To power shipping in the future, Wärtsilä is investigating a wide range of fuels, including bio and synthetic liquefied natural gas (LNG) and natural gas along with ammonia, methanol, hydrogen and biofuels. Wärtsilä’s research draws on deep experience gained through decades of building engines as well as supply and storage systems for a wide range of fuels. Wärtsilä is leading the way in developing a wide range of engine and fuel gas supply systems to help ship owners navigate the route to reduced GHG emissions – whatever fuels they choose.
We have today the technology needed to use most future fuels.
Development is on-going for the rest.
Before we begin discussing future fuels, an important distinction should be made between so-called ‘carbon-neutral’ and ‘zero-emission’ fuels.
