LNG at China Classification Society (CCS) told delegates to the Asia Pacific Maritime conference. -- Evolving cryogenic valve design : legislation governing Emissions Control Areas [ECAs], introduced on 1 January 2015, has led to a greater focus within the shipbuilding industry on the use of 'cleaner fuels'. Ships operating in these designated emission control areas are required to use fuel oil on board that has a sulphur content of no more than 0.10%. -- New year, new tier : as regulations including IMO Tier II and III NOx emissions limits drive a change in engine technologies towards LNG-powered and dual-fuelled propulsion, new safety concepts are required, writes Roland Bunse, inventor of flameless venting technology and senior consultant at Rembe. -- MHI delivers new-generation cruise ship.
