Offering simple handling and storage, reliable combustion and near carbon-neutral power (when made using renewable electricity and captured carbon), it is no surprise that methanol is emerging as a leading candidate for decarbonising shipping.
Wärtsilä’s methanol-fuelled engines have powered the Stena Line ferry Stena Germanica since 2015. Now ship owners can take advantage of this long-established methanol expertise with all the state-of-the-art features of one of Wärtsilä’s most widely used engine platforms – offering a viable and proven next step on the path to decarbonisation.

If you are considering a switch to low-carbon fuel, methanol is an attractive option. Green methanol has the potential to be carbon free, and it meets current and future emissions targets in terms of NOx, SOx and particulates.
