Effective ship propulsion, and reducing emissions, a hot topic for discussion
With the new IMO regulations coming into force – Ship owners are constantly be looking towards cleaner, renewable future proof solutions…
According to Bill Gates; ‘Nuclear power’ is now a potential viable solution via Thermal Storage & Steam technology which at consistent temperatures will provide more than enough power required to operate a vessel,
In addition, the very first liquid Hydrogen powered vessel arriving into Havila’s fleet due some time in 2023 – powered by a 3.2MW fuel cell.
Until then, many are embracing the more traditional methods;
Installing scrubber technologies, optimising on fuel consumption vs speed, tighter maintenance schedules, and LNG Fuelled ships.
Exciting time for the industry, and for future Marine Personnel, a constantly evolving scene!
What do you think is most effective and viable?
How do we keep our seafarers safe with this technology onboard?
