5. Busting the most common myths about air lubrication for ships

Five common misconceptions about air lubrication – and why they’re wrong separated the fact from the fiction about air lubrication. Despite over a decade of increasing energy efficiency for major players in the maritime industry, there are still things people are getting wrong about this ground-breaking technology. From how it works to whether it affects other energy-saving devices, how many of these do you know?


4. Methanol – Fuel for thought in our deep-dive Q&A

Intrigued about how future fuels can help decarbonise shipping? In Methanol – Fuel for thought in our deep-dive Q&A four experts discuss the advantages of methanol as a future fuel for shipping. They also look at the challenges that need to be considered. With topics ranging from improving EEXI values and CII ratings to the latest price trends, there’s a lot to learn here.


3. Does hydrogen have what it takes to be a future marine fuel?

It’s no surprise that hydrogen’s potential was also intriguing to ship owners and operators. Four Wärtsilä experts came together to discuss its potential as a future fuel for maritime applications. From regulatory concerns to storage considerations, it’s well worth checking out Hydrogen – Fuel for thought in our Q&A.


2. Complying with EEXI – how to speed up decarbonisation without slowing down vessels

With 2023 almost upon us, vessel owners are running out of time to comply with the IMO’s EEXI and CII measures. Finding the right pathway to compliance is not always easy, so there was a lot of interest in Complying with EEXI – how to speed up decarbonisation without slowing down vessels. If you’re looking for help with compliance – without reducing sailing speeds – this one’s for you.
