DNV supports innovations in CO2 carrier design

To have any hope of meeting the Paris and Glasgow Agreement goals we need to remove 6–7 gigatonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere every year from 2050 onwards. Alternative fuels and energy saving will help, but too much CO2 is being emitted all the time, also as a by-product of basic industries such as steel and cement. CCS is a key element in tackling the decarbonization challenge, and time is of the essence. Several hundred new ships needed in the next decades Putting CO2 back underground where it came from, ...

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Tsuneishi Shipbuilding and Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding Start Joint Development on Net Zero Emission Ammonia-fueled Ocean-going Liquefied Gas Carrier

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd., Tsuneishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. and Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. announced the launch of a joint project aimed at developing and building an ocean-going liquefied gas carrier that will use ammonia as its main fuel. The vessel is envisioned as a mid-size ammonia/LPG carrier equipped with a main engine that can run mainly on ammonia, and targeting to achieve net zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions while underway by using some of its ammonia cargo as fuel. This ship type is in the mainstream of ammonia carriers ...

The Getting to Zero Coalition convenes to develop action plan for maritime decarbonization

What should maritime stakeholders focus on in the coming years to accelerate maritime decarbonization? At this week’s Getting to Zero Coalition Workshop, participating Coalition members collaborated on detailing out an action plan to make the full decarbonization of shipping concrete and tangible. Participants focused on the combination and acceleration of four change levers: technology on land and on board, mobilizing demand, financing, and policy. “Since the Coalition’s establishment in 2019, we have come a long way together on our journey to decarbonize international shipping,” says Johannah Christensen, CEO of the ...

ABS and Texas A&M Qatar Agree on Landmark Carbon Capture Joint Study

A landmark study into carbon capture and the global supply chain is to be carried out in collaboration between ABS and Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ). The project will research the potential of carbon capture technology at sea. It will explore CO2 reduction strategies as well as emerging onshore CO2 reduction technology and establish a model for effective CO2 capture on an LNG vessel. The study will also examine the effect of the energy transition toward a hydrogen-based economy on processing, emissions and shipping across Qatar as an energy ...

DNV awards KSOE with AiP for new LNG fuel supply system Hi-eGAS

Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) and its subsidiary Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have received an Approval in Principle (AiP) from DNV for their newly developed waste heat-derived LNG fuel supply system Hi-eGAS (Hyundai High Efficient Gas Supply System) for 300K VLCC. Currently, LNG fuel propulsion ships have used boilers to make hot steam, which has converted LNG into a gas at room temperature to supply a ship’s engine. However, this process has the disadvantage of increasing fuel costs and carbon emissions. The concept of the waste heat of engine ...

Samskip and Ocean Infinity secure funds to drive forward hydrogen-fuelled SeaShuttle container ship

SeaShuttle, the ambitious project to build two hydrogen-powered, remotely controlled and autonomous-ready containerships for delivery by 2025 has secured NOK150 million (€15M) in funding from Norwegian state enterprise ENOVA. The bold scheme, led by multimodal transport and logistics group Samskip and marine robotics specialist Ocean Infinity, envisages two SeaShuttle ships operating emissions-free between Oslo Fjord and Rotterdam, with each powered by a 3.2MW hydrogen fuel cell. ENOVA, which operates under Norway’s Ministry of Climate and Environment, promotes a shift towards more environmentally friendly energy consumption and production, as well as ...

First electric flying ferry will make Stockholm’s waterborne public transport faster than cars and subway

The marine technology company Candela released the first pictures of what will be the world’s fastest, longest-range and most energy efficient electric ship ever. The Candela P-12 Shuttle, as the innovative vessel is called, will be shuttling citizens between the sprawling Stockholm suburb of Ekerö and the city center in the coming year. Flying across the water, the 30-passenger electric vessel has a speed of 30 knots – considerably faster than any other electric ship in the world. It also provides faster commuting than the subway and bus lines it ...

ECSA welcomes Parliament’s strong support to Ocean Fund and ETS costs’ pass-through to operators

European shipowners welcome the strong cross-party support by the plenary of the European Parliament for key provisions under the revised Emission Trading System for shipping. The European Parliament decided today its position on the revision of the EU ETS in the run-up to the negotiations with the Council (trilogues). A key element of the Parliament’s position is the enforcement of the ‘polluter-pays’ principle, by ensuring the mandatory pass-through of the ETS costs to the commercial operators of the vessels through contractual clauses. ECSA also welcomes the proposal of the Parliament ...
