Charting practical paths to comply with carbon reduction trajectories

“ The maritime industry will go through a period of rapid energy and technology transition that will have a more significant impact on costs, asset values and earning capacity than many earlier transitions,” Linda Sigrid Hammer, Principal Consultant, Environment Advisory in Maritime at DNV and lead author of Maritime Forecast to 2050 reflects. Driving the ongoing maritime energy transition “Regulatory focus on progressively stricter limits on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is increasing the compliance challenge over vessel lifecycles as carbon-reduction trajectories rapidly head towards zero,” Hammer continues. “Stricter carbon requirements ...

ABS and DSME to Develop Very Large Liquefied CO2 Carrier

ABS and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) are to jointly develop designs for a 70,000 CBM very large, liquefied CO2 (LCO2) carrier. The joint development project (JDP) is responding to the development of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) technology, which will ultimately require larger vessels for CO2 transport than those used in the existing food industry. “CCUS can play a role in reducing emissions in a range of industries, but the supply chain will need vessels capable of transporting CO2 safely and efficiently. That’s why this ...

Maritime Industry: no chance at Net Zero without investment “sea change” this year

Maritime industry leaders have written to the Chancellor calling for a “sea change” in investment and collaboration no later than this year, or Britain will fail its 2050 net zero target. The sector is calling for £1billion co-investment, so Britain’s fleets can be renewed in time for 2050, given the average lifespan of a ship is 30 years. And the government’s £20million Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, announced today, which funds trials and research, is described as a “drop in the ocean” for what the industry and environment needs. The letter ...
