For the fourth time in a row, Sovcomflot supports the LNG Fleet, LNG Bunkering and Alternatives conference as its Partner, says an article published in Portnews.
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.
Increasing use of H2 gas,methanol
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.
LNG fleet, LNG bunkers and Alternative conference
The 5th LNG Fleet, LNG Bunkering and Alternatives conference will be held by IAA PortNews on 27 October 2021 at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation (Moscow) with Gazprom as the General Partner.
The Conference will be held in online and in-person formats with Russia and English as its working languages.
