Path to IMO 2050 and the role of LNG as a marine fuel

Steering towards alternative future fuels and the importance of LNG as the transition fuel

This joint presentation by Wärtsilä and Bureau Veritas will outline the direction that the path towards decarbonised shipping is likely to take. The development of a diverse palette of potential clean fuels, capable of enabling ship owners to comply with the IMO’s guidelines, will play a key role. Which of these will become viable? And when will the supply and regulatory infrastructure be ready to accommodate them?


Key learning takeaways:

  • Get insights into how LNG, an established and viable transition fuel, will continue to remain relevant as an alternative fuel towards IMO 2050 and the important role it will play for the next two decades.
  • From this webinar, you will learn how Bureau Veritas has supported the maritime industry in its transition towards LNG as a fuel over the last decade.
  • Understand how technologies developed for LNG as a fuel have helped the maritime industry to innovate solutions for other alternative fuels as we march towards IMO 2050. 
  • Discover how hybrid technology, energy storage, and renewable energy sources will benefit your fleet paving the way to regulation compliance.
